Sarah just sent me Orient's latest press release.

Watch Analog watch Watch accessory Strap Fashion accessory

Inspired by more than 65-years of ORIENT STAR watchmaking, the ORIENT STAR Classic Skeleton in Stainless Steel is a distinctly masculine homage to in-house manufacturing, engineering and the art of movement.

Its three-dimensional skeletonised case reflects the aesthetic beauty and precision craftsmanship of the ORIENT STAR in-house Calibre 48E51 movement, which is carefully designed and constructed in Japan. This movement's 50-hour power reserve is tracked via a sub-dial at the 12 o'clock position, continuing a ong ORIENT STAR tradition of timepieces with prominent power reserve indicators. This is expertly balanced with a small seconds sub-dial at the 6 o'clock position.

Created to make a statement, the ORIENT STAR Classic Skeleton features a 39 mm stainless steel case with a wide sapphire glass window to stage each detailed layer of the mechanical movement, which can be seen from both the front and back.

A two-tier chapter ring with engraved cross-hatch detailing adds interest to the dial, while electric blue hands, baton indices and Roman numeral hour markings highlight ORIENT STAR's signature attention-to-detail.

The ORIENT STAR Classic Skeleton is finished with a refined, hand-sewn black crocodile leather strap, designed for both comfort and durability.

This is rather confusing, if indeed a new press release - the details are identical to the existing skeleton models presented on Orient's website - and just in case there's been a recent update, I also checked against the original Orient store brochures I have, which feature the same models. The photo too is identical I am certain. The only peculiar item is the mention of caliber 48E51, which is the gold-toned version (used with the respective gold-toned version of the watch), whereas the watch pictured uses 48E52 (the basic, steel colored version).

No worries there, I think we all know Orient's marketing (like Seiko's) is not always up to par with their watchmaking :)
