WATCH GIVEAWAY: Orient Star Contemporary Semi Skeleton

WATCH GIVEAWAY: Orient Star Contemporary Semi Skeleton Giveaways

A new month has begun, and as always that means the beginning of a new giveaway here on aBlogtoWatch. For February 2020, we’re offering up an Orient Star Contemporary Semi Skeleton watch. Part of Orient’s premium Orient Star line, the Contemporary Semi Skeleton combines classically handsome design with an in-house movement and specifications that punch far above its price range.

The simple, masculine lines of the 39.3mm stainless steel case offer a clean backdrop to the artisanship within. A sapphire crystal and 100 meters of water resistance ensure a solidly modern level of performance, while a broad display window showcases the manufacture automatic movement at work.

A deep navy blue sunburst dial provides the backdrop for a blend of classical dress watch elements with tasteful complications. The tapering 50-hour power-reserve indicator at 12 o’clock shows the current state of the mainspring at a glance, while at 9 o’clock, an open heart window allows the wearer to observe the moving balance wheel. This moving golden highlight is complemented further by gold accents on the second hand and the oversized Roman numerals at 12 o’clock.

Inside the Orient Star Contemporary Semi Skeleton is the in-house caliber F6R42 automatic movement, offering hacking, 50 hours of power reserve, and a 21,600 bph beat rate.

Orient Star offers the Contemporary Semi Skeleton on a navy alligator pattern strap to match the rich tones of the dial, finished with a signed deployant clasp. The watch currently retails for $608 USD.

  • What fresh hell is this?

    I’d like to see high(er) beat movements

  • Dominik Rocchi

    I´d like to see a futuristic / concept kind of watch – just breaking the rules and showing what they are technically capable of 🙂

  • LapYoda

    I would like to see a couple things from Orient. First, a logo that looks more contemporary than their current offerings, since this seems a complaint that mars the aesthetics of their watches. 2) I want an automatic or hand-wound chronograph that wouldn’t look out of place among Speedmasters or Daytonas – 40-42mm, great finishing, high quality cases, dials, and hands.

  • Kevin Peterson

    a square watch. i want to see more squares.

  • Phlip74

    Oh how I love an Orient watch, I wear my Mako XL almost everyday. I would love to see them work on a very complex complication using the Orient star as or the Bambino as the base! I see great things from this company and cant wait to see more. Some are probably gonna think I’m crazy but maybe a tourbillon from Orient, i know it would be spectacular!

  • erfly7

    Always loved Orient, would love an affordable mechanical chrono

  • Pete L

    Maybe a reboot of the compression diver? Always liked it but lug length a stretch for such an already large piece.

  • EOS

    Id like to see their logo updated , perhaps by dropping the icon, or the word “Orient” to provide a cleaner looking dial. I’d also be keen to see a salmon dial dress watch perhaps in a style similar to the bambino/Maestro +- a bracelet, or even something totally different for them like something hexagonal ?

  • Brandon Macy

    Good looking watch, thanks for the chance! I’d love to see them continue to use sapphire crystal over hardlex.

  • Kevin Peterson

    I would like to see a square watch.

  • I think their designs are quite safe. It would be nice to see them play with shape and colour more.

  • Daniel D.

    As a owner of a Orient, I am with others, lets get the logo updated.

  • I’d like them to make a field watch

  • TresGut

    Nice. Would love a sub seconds version of this.

  • Amol Vadvane

    It’s a beautiful timepiece, I love when watches have the power reserve indicator. They should try to come up with some we’ll designed robust Chronographs.

  • David Humphrey

    A pilot’s watch would be great!

  • Alec Barrett

    Orient has really been doing good things lately, what I’d really like is for them to do watches in their Star series that are more outgoing than their Bambino, something akin to Seiko’s Cocktail Time series. Other than that, a more markedly modern diver, their Mako and Triton and etc are quality but lack that little bit extra something.

  • Mike O’Connor

    I think a brand like Orient should have diversity in their offerings but need to stay as far away as possible from having any watch that “looks like a…” description being a possibility.

  • Brett Lintvelt

    Would like to see a dual time tool watch from this often underrated brand.

  • Pete Yo

    I would like to see a moonphase watch from them. Maybe with a nice dial and applied indexes.

  • sam-b

    I’d like to see an Orient Star watch with a two-tone dial. Dark green sunburst in the center, surrounded by glossy black. No numerals – neither roman nor arabic – no power-reserve indicator, no open heart window…
    That would be awesome!

