That one is an orient Star from their retro-future collection from a couple of years ago. They are still being made. That model came in various different colors (some which I thought looked better than that one). It's design was patterned after a vintage racing motorcycle (the section where it says OrientStar mimics the shape of the gas tank).
There is a really cool model in this collection that is patterned after a vintage camera. You can chec k out the entire collection here:
Yup their collection of these retro stuff looks really cool.
Btw, do you know of any parttciular write-ups about the thinking behind the design? In fact, if you didn't point out, I think even noticed that the section where it says OrientStar mimics the shape of the gas tank :-!
I've seen a few write ups before. Just run a few google and forum searches. something is bound to come up. FYI, there are more write ups on the Retro-Camera, and on the Flieger than on the Retro-moto. Also, These watches are big.
