A rare Orient

Very possibly, this is the first time you're seeing this watch, since it's a Brazilian market watch and was discontinued a few years ago. Besides that, this was a SE model, and only 29 (!!) were made O0 .

This is the RM1, a commemorative edition of the Brazilian Relógios Mecânicos forum (FRM). Just like the RM2, the FRM's members chose a model out of Orient Brazil's catalog and the watch was personalized. Only 29 were produced, and each one had a special dial and case back - mine is #05.

The movement is Orient's in-house 46943 with 21 jewels, and the case is water resistant up to 50 m.

The crystal is mineral glass and the tonneau case measures 36 x 39,6 mm, and is only 12,3 mm high. The strap is leather, with a deployant clasp, with the company logo engraved on the buckle.

Ever since I joined FRM I was after this watch, specially because I had the RM2. The project was created before I joined the forum in 2007, so the only way to get one would be if some of the older members decided to sell theirs. Fortunately for me, last week one of the 29 original owners decided to sell his, and now I have both.
