    Orient Triton becomes the Neptune, what do you think?

    Just noticed that Orient US is now calling the Triton the NEPTUNE. I liked the Triton name, I have seen other brands use Triton (can't recall the maker's name).

    Orient Brazil has produced a number of Neptune (Netuno & Neptuno) divers for some time. All used the caliber 469 movement (469SS).

    Looking at the Brazil site the current divers are not named so perhaps Orient chose to use Neptune for the US version of the Triton

    So, Orient US and Orient Japan, how about an updated Neptune w/ new colorways and/or new bezel insert choices? Garnet red or Jade/sea green?

    Not a fan. I thought Triton was a badass name.

    Neptune just reminds me of this guy from SpongeBob

    There ya go! Just paste his likeness on the dial and sell way more watches.

    OTOH, if you visit the Non US and non-Japan Orient sites none of the watches have a nickname like 'Triton' or 'Kano' only the model designation is listed.

    I wonder if it's a cultural thing.
