Evergreen Orients - Part 2/2

This is the final dose of my mini two-part series on Evergreen Orients.
If you notice carefully the hologram sticker on the NOS caseback, it shows a crown with the word "ORIENT" beneath. New Orients come with the standard Orient hologram sticker that bears the ORIENT logo.

ORIENT Day-Date Jubilee (NOS)

Caliber 469 Twenty-One Jewels
Zirconia stones as index markers

This unique NOS Orient has "diamond-like" bits, which are in fact Zirconia, as indices. Push button at 2 o'clock sets the Day.

ORIENT 3-Star Automatic
Caliber 469 Twenty-One Jewels
English/Kanji Day wheel

This Orient has a unique blue-dusted dial. The Day wheel is in English and Japanese Kanji, which is never seen on my other Orients.


Caliber 469 Twenty-One Jewels
Straight hidden lugs with rice beads-like flat bracelet

I purchased this Orient as I found the yellow-gold dial very vintage in flavour. The case design is different from my other Orients (except for the gold Multi-Year Calendar) with flat hidden lugs.

The rice beads-like bracelet adds to the aged look of this Orient!
