Since its birth in 1951, ORIENT STAR has strived to create mechanical watches that are “shining stars”. Throughout its history, the brand has produced high-quality made-in-Japan watches that combine traditional craftsmanship with the latest watchmaking technologies.
The Mechanical Moon Phase, which first launched in 2017, features ORIENT STAR’s distinctive design elements, including a power reserve indicator at 12 o’clock, the semi-skeleton window at 9 o’clock that shows the inner workings of the mechanical movement, and the moon phase display at 6 o’clock with a date hand.
In 2020, an unconventional new model was released from the Contemporary Collection. The unique design was inspired by the concept of viewing the Earth from behind the Moon. The moon phase display at 6 o’clock represents the Moon and the semi-skeleton window at 9 o’clock as the Earth.
These design are encased in sapphire crystal glass with anti-reflective coatings on both sides, which provides a clear view of the entire watch dial. These model have ceramic accents on the side of the crown as a stylish design feature.
The modern case with its tasteful design details includes “Sallaz” polishing, creating a smooth mirrored surface which reflects without distortion. The result is a powerful edgy look with a contemporary feel, making these models ideal for any occasion whether business or casual.
