Orient Star Retro-Future Bicycle Watch

More New Releases By Orient

yesterday's announcement of the new M-Force
and Sun
& Moon
watches, here's a brief overview of some of Orient's other
recent announcements – most (but not all) of which are new color schemes and
variations of existing models.

Contemporary Semi-Skeleton Orient Star

up, we get three new references in Orient Star's Contemporary semi-skeleton
watch family. Ref. RK-AT0009N, RK-AT0010A, and RK-AT0011A, feature grey, brown,
and blue dials, respectively – the latter two being in "butterfly
shell" as the translation from Japanese goes (presumably, this is like
Mother of Pearl).

MOP dials are often associated with ladies' watches, the darker shades and the
style of the 39.3mm wide case put these on the "men's watches" shelf
(although, obviously, all watches are unisex by nature and anyone can wear

Moving Blue

have already released several
under the "moving blue" tagline last year – and now, here
are a few more. And why not, as this seems to be a worthy collection and a very
attractive dial color.

new blue collection features four different models, all of which are no-date,
open heart models: these are the contemporary "modern skeleton", the contemporary
semi-skeleton, the classic semi-skeleton, and – the only completely new design
in this collection – a ladies' semi-skeleton, quite different from the current
ladies' open heart models.

of the models comes in two distinct references, one being the global version –
and the other being a limited Prestige Shop model. The only difference seems to
be the extra leather band provided with the Prestige Shop models, despite
costing the same.

"IO" Solar Ladies' Watches

but not least, Orient have presented five new variants of their solar-powered
"IO" branded watches for women. The differences are subtle, and these
are all light-colored dials, elegantly designed, 27.6mm wide watches, costing
around 200 USD.
