In the world of horology, few names command the respect and admiration that Orient does. For decades, the brand has been synonymous with exquisite craftsmanship and timeless design. With the recent launch of their new Classic and Simple Style models, Orient once again proves why they are leaders in the industry.
Orient’s New Classic and Simple Style Features the Sun and Moon
The Classic and Simple Style series, a perennial bestseller globally, epitomizes the essence of Orient. Its hallmark features – a classical dial, domed retro glass, and slender lugs on the case – have earned it a devoted following. Now, with the addition of four new models, Orient elevates this collection to even greater heights.
The crowning jewel of these models is the captivating day and night display featuring a sun and moon design. The gentle rotation of the sun and moon disk every 24 hours adds a poetic touch to the watch face. The celestial dance at 4 O’clock, against the day hand at 10 O’clock, creates enchanting asymmetry on the watch face. Meanwhile, the dial’s three-layered design with Roman numerals and bar indices, along with the dual minute scale, exudes refined elegance.
These new models come in four enchanting variations, each capturing the ethereal beauty of the sun and moon at different times of the day. From the warm, early morning glow on the refined ivory dial, to the brilliant noon light on the white dial, Orient masterfully paints moments in time. The white dial model with rose gold-plated case evokes the sun’s lingering afterglow, while the brown dial pays homage to the mystique of the night sky. Each dial is harmoniously matched with a calf leather strap, elevating the elegance of every model.
These timepieces are powered by the in-house calibre F6B24 with features like time, calendar, and day and night display. Boasting an impressive accuracy of +25 to -15 seconds per day and a robust 40-hour power reserve, these timepieces are as reliable as they are beautiful.
38 Models in Calm, Gentle Hues
The Classic and Simple Style 38 collection, a recent addition in 2022, has quickly earned its place in the hearts of watch aficionados. With a comfortable 38.4-mm case, it strikes the perfect balance between style and wearability. The latest iterations, limited to just 360 pieces each, introduce a stunning array of subdued hues, from creamy yellow to dove grey.
The sunray finishing and matte coating impart a unique warmth and composure to the watch. Paired with grey nubuck straps, these models exude a sense of understated luxury. The uncluttered dial, featuring three hands and a date indicator, is a testament to the brand’s commitment to simplicity and functionality.
Powered by the automatic in-house caliber F6724 keeps time with precision, offering an accuracy range of +25 to -15 seconds per day. With a 40-hour power reserve, these models are more than just aesthetically pleasing; they are reliable companions for every occasion.
Timeless Elegance for Every Wrist
Orient’s latest additions to the Classic and Simple Style series and the Classic and Simple Style 38 collection are a celebration of the brand’s rich heritage and forward-thinking design. With their impeccable craftsmanship and innovative features, these timepieces are destined to become modern classics.