  • Ganymedus

    Would love to see a thinline, or a Bambino Small Seconds without a date window. ?

  • Mark Great

    I would like to see either a completely new affordable dive watch or an update to the existing Kamasu with specs that match those offered by many microbrands at the same price point – most notably an improved bracelet would be nice.

  • Eugene Velednitsky

    I wouldn’t mind seeing a mechanical Chrono from Orient. Also, would be great to see them put their 4 hand GMT movement to work in a diver style mechanical GMT. That seems a niche that is unfortunately not filled by any Japanese brand.

  • Jody Colero

    I’d love to see a full Skelton from Orient, and I’m seriously into bronze lately for some strange reason, and think they might do something interesting with that.
    A full skeleton with a bronze housing!

  • I’d like to see an auto racing inspired chronograph. Thanks for the opportunity!

  • Steve Bowden

    What I would like to see next from Orient is a change in their logo. And maybe even the name of the brand as well. The pseudo-coat of arms looks fake to me. Thanks to ABTW and Orient for holding this contest.

  • Rhino67

    Would like to see an Orient Star Outdoor silver case with green face. Would like to see minimum 60 hours of power reserve.

  • Kris A.

    I would love to see a super thin version of this watch that’s lightweight on the wrist.

  • Nicolaj Nissen

    I’d like to see a manual wind dress watch that’s clean and nice, without any open heart elements.
    I’d also like to see a redesign of the logo, their logo unfortunately looks awful.

  • Amit Bitton

    I’d like to see a moonphase or a bambino with sapphire ctystal. The nicest thing to do as well is to update their logo to a more minimal one

  • Maxtor

    I’d like to see something automatic with a nod to their heritage in a 40mm dress watch design.

  • Kevin Tang

    I’d love to see the Bambino with an even more minimalist/subdued dial, but keep the domed crystal.

  • Tim Tim

    I would love to see Orient has individual names for high and low end watches. The price of Orient watches are vast different. Instead of naming Orient or Orient Star, I hoped Orient Star will have a unique name separately. Lastly, I hoped the current Orient brand logo can be simplified. The crest of Orient can be replaced with just a Orient wordings for neatness on the dial. Thanks ?

  • Norman

    I’d like to see a automatic GMT Pilot watch with Diver’s lume, Sapphire front and back, and at least 100m water resist.

  • Al Smith

    Always wanted one of those watches with automatic movement.

  • Gord Hay

    A square face would be cool!

  • myroslava

    I would love to see a clean, uncluttered watch with stick markers, a date, and a case that is 37-38mm.

  • Sigmund Globes

    I hope Orient produce more watch like their 2nd Generation Bambino Version 2. The roman numerals, bezel, and logo work well together on those.

  • equinoctialgale

    I’d like to see the brand release more pocket watches. Ideally lightweight and with a matte finish. I really considered buying the WV0031DD, but felt it was too glossy.

  • Molli Vandehey

    i would like to see a greater color and design array. more choices!

  • Ben from LI

    I’d like to see more Bambino series watches. I’ve enjoyed those for as long as I’ve seen them.

  • Good Life Project

    Love this fantastic timepiece. I would Love to be chosen to receive this and proudly display it.

  • Kenneth Barnhart

    I’d like to see a smaller classical GMT version. The Orient Star (RE-AV0002S) is also very nice for the price point.

  • Vonralpho

    Great looking watch! I have one Orient Star and several Bambinos. Love ‘em all. This one would look great in the collection. I’d like to see Orient do something in a rugged field watch.

  • Brian Kautz

    Dual time or GMT versions

  • esma3el

    Orient has been always my favorite watch brand, while the old and vintage one are my thing, the recent generations is no different. It has many aesthetics and features that I desire to be in my watch, their unique styling and good quality are what any watch lover could ask for. My hope that they will remake some of their old wild and bold models!

  • KosAndris

    I think this orient is a beutyful watch….

  • agzand

    I have a Bambino small seconds and for the price it is hard to beat. As a matter of fact I use it as my black tie watch, because my other watches are too sporty.

  • Ah Shumaker

    I have a Mako. It is the least expensive watch I own, but possibly the toughest. I’d like a GMT.

  • alexe christian

    Slim diver

  • grandma 1

    i love these watches. it would be a great gift to my husband. we are celebrating our 39th wedding anniversary. perfect watch for a great guy.

  • NaJo

    I would like to see a classic orient bambino with inhouse gmt complication.

