Orient Star watches
As Orient’s most distinguished and exquisite timepiece collection, ORIENT STAR has always provided exceptional quality, craftsmanship and elegant simplicity since 1951.
1951: Original ORIENT STAR
The original ORIENT STAR was named after the image of a shining star. That aspiration is apparent in the blue steel hands and other details. Like the New ORIENT, it was originally equipped with the pre-war type movement. That was changed to the newly designed movement the following year in 1952. Hand-winding. 10 jewels or 15 jewels. Production discontinued.
1957: ORIENT STAR Dynamic
ORIENT, which had been using an improved version of a pre-war movement, released the T-type center-second movement, which overlays the center wheel and the fourth wheel, in the mid-1950s. It was the ORIENT STAR Dynamic that came equipped with this new movement. Nivaflex, which is difficult to break, was adopted for the main spring. Hand-winding. Production discontinued.
2005: ORIENT STAR Retro Future
