Default Orient Star YFH03002M - Retro Future Motorcycle

I really love my Orient Star. I bought it a few years ago when I was working in Japan.
It is very accurate and eye catching.

Sure can John,

What attracted me to this watch was the inspiration behind it. The design team at Orient Star a few years ago wanted to capture some of those retro artifacts from our past that we were so fond of... cars, cameras and motorcycles. This model is based on a vintage (British or Italian) motorcycle. One has to use their imagination to create the connection in one's mind's eye. To me it has the essence of a vintage mechanical object... the body may remind one of a piston, the section where the Orient Star name is located to me resembles the motorcycle gas tank, the white lower part could be the lower down-frame of the bike. Just use your imagination That is what the designers try to do... not recreate the actual object but recreate it symbolically or metaphorically.

And here are some of the basic tech specs:
  • Men / Women:Men
    Power Reserve:40-Hour Power Reserve Indicator
    Crystal:Mineral
    Movement:Orient Caliber 46S50
    Claspouble Push Button
    Crown:Screwed-down
    Water Resistance:100m
    Case Material:Stainless Steel
    Case Diameter:44mm
    Case Thickness:12mm
    Dial Color:Orange
    Bezel Material:Stainless Steel
    Bezel Function:Stationary
    Band Material:Stainless Steel
    Band Length:22mm
    Warranty Type:1 Year Orient Watch USA Warranty