  • Quapp Wolke

    Beautiful without being overly fancy. Suits my day to day activities between office, leisure, outdoors, home in a wonderful way. I like the day to day practicality as well as some witty sprinkle in the design.

  • Jonny Bravo

    I’d like to see an Orient Star version of the Bambino. Using a higher quality movement and case would be interesting. Plus that I don’t really like the Orient logo.

  • Sipemon

    I’d like to see bronze versions

  • Iftach Landau

    Orient Star are a really cool company. They have some really nice and innovative selections.
    I only wish they offered larger sizes as well, to better suit my wrist

  • mauro tovoli

    very stylish…

  • Ally

    Would like to to see Orient Classic Bambino with a GMT complication

  • Dupont

    I would like to see a re-designed logo.

  • pawel debik

    I don’t have any Orients yet. They all look so… safe. This skeleton is nice though. They should do more unusual designs in the future.

  • Laurens

    Perpetual calendar with moonphase!

  • Giovanni

    It is a nice looking watch, unfortunately a little small for my liking @ 40mm .

  • A G

    Would be great to see some further, modern development of Orient watches with unique eternal calendar complication.

  • Had my Orient watch stolen its time to replace it

  • Eran Reuveni

    No one mentioned the OSD yet? So yes, I (and many) would like a new Saturation Diver with F6 movement; maybe just ever so slightly smaller than the old one. And, also, if not Royal Orient, how about just a “Orient Star Royal”?

  • D.C.

    I would love to see an understated dive watch in titanium on bracelet.

  • Seth L

    An oversized moonphase complication on a dress watch would be a great addition.

  • Emre Bülbül

    I would really like to see a bronze version, maybe with a GMT complicatian.

  • Why not try their hands at a Tourbillon? For prestige’s sake.

  • lajoes

    Another great looking everyday causal wear watch from Orient! I have a couple of their watches and find them to be very reliable brand.

  • Mike V

    I would like to see more chronographs. Seiko and Citizen have so many – Orient needs to broaden their offerings.

  • Christina Jensen

    I’d like to see more variety of colors

  • Mark Krebs

    Great looking watch! How about a chrono.

  • Erie Quintanilla

    A classic style in this age of monster sized clocks at wrist (can’t call them watches by the way)

  • Calvin F.

    Would like to see a lunar related watch, or maybe a diver one.

  • Ramon Abreu

    The open heart and power meter were well executed

  • ??????? ?.

    Smartwatch with that amazing classic style of Orient ?

  • Jeff Addison

    I love my Orient, the power reserve turns out to be very useful. I would like to see a moonphase

  • mtnsicl

    Perpetual calendar!

  • Serban Chelebet

    I would like to see an Orient Star diver smaller than 44mm
    My email is [email protected]
    Goodluck to all!

  • nickie burke

    A square watch

  • Harold

    Very nice watch! I would be interested in seeing a luminous divers watch from Orient.

  • Joe Burba

    i’d like to see a smaller watch with more functions my email is [email protected]

  • ManuelMV

    Nice watch! I would like to see a new Mexican!

  • Daniel Yucht

    Beautiful watch with a great classic look. [email protected]

  • Diana Shenderovich

    really beautiful watch.will be a good present for my husband on our 03/22/20 34 anniversary

  • Tony Platz

    A divers warhch

    • Playboy Johnny – Team Mariu$

      Yes… a divers warhch

  • Chris MacEwen

    I like the compact simplicity of this watch design . I think this model would be more elegant with numbers instead of Roman numerals , but I don’t think the watch face needs to be cluttered up with extraneous features. That misses the point of the design. The only thing I might vary is the choice of base material. Titanium or Sterling(especially the strap) would be more aesthetically pleasing.

  • Stephen Fowler

    Beautiful watch. I’m always amazed at how much watch you get for the money with the Orient watches.

  • Dickson Chen

    Beautiful watch on Citizen’s new type, and the brand is one of my royal type of brand I have worn since I was a child for more than 40 years. I will contiune to explore this beatiful brand and would be a great pleasure to receive such a good present.

  • A. Ghafran

    Smaller and clean-looking chrono

  • Maryna Jedrzejak

    Very interesting watch!!!!!!

  • Tapher

    I love my Polaris GMT. I’d love to see them expand this line.

    A beautiful tourbillon watch

  • skaapsker

    I would really like to see a modern diver with a GMT complication.

