The Orient star classic (SAF02002B0, AF02002B0) s-l300.jpg
seems to use two different movements.

Is, by any chance, F6N44 a newer movement that is going to replace 40N52?
Does anybody know the differences between the two movements?

Here’s an article about that very thing:

The 40N5 movement has the Orient 'EL" designation. AF is the designator for the F6N. Likely a write up error. The previous model was the SEL05, came in 5 colorways

SEL05005S SEL05005S0 | Orient Automatic Watches & Reviews | Puritime

The 40N5 is an older caliber based on the 407/8 caliber used in the 2000s, used in most Orient Stars, the OSD and the original Triton/Neptune

Part of the confusion is that the 40N had a 40 hr. power reserve. The F6N has the same P.R. rating.... but other F6/F7 calibers have 50 hr. P.R. rather confusing.

Another Orient factoid: If the model starts w/ a F as in the FAA02 (either the Mako II or Ray II) it was NOT assembled in Japan. The Mako US (SAA02) the "S" means it is assembled in Japan. All Orient Stars had the S in the model designator.
