Japanese watch brand Orient has added three new Diver Design Chronograph models to its Sports Collection. Fusing sporty and casual styles, these first chronographs in the Diver design series house solar-powered movements.
Introduced in 2004, the Diver design series is a best-selling collection of Orient. For the first time, the lineup now includes solar-powered chronograph models alongside the existing mechanical watches.
The new Diver design chronograph models come with a uni-directional rotating bezel with six grooves common to the series, along with a metal dial with a fine luster finish.
Solar battery charging is achieved through the three subdials; a 24-hour indicator at 3 o’clock, a 60-minute counter at 6 o’clock, and a small second subdial at 9 o’clock.
An Arabic numeral inspired by the first Diver design model adorns the 12 o’clock position, and Luminous Light is used for the numeral, indices and hands, allowing the wearer to read the time even in the dark.
The dial with metallic texture comes in three colours, blue, black and white. All three colours come with black subdials, and each of the colourways enhances the sporty design that characterises chronograph watches. The glass is made of scratch-resistant sapphire crystal. Fitted with the screw down crown and case back, this watch has a water resistance of 20 bar.
