The Japanese house of Orient Star is celebrating its 70th anniversary this year in style with a dashing new skeleton watch, the Layered Skeleton, with four new models including the limited-edition 70th anniversary model. An original dial, superb design and state-of-the-art technology all come together in this watch which draws its inspiration from the curves and textiles found in business suits. Embracing the theme of Nowhere. Now Here, the timepiece celebrates its own originality.
The new Layered Skeleton incorporates motifs which reflect suit fabrics, the upper layer of the dial is designed with a herringbone pattern while the lower layer is a take on paisley. Meanwhile the open-work design of the power reserve display reveals the inner workings of the watch’s in-house 46-F6 movement. The watch has a power reserve of 50 hours.
The dial is available in three colors: brown herringbone, black herringbone, and white herringbone. The brown and black herringbone models are combined with a navy-blue paisley design for two-toned contrast. The white herringbone model is combined with a simple silver- colored lower layer, with the contrasting luster of the layers creating a sense of depth. These three watches are outfitted with a silver bracelet.
A limited-edition model to celebrate the 70th anniversary of Orient Star with just 1,400 pieces available worldwide has also been brought out. This exceptional model, featuring a layered green dial highlighted with a navy-blue gradation, a navy blue strap and large glittering silver and blue accents, reflects the nebula concept common to all the 70th anniversary limited-edition models, making it a truly exceptional premium model.
