to confirm this part are the same.

Seiko 7S26/7S36 Balance + Cock Assembly:



And this part below is from Orient Triton. I know that Orient watch used to part of Seiko and certain parts are crossed reference. Does this look the same?

Just be careful to make sure that the one you get is a version match to the one in your watch. The 7sx6 series has three versions of which only the A and B ones are interchangeable. I suspect that the same will go for Orient parts.
What you have shown could be either B or C versions which are not compatible. Figure out the production date of your watch and that may give you a clue to which version will work. The Seiko B versions were used from 2006 thru 2012. After that it is the C version. Orient likely follows that time line.

I thought you already had it.
If you have to buy the part - buy the correct Seiko one.
You'll find it easier / cheaper to buy a parts watch with good balance or even a new movement than trying to buy just the balance / cock and have someone pack it correctly.

Thanks for your advices sir. After doing some digging online i found out that the balance completed are interchangeable between the NH35/NH36 and 40N5A.
I found one that eBay seller from Netherlands sale the part but I am not sure if a Chinese counterfeit.

Thanks for the information and advices. I think the balance completed from the NH35/36 will fit because I just found out someone in here installed on his orient m-force (40N5A).