  • marina

    Beautiful watch

  • Gal Sh

    I would like to see more clean dress watches

  • Ionesi Victor

    Something slim and elegant

  • Ramon Costa

    Open hearts are awesome pieces

  • Benny Nem

    Love Orient Star!! My dad used to have a very cool square orient in the 80s, wish they reissued it, I would buy it for him as a gift.

  • Auto Correct

    Id like to see Orient clean up the dial on the Pro Saturation Diver. In particular remove the power reserve. I also find the design of the bracelet to case integration to be an afterthought.

  • Benedetto Youssef

    I would love to see Orient’s release a vintage inspired diver. 38-40mm, Sapphire crystal, nice leather strap options.

  • Humphrey Mar

    I like having a date window, and I prefer arabic numbers over roman numerals. I love the blue band and blue face, but can the blue face also be solar powered?

  • BrandonS

    Give us a B-Uhr next!

  • Zach Brown

    Great giveaway! I love Orient and the Orient Star line has been one I have had my eye on for awhile. I would love to see some larger case sizes in the Orient Star line for those of us that skew toward larger watches. I would also like to see Orient deliver some vintage diver pieces.

  • A smartwatch.

  • NASAVandy

    Dual/GMT with a date window.

  • Ankur Vaidya

    Would love to see a more classic chrono of with this style from them!

  • Don Ball

    I would prefer just a standard appearance and less ‘bells & whistles’.

  • Saundra204

    How about more color combinations? Love Orient

  • spotpuff

    More art dials with unique art.

  • I would love to see anything blue or some wicked black panther designs or cheetas.

  • J-Dec

    What a beauty! It would perfect on my wrist. 🙂

  • Sfo Sfo

    my first two auto were Orient!!
    – hopping they propose diver/sport watch without day/date
    – waiting GMT with dedicated subdial

  • Al Herrera

    GMT or more chrono’s.

  • David Daniel Trevino

    The recently released divers were a great start, but I’d love Orient Star to expand on their sports watch offerings to more directly compete with some of the higher end Seiko sports pieces.

  • Yaakov List

    Beautiful watch. I’d like to see a small seconds dress watch with no date window.

  • Eric Thompson

    I love the ORIENT brand. I was actually introduced to this brand through A BLOG TO WATCH. Since then, I’ve purchased 4 watches that I absolutely love and keep in my weekly rotation. You can’t beat the quality for the price point. I don’t have an ORIENT STAR. Would love to add this to my collection. Good luck everyone.

  • Randy Bradford

    I like automatic mechanical watches. A lot! The Orient watch would look very nice in my collection and on my arm!

  • Martin Chiu

    I would love to see a sporty GMT watch as the Polaris is on the dreary side.

  • Adrian Choo Cheng Yong

    Orients are definitely THE major brand to offer value for money now and this is no exception. What I would truly like to see is Orient flexing their muscles and coming up with something that showcases their watchmaking capabilities. Something along the lines of a minute repeater. 😀

  • bryan a

    I’d like to see something contemporary from Orient next. Smaller than 40mm diameter, lower profile insignia.

  • Dickson

    orient bambino open heart next

  • Brian Russell

    It would be nice to see a GMT diver or pilot

  • Tickle Man

    How about a better quality finish to their brush finishes?

  • Nick Andrew

    agree with @disqus_K5QSrCugdE:disqus orient bambino open heart next..!

  • Dobrin Tomov

    a chrono

  • Fearless_fx

    I love my orient bambino… so maybe a new version of the bambino? 🙂

  • Would like a GMT diver from Orient.

  • Axel Dyll

    Hey. I’d love a review of the 36mm Mechanical classic !

  • Damian

    New bambino with flat crystal and normal sized lugs. Make it a chrono

  • Ian Sheh

    An Orient in my collection would be great!

  • Patrick Podeyn

    A GMT diver would be awesome to see or the maestro make a comeback.

  • arthur gusowski

    i would like to see them make a modern version of the annual calendar watches they had in the 70s . i own a 1971 model and would love to have a modern version with a cleaner of the dial design. Or maybe a ray 2 diver with a saphire crystal (scratched mine like crazy) and a ceramic bezel.

  • Alex P

    Anti-reflective coating on the crystal sapphire – a clear display of the dial adds so much depth to the watch and makes it look much more expensive than it is – and most importantly, it’s easier to read the time from every viewing angle.

  • Danijel Tojagic

    Perhaps digital, lcd etc. But I like this one.

