Celebrating its 70th anniversary this year, Japanese watch brand ORIENT STAR presents the latest addition to its Contemporary Collection, the Layered Skeleton. The four new wristwatches, which include one limited-edition 70th anniversary model, are inspired by the elegant layering of fabrics, drapes, curves and textiles seen in business suits.
The upper layer dial of the new Layered Skeleton watches represents the outer material of a suit is designed with a herringbone pattern while the lower layer dial has a paisley pattern. The contrasting fabric patterns provide a unique accent to the overall look of the watch.
The semi-skeleton opening on the dial is paisley shaped, and the open-work design of the power reserve display also reveals the inner workings of the mechanical movement. This sense of depth combined with the textile patterns creates an eye-catching look. The dial is available in three colours: brown herringbone, black herringbone, and white herringbone.
Brown and black herringbone models are combined with a navy-blue paisley design for two toned contrast.
The white herringbone model is combined with a simple silver-coloured lower layer, with the contrasting luster of the layers creating a sense of depth.
The collection also includes a limited-edition model to celebrate the 70th anniversary of ORIENT STAR with just 1,400 pieces available worldwide.
This exceptional model, featuring a layered green dial highlighted with a navy-blue gradation and large glittering silver and blue accents, reflects the nebula concept common to all the 70th anniversary limited-edition models, making it a truly exceptional premium model.
The gentle curves of the lugs evoke the dimple of a tie or the drape of fabric, and the case featuring a dual-curved sapphire crystal creates an elegant impression with water resistant to 10 bar.
The three non-limited Layered Skeleton models feature an elegant five-piece links bracelet made of high-quality SUS316L stainless steel. The limited edition model comes with a navy blue leather strap.
All Layered Skeleton models are equipped with the high-quality in-house 46-F6 series movement with power reserve of 50 hours.
