This is the 60th Anniversary Limited Edition 1500 pieces world wide (300 of those for Japan) (Available in gold finish too)

It arrived in a very nice wooden box.

This watch uses the 1950's Orient Logo and font on both the dial and case back. Same font as used on the Orient Fineness Ultramatic.

You can see the Orient Fineness Ultramatic here...

The watch is "all dial" so it looks quite large on the wrist. The dial has a slightly iridescent satin like finish, polished hands and indexes and a signed crown. The power reserve feature gives the watch interest.

Beautiful !

Beautiful watch and it really has that classic (and classy) Orient looks. Another thing I like about it is that it seems quite thin, probably because of the savings in space by being hand wind only.
Congratulations!

Congratulations, mate! That's a special piece.

I think Orient executed this very well. Nice script on the dial. Hand winder too. Yet the power reserve and the larger size gives it a contemporary feel. Very nice.

As I told you over at the Orient forum, that is maybe the most elegant of all the Oriental watches I ever saw!

I like it a lot. Reminds me of a Seiko SARB031 with power reserve indicator.


Would I pick this over a SARB031? Not sure.....

Lovely watch. I must get one when they start turning up second hand (pun intended). One interesting fact is that, while Orient is nowadays identified with power reserve watches, they did not add this until the 90s.

^-^

I received my Orient 60th Anni yesterday. Totally blown off and satisfied by the quality and finish :-\

Nathan has done a fine photo narrative of the watch so I won't add on. Just to share one frontal view:



Another detail I notice of the 60th anni piece, the curved minute and second hand. The curvature is following the curved glass, and tipping down towards the markers. I thought it is a fine detailing as I did read somewhere about GS handwinder piece having similar feature? ???


overall a fantastic piece ;) whatever tone you are gettin, be it the steel or the gold, i am sure it is a lot of watch for the money! O0