  • James McDonald

    I would love to see an automatic or manual wind panda chronograph, also just wanted to say I love the 70’s retro looks I have a couple. bring more, faceted crystals get me excited

  • all74

    I’ve always had a soft spot for OS; they do fantastic work for the price. The dial on this one is lovely, though I’d prefer it without the Roman numerals. I’d really love to see more manual wind options in the future

  • John townsend

    I have always loved orients there a well made affordable timepiece. There style and name are timeless. I have three of them in my collection.

  • Nate White

    What I’d like to see? No brainer, and Orient, you know I’m right: rerelease of the best bang-for-the-buck dive watch on the planet, the OS300, but this time is upgrade time. Keep the same size, look, and specs, but make it Titanium with a hardened surface, ceramic bezel (or carry on with the former ceramic coated insert that was indeed pretty durable), and of course a white dial version because that’s the goat version. If you build it, we will come….

  • Nice one, would like it a little smaller with a GMT wheel….

  • KS

    enamel dial with moonphase!!

  • Nick

    I would love to see some kind of nice rugged explorer watch possibly with dual time zones.

  • Trevor O’Donnell

    I would love to see a enamel dial dial aswell as a black dial version of this

  • pat flicker

    Moonphase would be nice.

  • NR13

    I wouldn’t mind winning this!

  • Nixa

    40/41mm panda automatic chronograph

  • ijg projects

    I will make it easy, just ship it directly to me….No hard decisions to make!!!!! lol

  • Jonoman

    That is a nice little dress watch I’m about to win.

  • Ozgun Can Ozgunes

    Textured and colored dial dress watch, upmarket quality.

  • Andrei Mihaila

    I would really, really want to see a Bambino in 36-38mm. I mean it. Great watch, bad size, even though I have one and I wear it regularly. And without date.

  • Chris Martin

    An Orient dive watch would be cool.

  • moss1310

    The Orient Star lune is awesome. Really puts the heat on Seiko

  • Douglas Weedman

    Nice looking watch. How about a cushion case diver or sports watch Orient? 44mm?

    • Sheez Gagoo

      Why don’t sou get a Turtle?

  • Robert Ritchie

    Dive watch.

  • Sheez Gagoo

    Best giveaway ever.

  • Peter N

    I’d like to see a nice field watch.

  • Sharif Rafiev

    Having already an Orient Star Retrograde, absolutely beautiful watch. This one is a good continuation of Stars’ Collection.

  • Daniel

    Would love to see Orient Star bring back some chronograph models! (Preferably without a tachymeter, and maybe with a handwound movement for slimness.)
    Also, bring on a new logo! I’ve always thought Orient Star’s logo leaves a bit to be desired, I actually prefer Orient’s!

    • watchshonrun

      I agree about the chronograph. That would be pretty cool.

  • Michael Bell

    I’d like to see an alarm watch.

  • gchahinian

    I’d love to see a couple of nice classic style chronographs from them!

  • Artin Aladadyan

    Would love to see an Orient Star with a full skeletonized face.

  • b007007b

    This watch looks really cool. I would like to see them bring out more watches in this style

  • wavefunccollapse

    This is a beautiful timepiece. I like the brand a lot and would love to see a world timer with a GMT hand.

  • WitnessMan

    This is amazing! This watch is absolutely gorgeous. Thank you for offering this giveaway.

  • Milos

    I’d like to see octagonal case watch from my favorite brand.

  • Andrew Chan

    I’d love to see a sports watch from them.

  • watchshonrun

    Orient was my first automatic watch purchase when I first started collecting watches. I was attracted to their value, independence and commitment to the automatic movement. I own two Orients now as well as several other brands, but still enjoy putting on my first automatic watch from time to time. The Orient Star pictured in this giveaway is simply stunning. The combination of gold and silver markers against the blue dial is an eye catching combination. It would make a great conversation starter in many settings and give the owner a great deal of pleasure to wear for sure.

  • WebDevDorothy

    First…beautiful watch!
    Tnen…I would like to see their recommendation for a woman’s watch or at least their best pick on a unisex watch.

  • Cambridge Grey

    Outstanding! I would like to see it in different colors, especially brown/tan face/wrist band

  • Reuben Trudgett

    Wouldn’t mind seeing what Orient would be able to do with a full skeleton or even giving a crack at making some other models semi skeleton

  • G Pate

    I have always liked Orient watches, especially the Three Star models.

  • fbotond

    Nice looks overall, I’d like to see this watch with az integrated bracelet instead ot the “alligator pattern” strap.

