Orient and Orient Star, the two world-renowned watch brands owned by Japan’s Epson Corporation, are now available in the UK for the very first time.
ORIENT Bambino 38mm
A key highlight from the Orient watch collection is the new Bambino 38mm series from the Classic Collection.
The international best-selling ORIENT Bambino series now includes a long awaited 38mm diameter case perfect for both men and women.
This new Classic and Simple style, fondly known as the ORIENT Bambino by dedicated fans, has been a best-seller over the last decade in over 70 countries around the world. Until now, they featured mostly 40.5mm case diameters; however, these latest models feature a more compact 38mm case. Price: £299.99.
Orient Neo Classic Sports
ORIENT has also released a new Neo Classic Sports model to its Sports Collection. The watches offer a rich retro design, taking inspiration from ORIENT’s designs from the 1960s and 1970s, with additional contemporary high quality performance.
The Neo Classic Sports models reference this period through their design with a block-patterned scale with think Luminous Light hands, the cushioned case from the World Map model and the rotating inner bezel of the King Diver and World Map models.
Modern additions include the contemporary bronze and black case, an enhanced water-resistance to 20 bar and in-house calibre F6922 automatic movement providing stable accuracy. Price: £445.
Orient Star Contemporary Skeleton
The Japanese watchmaker also launched the new Orient Star Skeleton from the Contemporary Collection. It comes with the hand-wound F8B61 movement with a silicon escape wheel and a 70-hour power reserve. Its modern and stylish design includes sophisticated details, and the hand-wound skeleton movement symbolises the vastness of the universe.
The new Orient Star Contemporary Skeleton is neither too formal nor too casual, with a modern and stylish design that is both refined yet informal. Fine hair line and mirror finishing on high-quality stainless steel give an edgy aesthetic appeal to the case and bracelet, and the dial tinted in grey gives a sophisticated and stylish look.
The compact and slim case with a diameter of 39 mm and thickness of 10.8 mm, the new metal bracelet with short pitch H-shaped links for comfort on the wrist, the dial with enhanced legibility, and blue hands that add an accent, all create a relaxed feel making it perfect for everyday use.
The hand-wound calibre F8B61 is not only highly precise with accuracy of +15 to -5 seconds a day, but it is also equipped with a silicon escape wheel made with the latest MEMS processing technology, extending the power reserve to 70 hours and significantly enhancing its practicality. Price: £2,759.99.
