I got a new Orient CEY04002B, aka "World Time". I wanted a watch with GMT, and quite like the Orient brand, so I got this watch, at a really good deal. I was wanting just a normal GMT-style watch, but Orient doesn't have any that are in the same price range at the moment.
This has a sapphire crystal, world time, GMT/24hr indicator, power reserve, seconds register, date indicator, screw-down crown, and a skeleton back. It weighs 189 grams with all of the links in the band.
The band is solid, but the links are composed of about 5 pieces held together. The clasp is a very nice fold-over double-pushbutton with safety. The end links where it attaches to the case and clasp are one-piece, which I wish they had continued into the band, and not used links made of several pieces.
The 24hour indicator ring can be adjusted separately from the hour hand. The world time ring can be read by adjusting the bezel ring, which is controlled by the upper crown.
This a kind of GMT watch, since the 24-hour ring can be adjusted separately from the normal hour hand. The 24-hour ring moves when the time is set so it isn't a perfect GMT, but, if I was using this watch to travel, and read the "local" time from the world-time ring, then actually no adjustments would be needed for different timezones, since I would just read the correct local-timezone, unless I was going from a place that used DST to one that didn't.
One annoyance I have with the world time ring is that it is all based on "standard time", not daylight saving time. Since I want to keep track of time in Tokyo, which doesn't have a daylight saving time, the American time zones are 1 hour off. In the picture above, I have it set to give me the correct time in Tokyo and GMT, but since I am in the Denver timezone, it is giving an incorrect indication there. Since DST is now most of the year, it would have been better if they had based times on DST, but really they had to make a choice one way or the other.
If I was in Japan, then the American time zones could be correct, except that GMT would be an hour off except during the winter.
Aside from that issue, the rest of the dial is really nice. This is the two-tone model, so the background is black, and areas that are swept by the registers are white. It has the normal "Orient Wave" pattern, leading to a very cool effect. The hour markers are lume surrounded by shiny flat pieces of metal, which tend to sparkle in most light. The lume is pretty strong, this being the first watch I have noticed the lume glowing after being exposed to normal lights.
There aren't any digits for the hours, which given how busy the dial is already, isn't that surprising.
The lower crown is the time adjustment crown, which screws down. The first pull-out sets the date if rotated one way and the 24-hour ring if rotated the other way. At the second pull-out you set the time which is linked to the 24-hour ring.
The upper crown sets the world time ring, and doesn't pull out at all.
Both crowns have the Orient logo etched into them.
This watch has a display case back, which exposes the Orient no-frills movement. It is cool to see the Orient name etched into the movement in several places, including under the balance wheel.
This is a bigger watch, and a fair bit heavier than my other Orient watch.
This is a very busy watch, with a bit of "bling" factor as well. With a sapphire crystal, it should be a very durable timepiece.
