Did you know that some of the unique features of Orient watches include:
Automatic Movement: Many Orient watches are powered by an automatic movement, which means they are powered by the motion of the wearer's wrist. This makes them highly accurate and reliable.
Hand-Winding: Some Orient watches also have a manual winding feature, which allows the wearer to wind the watch by hand if it stops running.
Power Reserve Indicator: Some Orient watches also have a power reserve indicator, which shows how much power is left in the watch.
Sapphire Crystal: Orient watches often use sapphire crystal, a highly durable and scratch-resistant material, which help to protect the watch face.
Water-Resistance: Many Orient watches are water-resistant, making them suitable for swimming and other water-based activities.
Unique designs: Orient watches are known for their unique designs, which often have a vintage look, and are inspired by their Japanese heritage.
Orient Watch Co., Ltd. was founded in 1950 by Shogoro Yoshida, who had previously worked for the Japanese government's watchmaking research institute. The company began by producing mechanical watches, which were made with parts imported from Switzerland. These early watches were primarily sold in Japan, but by the 1960s, Orient had begun exporting its watches to other countries.
In the 1970s and 1980s, Orient introduced quartz watches to its product line. These watches were more accurate and required less maintenance than mechanical watches, which helped to make them popular with consumers. Orient also began to expand its product line to include a wider range of styles and features, such as watches with alarms, chronographs, and water-resistance.
In 2009, Orient Watch Co., Ltd. became a subsidiary ofEpson, a large Japanese electronics company. This allowed Orient to benefit from Seiko Epson's technological expertise and resources, which helped to further improve the quality and performance of its watches. Today, Orient offers a wide range of watches, including mechanical, quartz, and automatic watches for men and women, with a variety of styles and features. The company continues to be known for its quality, reliability and affordability. Orient watches are especially popular in Asia and Middle East countries, but also have a strong following in other countries as well.
