CEZ05003B features

The CEZ05003B Racing Automatic is becoming one of Orient’s most popular watches. Let’s take a look at its special features to find out what makes this watch a great timepiece.

In-house movement
No ETA movement here. The CEZ05003B, like all Orient Automatic Watches, uses a 100% in-house movement.

And with the cool skeleton (i.e. see-through) case back, you can dazzle over Orient’s authentic and accurate movement.


40-hr Power Reserve and Indicator

Orient’s automatics have an approximately 40-hour Power Reserve. The CEZ05003B also has a Power Reserve Indicator, so you’ll know when your watch needs charging.

Sapphire crystal
Strong, durable and scratch-resistant. What more could you want from a watch crystal?

The CEZ05003B also uses an anti-reflective coating on the sapphire crystal to tone down the shine.

Carbon fiber dial
Carbon fiber is extremely light-weight and durable, so many people choose products from bicycles to sunglasses that use the material.

The carbon fiber dial also adds a subtle quilted texture to the watch face.

Other features include:

  • 100m water resistance
  • Stainless steel case and band
  • Seconds eye
  • Date calendar eye
  • Screwed-down crown and case back
  • $650 price tag


The all black design of the watch also adds a sleek element that can be an excellent choice for either formal or casual dress.

Racing-inspired look

The CEZ05003B is designed to look like a dashboard with bright red highlights and separate eyes for seconds, date and the Power Reserve indicator.

Carbon fiber is also the choice for car and bicycle racing because it is lightweight and fast, so the use of the material on this watch is an added racing-inspired bonus for you to admire.

The hour markers on the watch dial also appear illuminated and almost reminiscent of the bright lights at a race track.

    I buy and sell a lot of watches, keeping my collection fresh. I’ve just ordered my second Orient.

    The 40 hour power reserve is a great feature when you change watches often.

    I find the Orient movement is remarkably accurate for an automatic.

    This Orient CEZ05003B is a beautiful timepiece–a handsome black plating, and yet, still easy to read. It’s a great addition to anyone’s collection.

    I am looking for a good watch but do not want to pay ridiculous price for it. When I chanced upon a Orient two months ago, I have combed the web and found many stories about the Orient that I am very impressed with. This CEZ05003B Orient model is very beautiful. I will have to save up to get one!

    Highly recommended quality, do check it out, you will be impressed.
