Orient Neo Classic Has That 70s Thing Going On

Orient, which is part of the Seiko family, has three new Neo Classic models, which tap into that 70s Worldtimer vibe very nicely. Prices? Orient aren’t saying but let’s take a guess at about £280 plus VAT from German/EU sources.

Here’s the word;

Orient will launch three Neo Classic Sports models to its sports collection.

The Neo Classic Sports follow Orient’s distinctive designs from the 1960s and 1970s, but with a modern twist.

Enjoying a rich retro design as well as contemporary high quality and performance, Neo Classic Sports are a new generation of iconic watches.

The latest Neo Classic Sports models feature many of the features seen in the original models from the 1960s and 1970s.

These include a dial featuring a block-patterned scale with thick Luminous Light hands, a distinctive cushion case seen in the World Map model and an inner
bezel that can be rotated using the crown at the four o’clock position, a distinctive feature of King Diver and World Map models.

The contemporary features include the stylish bronze and black colouring of the case, enhanced water-resistance to 20 bar. An in-house caliber F6922 automatic movement provides stable accuracy.

Three Neo Classic Sports models will be released.

There’s a model with a distinctive orange block scale, used in models from the 1970s such as the King Diver. Another model has shades of beige housed in a bronze-coloured case that gives it an aged look.

plus a 2,000 limited edition model, combining a dial with block-pattern rainbow-like multicoloured indices and a black-coloured case.

These watches will appeal not only to dedicated Orient fans but also to members of the younger generation who love retro design fashion and lifestyles.
