    Looks like a million bucks. Thanks for sharing. Orient has been releasing a lot of new models lately... Surely a sign that they've stepped up as a company.

    I wonder if Orient plan to release all models of the Orient Star worldwide? Japanese doesn't translate well but it seems to say that....

    Yeah, sounds like this model will be part of the World Stage collection. If so then the international version should be cheaper so more people can have access to these excellent pieces.

    I dont know about this one - it seems that hands are hard to see so telling time will be a challenge IMO.

    To be fair, that is always the case with skeleton watches. From what I have seen, it is almost always difficult to read the time at a glance.

    I sort of lost my interest in skeleton watches awhile back, but his is certainly a beauty AND and Orient! Being a limited edition I'm sure they will sell well and for the those my find the LE too pricey the SDX00001W and SDX00002W models are available here in the States. Back in 2010 I got the Orient LE 60th anniversary (gold plated) hand wind, which has a very classic look to it. Wish I had got the stainless steel one at the same time.

    Looks like Orient is going the same way with the WZ0011DX WZ0021DX as the 60th. Gold plated or stainless steel and leather strap.
