Japanese watch brand Orient Star expands its Sports Collection by introducing two new Avant-garde Skeleton models. These new watches come with Orient Star’s first automatic movement with a silicon escapement wheel.
Alongside other Skeleton models from the Orient Star Classic and Contemporary collections, the Avant-garde Skeleton from the Sports Collection is known for its dynamic designs and bold openwork. The latest models have evolved to a new level with advanced precision processing technology on the dial and movement.
The new Avant-garde Skeleton spotlights a precision-moulded openwork dial. The complex two-layer dial layout has been skilfully calculated for a seamless look.
The upper plate with indices features a different colour and finish to the lower plate. The well arranged hands stand out from the upper plate, giving a sense of depth and dimension to the distinct skeleton structure. The SAR-coated sapphire crystal glass offers clear view of every facet of the design.
The new Orient Star Avant-garde Skeleton watches house the caliber F8F64 automatic movement with silicon escapement wheel.
This movement boasts Geneva stripes on the surface. It has a partially hollowed-out base plate revealing a blue silicon escapement wheel near the small second of the 6 o’clock position. This was created using a cutting-edge high precision manufacturing technology which has been registered for Japanese and international patents.
The caliber F8F64 has a 60-hour power reserve – a first for Orient Star’s automatic movement. Moreover, it offers high accuracy of +15 seconds to -5 seconds per day.
The high-quality stainless steel case and bezel with hexagonal screws have a delicate brushed finish, while the mirror finish achieved with Sallaz polishing enhances the elegance.
Among the new models, the first one comes with a stainless steel bracelet. The second version combines a black-plated case and dial with a Cordura Ballistic Nylon strap.
