FS: Orient HA Hiace 21 Jewel Automatic Y489105-SA - $50 OBO

For sale is this unique and funky 70s Orient. It features:

- Screw down crown
- Day and Date
- Luminescent plastic chapter ring
- Luminescent marker dots and hands
- Unique attractive original bracelet
- HA 21 jewel movement
- Faceted crystal

I've seen listings on other sites call this series "Hiace". The movement is clean (see photos). It's hard to see in the photos, but the crystal is faceted, and the facets match the facets on the case. The case and crystal are pretty scratched up. There are some chips in the crystal between 4:00 and 5:00 and some smaller chips between 6:00 and 7:00. If you could polish the crystal, it would look great, but I don't know if it's possible to polish a faceted crystal.
The dial, hands, chapter ring and movement look very clean. The chapter ring is slightly misaligned.

The bracelet measures 7.25", which fits my adult wrist, but probably won't fit larger wrists without and extension.

I timed it for an hour, and it was accurate to the second. I can't guarantee any performance on a longer test though. Service history is unknown.

Case width: 38mm
Lug-to-lug: 41.2mm
Crystal: 27.5mm
Lug width: 18mm

$50 OBO. Since I can't find any comps on this one, I don't know what it's worth. I want it to go to a forum member, so send me your best offer, and if no one offers $100, I'll sell it to the best offer after 10 days or so.
