Founded in 1950, Orient Watch has been providing the world with unique and distinctive timepieces. Today, the Orient brand is cherished by customers in more than 70 countries and continues to hone its craft by developing the mechanical movement. To date, Orient has developed over 40 unique mechanical watch calibers, and its factories in Northern Japan produce over 1.1 million watch movements per year.
Orient prides itself on the premise that its timepieces are a “watchmaker’s watch”– a no frills mechanical watch that is robust and trustworthy. Our online reputation suggests that an Orient watch is reliable out of the box, and our use of a ball bearing system in our automatic watches ensure that the watch will start running with little effort. All of this can be attributed to Orient’s undying dedication to the mechanical watch. The implicit value of possessing an Orient watch is that the only way to enjoy its tremendous quality is through ownership.
Mechanical watches are considered to offer a number of advantages:
Interesting and artistic features in which time the time ticks off through the combined work of precision parts.
Efficient capturing of the energy of motion generated by daily activities.
Functionality for an extended period through part replacement, with an added emotional value through successive generations of families passing down valued watches.
