Incredible that they have no way to date by serial number. They have to keep a database somewhere. Maybe its simply not worth their time (pardon the unintentional pun).

850champion have you tried Dr. Roland Ranftt's excellent movement archives? I saw the following Orient movements there. Maybe you can compare what you have with the pictures there.

Serial numbers of Orient's newer models read like Seiko

Orient 3 Star

I have a Orient *** Crystal with the following data on the case back :-
EA 469LD5-72 CA
According to the catalogues I've checked the first letters of the series is the movement code.
I see everything from EJ to EZ but no EA.
Am I missing something obvious?
Would appreciate some advice to try and date & value this watch.
Many thanks.
