ORIENT adds new diver design models to its Sports Collection

Ideal for everyday use, from town to country and ocean

ORIENT announces five new diver design* editions with bold new colours to its Sports Collection, and a further two models for specific countries.

The collection of mechanical watches, suitable for everyday use, are popular throughout the world and have become flagship designs representing everything that is ORIENT.

*Not an ISO standard diver’s watch.

Popular sports models incorporate distinctive features of professional divers’ watches such as excellent waterproofing, a rotating bezel, and dial design with high visibility. ORIENT has been developing diver design watches with these features since the 1960s.

The new models introduce vibrant, fresh colours for the dial and rotating bezel, while retaining the case, dial, and strap design of models in the existing collection. In addition to basic black, dials are available in blue, green, and red. The dials are combined with a bi-colour bezel such as blue and red with a black dial, or blue and orange with a blue dial adding a playful and creative accent. These stylish, multi-colour variations can be enjoyed in a wide range of settings, from the beach to the busy city.

Two limited-edition models for specific markets are also available which take design inspiration from the sea. One model features a colour theme suggestive of a luxurious “night of gold”, a combination of a gold colour on a black dial suggesting the moon light reflections on a night sea. The other has a white dial and black bezel, for a “big wave” theme evoking a dramatic wave rolling up with hints of sea foam. Each model will be limited to just 1,010 units, with serial numbers engraved on the case back and presented in a limited-edition box.

Models come in a 44mm stainless steel case, are water resistant to 20 bar, common to ORIENT’s diver design watches, and incorporate an in-house automatic movement. Along with eye catching designs, these watches are solidly built with reliable functions.

Both limited editions (RA-AA0917B and RA-AA0918S) will be available in Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, Philippines, Hong Kong, Taiwan and China with the RA-AA0917B also available in UAE.
