Hello everybody, it is my first post on the ORIENT forum
I'm usually hanging on the "affordable" subforum, and it struck me a while ago that some major japanese brands were missing to my collection. Namely Ctitizen, and of course ORIENT.
I recently got a Citizen NH4000
and was very close to buy this model :
but I never could made up my mind about which colour to choose
Ultimately, I discovered this very fine piece, browsing the bay…
THE ORIENT SK (Y469135A-4B)
seller's infos :Now enough talk, here are the picsNEW OLD STOCK VINTAGE ORIENT SK CRYSTAL
Automatic winding watch from around 1970'S
BRAND : ORIENT
MODEL : SK CRYSTAL
DIAL : Nice gold & black two tone color dial & Inner scale bezel can rotate / Day-Date quick set at 3 o'clock
CRYSTAL : Glass
CASE : Stainless steel case / Stainless steel back
SIZE : Large 42 x 40 mm. (Excluding Crown)
MOVEMENT : Automatic winding watch ORIENT 21 jewels JAPAN Good Movement & Keeping good time accuracy
CONDITION : New old stock as you can see at the pictures
BAND : Stainless steel bracelet
The bracelet has folded links, but the quality is OK. The lugs are 18mm wide but the bracelet is actually 22m wide at the end
At that size, age signs are showing, but they're barely noticeable at the eye.
Could we have a model number here ?
- Pusher @ 2h sets the Day.
- The crown sets the Date & the Hour
- The crown @ 4h rotates the inner bezel
Apart slight traces of age on the hands, the watch is in perfect condition. It came with an Orient tag on the bracelet, and there was a sticker with a laser printing on it.
Here are pics of the gorgeous back
One very goog thing : the watch wears bigger than its actual size (a 'small' 40mm without the crown), it's pretty high too. A substantial watch on the wrist :
Oh. Did I mention I'm absolutely happy with this purchase ?
