Caliber 48N40 Twenty one jewels
No. 1190 of 1500
In conjunction with Orient 60th Anniversary, Orient released this limited edition of 1500 pieces (300 in Japan). The watch came in a heavy solid wooden box with velvet interior, a very impressive presentation.
The power reserve gauge moves in incremental as I wind the watch. The cursive fonts on the dial adds to the vintage flavor, steel hands and markers, no lume application.
The caseback is etched the limited edition number, all in cursive font. It looks as though the owner has engraved the words himself to commemorate a certain anniversary day or such. The leather strap is of shiny croc finish and marked Orient on the inside.
The buckle is signed in a consistent fashion as well.
The crystal is mineral glass and of raised dome shaped. Note the equisite touch given to the hands as they curved downwards towards the markers, similar to that of Grand Seiko.
