Orient AAA Crystal Automatic

Orient AAA Crystal Automatic

Description:
Large and rugged Orient diver style watch reminiscent of Orients of the late 1960s/1970s. This one is new old stock probably dating from the late 1980s. The movement is of course a variation on the rugged 469 series which itself is based on the older Seiko calibres 66xx and 70xx series. Thus, rugged, reliable and built to run for many years with minimum maintenance. This is old school in looks and design!
