ORIENT announces five new diver design* editions with bold new colours to its Sports Collection. This model is popular throughout the world and has become one of the brand’s most well-known flagship designs. The diver design timepiece is a mechanical watch suitable for everyday use.
Popular sports models incorporate distinctive features of professional divers’ watches such as high waterproof function, rotating bezel, and dial design with high visibility. ORIENT has been developing diver design watches with these features since the 1960s.
The new models introduce vibrant, fresh colours for the dial and rotating bezel, while retaining the case, dial, and strap design of models in the existing collection. In addition to basic black, dials are available in blue, green, and red.
The dials are combined with a bi-colour bezel such as blue and red with a black dial, or blue and orange with a blue dial adding a playful and creative accent. These stylish, multi-colour variations can be enjoyed in a wide range of settings.
Every model comes in a 44mm stainless steel case, is water resistant to 20 bar, common to ORIENT’s diver design watches, and incorporates an in-house automatic movement.