  • Chrostopher Rees

    I would like to see a full skeleton version With a luxurious titanium case and strap

  • GriffithH

    An Orient Star diver with more classic than contemporary styling would be interesting.

  • Dan

    Very nice and would like to see full skeleton version and stainless steel band

  • Steve Jacobs

    What I’d like for Orient to have some exposes in stores. I’ve never seen one ‘in the flesh.’ They look great on the website, especially the dive watches.

  • Jovan Rajkovic

    I love the Orient manufacture, incredible quality for the price range. It’s slowly but steadily growing on the US market.

  • Ryan Jackson

    I’d love to see a Ti diver with a Ti oxynitride bezel!

  • Marc-Alexandre Nolin

    Could they do a full skeleton one?

  • ramb?y

    i remember my dad has seiko and orient, now i would like to have Orient and give him Orient or Seiko as a gift.

  • Hrvoje Holett Hadzic

    I like the design of contemporary orient star collection. I have similar watches. Especially the bigger ones.
    Too bad that the smaller ones (below 39) don’t have all the features of their bigger models…

  • SeanM

    A full skeleton watch would be nice to see from Orient

  • Mark Nagy

    Orient Star has always seemed to have a faithful, but perhaps meager following in the US. Personally, I’ve never seen one on a wrist or in a store. I think that is a bit unusual given the price point they are in. I like that they have sub 40mm offerings. I like their dressier offerings, but it would be nice if their presence in American shops was a bit more noticeable. I would like to see them expand their market presence in the US next.

  • sav yo

    Orient Star should have some more multi function time pieces in their collection ..
    Cool giveaway .. thanks ..

  • Ari Politi

    How about a world-time watch from Orient Star?
    Thanks for the giveaway…

  • Eric Durkee

    Looks like a clean design, and great power reserve, especially at that price point.

  • Robin

    A gmt Pepsi, would be nice.

  • Tim Jervis

    World timer would be fab

  • Haraldur Franklín

    This Orient Star would be perfect for my Orient collection. Beauty

  • Sean

    I have a Polaris GMT that’s one of my favorites. I love the feature set. My only issue is it’s kinda TOO dressy for an everyday watch. Plus I hate having to take it off every time I’m going to be doing something physical, in case I scratch it. Something similar, but more of a “tool” watch would be great. Maybe even – *gasp* quartz?

  • Phlip74

    I am a hige Orient fan and would love to see them make a really cool pilot watch next. I wear my Orient Mako XL with green bezel and would love to add an Orient Pilot watch someday!

    • Zane Domke

      To be fair, the Defender sort of fits the criteria of a pilot’s watch, however, it does lack a GMT function which is incredibly useful for pilots.

  • Max Attack

    I have an Orient Ray that has served me well over the years, I would love to add a Orient star. I would like to see a sport chrono watch in the same vibe as a Daytona

  • Nick D.

    Great giveaway! Orient already has an extensive collection, but might try to offer something more casual and fun (Bahaus inspired design, more unusual color options, etc.).

  • Jonathan Davies

    I’m a fan of Orient and I love a lot of what they already offer. They have really mastered the dressy style but I don’t believe I have noticed very many sport styles. I’d really like to see something with a look influenced a bit by Jacob and Co.? With water resistance, brighter colors and a rubber type band that can handle a little wear and tear while keeping an automatic movement safe inside. Just an idea! I hope I win this really cool piece from Orient! Love the power reserve indicator.

    I have never heard of Orient, being a newbie in watch collecting. But I like the blue face and the power reserve gauge on the front.

    • Zane Domke

      Orient is a subsidiary of Seiko, their watches are incredible value for the money. I have owned a Mako II for a little over a year now and I have nothing but good things to say about it.

  • kw

    Perhaps an Orient Triton Diver with full lume face.

    • Zane Domke

      That would be an excellent successor to the Mako XL with the full lume face.

  • David Fisher

    This is a good looking watch. I would like to see some variations on this design.

  • Robert Carson

    If like to see something more casual. Maybe on a rougher hewn leather strap. If some of the dressy elements of a watch like this were dialed back, and the price point stayed the same or slightly less, this would make a fun, practical everyday wearer with some fun conversation-starting features.

  • Eiji Wolf

    I’d like to see Orient do a vest-pocket watch next, with copious amounts of skeletonization.

  • Andy Berrios

    Nice looking watch!

