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.

Dating a vintage Orient is notoriously difficult. Numerous approaches have been made directly to Orient and the following is a reply received from Orient (with spelling mistakes as received):

"Dear Mr . Steve
Thank you for your e-mail.
Unfortunaltely , you can not distinguish date of manufacture by serial number.


Thank you for your inquiry.

Serial numbers of Orient's newer models read like Seiko​
