I have seen the post and it got me very happy as I have imagined what an OS Standard Date would look like as a GMT model, and was wondering why Orient is not doing it, they have the great case and design, and the movement!!

I am glad they did it and also glad they didnt "over do" it, like they sometimes know, like on the old OS GMT where they added the power reserve AND the rotating bezel WHICH MEANT ANOTHER CROWN and that weird crown guard!!

I wish they made it without the power reserve, but I like it like this aswell!!

Congrats to Orient and I cant wait to see the model on real life Photos

It looks very nice.
I hope they'll keep the old OS GMT, since the feature set really differentiates them. This new one is "cleaner looking" and possibly more elegant, while the other with the rotating bezel offers the possibility of tracking 3 time zones and possibilities to do it in different ways.
If they're just replacing the old one, I'm glad I've got an "old one with rotating bezel" even if the case design and dial layout are more streamlined a bit more to my liking...

Damn, i would like to see one of those on real pictures. I hope someone can compare the watch with a mako. Just curious about the size. Im afraid that it will be to big. <40mm would be just great!
+1

I believe the case will be the same as OS Standard Date, which means 40/41mm and 47/48 Lug to lug!! It should be OK for us with small wrists!!

If they make it bigger I will be very disappointed as I have been dreaming of such a watch ever since the Standard date came out!!

It may be the photo, but I believe the bezel on this GMT is smaller than the Standard Date. Which is a plus in my book and I hope it is true.
Also the bracelet design is way better IMHO.

If you compare the position of the power reserve and date relative to the bezel on the news photo

to where it is on the 42mm "star seeker" which I suppose share the same movement...


It's very probable that this new model is 40mm-ish.

Heads up guys, spotted this model "Orient Star WZ0071DJ GMT" on Ebay, although the seller may be questionable...limited sale history and all.

Don't want to put up the link, because I don't trust the seller, but it at least may indicate that the watch is available?

It's due to be released one of these days, but for now JDM only, so keep that in mind when judging the seller.

I wouldn't buy the OS GMT there. Just ask Chino-Watch, Higuchi or Seiya. They should be able to sell the WZ0071DJ (blue dial) easily.

I just tried to order the WZ0081DJ limited edition. Chino said they don't carry it because only Orient Prestige shops would sell them.
Even Higuchi didn't succeed in ordering it (he asked for 960$ for the ltd.ed.). Seiya offered me one of the ltd.ed. WZ0081DJ for the same amount as this ebay seller.

It's okay for the ltd.ed. (which seems quite rare) and Seiya has no brick and mortar store for his living. But you should find the blue dial version for at least 100$ less at a reputable seller.

All of the aforementioned Shops are highly recommendable.
