Orient Star Retro-Future Bicycle Watch

Orient Place Blog's 2nd Anniversary

birthday, blog! You're now two years old. Another year has passed. And while
these are indeed complicated times we live in, Coronavirus and all, there are
enough good things we can look back on – and look forward to.

what has happened since we celebrated our first
? First, some numbers… we've had more than 80,000 visits
on the blog's second year, more than triple the traffic we had on the first
year. That's fantastic and I thank all the blog's followers who keep coming
back, commenting, sharing, liking – or just reading quietly which is just as

was certainly no shortage of news and topics to write about, with more than 40
blog posts (almost once a week) published. Shortly after the first anniversary,
we began reviewing new Orient models, many of which thanks to Orient Europe
supplying us with the goodies. This proved to be some of the blog's most
popular content, with the review
of the Kamasu
maintaining its status as our most-read hands-on
review. However, the first place in the popularity contest goes to the
announcement of the Orient
Star Divers

Place Blog is also accompanied by an Instagram account (though
it is not 100% dedicated to Orient or watches. But that's part of what makes
an IG account interesting, isn't it…). You are most welcome to follow it if
you're not doing so already! Here's a little collage that was posted earlier
this year, a look back at some of our 2019 Instagram photos.

of course, the big theme of this year for Orient is the brand's 70th
anniversary. We've seen some cool releases take place under this theme, such as
the re-issue of the King
Diver and the Retro-future Camera
. While new releases are currently
taking a short break, we're probably going to see more new stuff later in 2020.

next? Still no shortage of content in sight! We'll be reviewing new and old
watches, discuss more topics from the brand's history, and keep you updated
with any new models and announcements. Is there anything else you would like to
see on the blog? Any particular models or topics you think the blog should
cover, or perhaps – any content of your own you wish to share with us? Your
feedback would be highly appreciated, so keep commenting, here or on our Facebook
page, and keep following Orient Place blog!