  • American

    Nice watch but I’m not I’m not a fan of a power reserve indicator. If you can’t figure out that you need to wind a mechanical watch, you should wear a quartz! I would much rather see a GMT hand complication or maybe a pilot style.

  • Kevin Dodge

    Sleek watch, would like to see them put out a solid diver’s piece.

  • Nick W

    I love Orient Star watches and particularly with blue sunburst dials.

  • Michael Kopala

    Now this is what I call a man’s watch yet stylish. Perfect for most occasions especially when going out. We cool design and good job.

  • Marshall Wilen

    I prefer Orient’s more classically simple designs but this definitely has a sophistication that seems well worth its price point.

  • Colleen McKendry

    I would like to see a full skeleton watch. Thanks for the giveaway!

  • Greg Hall


  • Jeremy

    A date window.

  • Skot Kremen

    This is definitely one of the cooler looking dress watches from Orient.

  • Wolfgang Andrew

    Not a big skeleton fan tbh, but this one looks ok. Prefer less busy design.

  • Andres

    I would like to see them make a semi skeleton diver of at least 42 or 44 mm.

  • Deb

    I would like to see a variety of color shades that aren’t the norm. Something fresh and different.

  • Teo Jun Peng

    I would like to see more retrograde designs from orient.


    would like to see something themed to Australia

  • Sean Chadwick

    I would like to see some skeleton watches with a modern design maybe something looking slightly futuristic.

  • Kale Maddox

    This is a dress watch I would wear for special events. It does not need a date or a day window since it will not be used for that long. However, the power reserve indicator would let me know if I need to wind it before I put in on. What I would like to see from Orient is a classy internal rotating bezel. Yes, they have the SK Diver Retro and the Speedtech Auto, but I want something without the rivets and screws where the bezel is discretely hidden beneath the lens. It does not need to be a diver to have this feature for, say, measuring cooking times or a lecture. It could even be a twelve hour bezel.

  • Matthew Kim

    would like to see some unconventional dial designs!

  • Martino Incognito

    New version of sun and moon

  • Isaac Newland

    would like to see a 5 o’clock crown.

  • Erik Sandgren

    A tool bronze diver. No date. Dark navy blue wave textured dial, ceramic bezel, great lume and lumed bezel. 300 m. Doomed saphire crystal. Baton style indicies. Wide arrow style hand.

  • Frank Burton

    Orient has some great, economically priced, Dive watches. I’d like to see some of these come out with icon/classic face colors…orange, yellow, etc.

  • Charles Xi Jin Chan

    Always desire to have a skeleton watch to be part of my collection

  • Vector

    I love the color on this one!

  • Dries Van Houtte

    Would like to see the same semi skeleton (open heart) look on a more sporty/robust model in the future.
    Big fan of this semi skeleton approach.

  • Alexis Paulino

    I already have the Orient Bambino open heart and Orient Mako II, this one would be great to be added to my Orient collection.

  • Alexis Paulino

    I already have the Orient Bambino open heart and Orient Mako II. This would be a great addition to my collection.

  • Peter

    Nice watch for reasonable price. I like the power-reserve indicator. It will be
    nice to have it without „open heart“.

  • Mike O

    I would like to see a 3-hand, hand-wound, no PR, no date, 38mm, with longer hands than Orient typically uses.

  • NGoes

    Loving the trend toward smaller watches. A relief after an era of watches I could never wear. From orient, I agree with mike o – I also like the idea of a handwound watch – marine-style sub second.

  • Zane Domke

    Like the Deep Sea Submariner to the regular Submariner. Could I please get a deeper dive version of the Orient Mako, Ray, Kano, Mako XL, or Kamasu; preferably with a sapphire crystal?

  • Zane Domke

    Oh, yeah! I like that idea. An Explorer that my wallet, and bank account, can actually survive. 🙂

  • Zane Domke

    An Orient pocket watch of any kind would be so unconventional and, subsequently, awesome.

  • Zane Domke

    Like similar to an Orient “grande complication”? That would be amazing if they could pull in off in their price bracket.

  • Zane Domke

    I think that would be neat as long as they don’t make the branding too obvious. A watch taking design cues from and of these legendary American vehicles would be extremely interesting if Mustang, or Camaro, or F150 are not emblazoned in massive text across the dial or something. Pretty cool idea nonetheless. Good luck in the giveaway.

  • Raj Pannu

    Having an Orient represents one of the most sensible horological decisions one can make. I have been a watch enthusiast for years, and for me no other maker comes as close to what Orient offers at the pricepoint.

