    ORIENT "SK" NOS and HELLO !

    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
    https://forums.watchuseek.com/f78/cit...os-459385.html

    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 :

    NEW 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
    Now enough talk, here are the pics





    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












    Wristshots :



    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 ?
