Orient Star has released three new M34 F7 Semi Skeleton models. M34 is the abbreviated name of the star cluster in Perseus, known for its meteor shower. The new models, which have a strong, sharp case shape as a key design feature, exude unparalleled originality with subtly coloured dials that express the dynamic colours of the aurora.
Space and the natural world are central to the worldview of Orient Star, which is dedicated to refining its technology, design, and quality to produce “shining star” watches. The inspiration for this M34 F7 Semi Skeleton, with its mother-of-pearl dial and gradation, is the aurora: the curtain of colourful light floating in the night sky. The sapphire crystal with super anti-reflective (SAR) coating on both sides of the glass provides a clear view of the strong lines and shifting shades of the dial.
The mother-of-pearl dial with gradation comes in three colours: blue, green, and charcoal grey. The charcoal grey model with a metal bracelet is Semi Skeleton’s 20th anniversary model limited to 500 pieces and comes with an exchangeable calf leather strap (certified by the Leather Working Group*1).
The sharp, powerful case design is beautifully enhanced by the contrast of the delicate hairline and mirror finish of the Sallaz polishing.
The M34 F7 Semi Skeleton is powered by the automatic (with hand winding) in-house calibre F7F44 which provides high accuracy of +15 seconds to –5 seconds per day and power reserve of 50 hours. The movement with Geneva stripes and chamfer finish, is visible through the see-through sapphire crystal case back.