    In house movements, large R&D, global retail networks and economies of scale ensure what you get is more than you would compares to similar priced Swiss made or microbands.

    And Orient Star is truly underrated! Its finishing, movements, quality is above the similar priced Seiko Presage series. I have an Orient Star classic and its just unbeleiveable value. These guys make nice good watches that make this hobby fun and fascinating!

    What i would like to see are more new Orient Star models, and sporty dress styles too. And of cos, more reviews…like for their Orient Star divers..very elegant and sporty.

  • Chris CC

    At this price point, I believe no other brands could provide such quality of horology as Orient. I understand Orient’s approach in promoting “westernized” Japanese watch to the world, but I believe it’s time to incorporate more Japanese cultural and craftsmanship to provide the market with exciting pieces that perfectly merges Western and Japanese approaches. Not necessarily need to be very Japanese like what Seiko offers in some of their pieces, but a touch of it.

    I will be happy to see more in-house movements with higher complications coming to Orient’s line-up, if-possible a tourbillons with reasonable pricing will be fascinating (provided that Seiko and Citizen only released hundred-thousand-dollar tourbillons in the past). A more luxury line-up comparable to Grand Seiko but with lower pricing will also be a good idea.

  • Killian Paul

    Orient is great, I’d just love them to release other versions of the smaller Bambino (36mm), that would be perfect

  • Rhys Williams

    LOVE this design! Already have a number of Orient watches in my collection and particularly love the Neo70s and Mako II. Would love to see more semi and full skeleton designs as well as more interesting dial designs, loving the more recent smaller size watches! [email protected]

  • Steve W

    I’d love to see a dual time Orient Star. Not a GMT, but a separate subdial that shows a second time zone. Either a blue or white dial.

  • JimmGerd

    I’d like to see detailed dials such as the Schaumburg’s.

  • Orient should think about more small versions of the Bambino!

  • Mike F

    I would like to see a skeleton incorporating the patterns of a traditional incense clock or one paying some homage to a wadokei.

  • Krzysztof Jelski

    I’d like to see an aviator without date window and without the logo.

  • SBUBandit

    I’d like to see a Mako in Titanium

  • drrrre

    a world timer

  • Gokart Mozart

    A small seconds bambino, 38mm, with a 2 tone sector style curved dial, with Credor style real blued steel hands.

  • Alex Tapia

    I would love to see a mako II in titanium ! ?

  • Shane

    I would like to see an option to create a custom watch.

  • Jeff Ó Néill

    For me? Sun and Moon style with a power reserve.

  • Joe in WI

    Orient is offering huge value for their price these days! I’d love to see some smaller options across the board, something like 36-38

  • Duncan Chiu

    honestly, i would like to see more ladies watches! I feel like orient is a great starter for couples watches but so many ladies watches don’t make it to the West.

  • S. Mark

    Kinda looks like a (more affordable!) version of the Breguet Classique Tourbillon 5367 featured on ABTW the other day. Solid piece though.
    I’d like to see a GMT model in the Orient Star Sports collection.

  • Chicagoing

    Love a semi skeleton watch!

  • JP Pistachio

    I would like to see a variety of color shades that aren’t the norm. Something fresh and different.

  • MrLeonidas

    I would really like Orient to make more smaller watches, for expample a Bambino in 38mm would be perfect for me.

  • David W.

    It would be great to see bracelet options for some of the more complicated models to make them a little more versatile.

  • Michael Ward

    I really like how they have done the sunburst blue and the matching strap. Also the size is perfect for this watch. Extremely well done for the price point! Also the clear case back is well done and the 50 hour reserve is superb for a 600 dollar watch. Well done Orient Star! I would like to see a diver watch with blue dial and oyster bracelet.

  • MartinD

    I own a Mako II and think its a great diver. The Orient Star Semi Skeleton checks all the boxes I’m looking for in a dress watch.

  • Nicholas Smith

    I want to see a possible solar atomic watch from orient. So I could have one from each of the bigger Japanese brands (casio, seiko, citizen, orient).

  • Anthony

    I want to see Saphire Cristal for Bambino watches as well as the come back of the Orient Star standard date with the carbon fiber dial.

  • ann lee

    I would like to see a power reserve indicator on a driver with a sundial for another time zone.

  • Mahmood

    Looks like a fantastic watch, cant go wrong with an orient

  • I would like to see next from Orient a titanium watch.

  • Anna

    I’d like to see a model with Arabic numerals and moonphase.
