Orient Lady Rose: Fancy Bracelet or Quality Timepiece?

April 27th, 2010 | 2 Comments



Orient’s Lady Rose watches include elegant, slim and sturdy designs that double as fancy bracelets and quality timepieces. All of the Lady Rose watches have a quartz movement, so maintaining accurate time shouldn’t be a problem.

These watches are perfect for someone who likes to keep the time, but who doesn’t care for heavy, bulky watches with many gadgets or additional features.

In this article, we’ll take a closer look at 3 Lady Rose watches, including:


CBFAQ001W

The CBFAQ001W is one of the signature Orient Lady Rose designs. Because of the watch’s unusual design, it’s quite eye-catching, and at first, it seems more like a fancy charm bracelet than a watch.

Upon closer inspection, however, we can see that the “charm” is in fact a small, subtle watch.

CBFAQ001W

The features on the CBFAQ001W include:
  • Stainless steel case and band: keeps the watch sturdy and durable
  • 30m water resistance: protects the watch from minor splashes or spills
  • Faceted mineral crystal: protects the watch dial/hands from damage; in this case, the faceted crystal almost magnifies the watch dial for better visibility

The rhinestone detail around the watch band gives a more elegant, dressed-up look to an otherwise simple watch band. This detail will easily match other jewelry, and is simple enough to be worn with additional jewels, yet bold enough to wear on its own.

If you’re interested in other CBFAQ00 styles, Orient offers a black dial design or a golden pink case/band design.

CRBAU002B

A different, perhaps more business than formal Lady Rose design can be seen in the CRBAU002B. Though still slim and jewelry-like, this watch is a bit more practical than the CBFAQ001W.

The CRBAU002B offers a larger dial, larger hands and visible hour markers for easier readability. The position of the watch is also a bit more traditional than the CBFAQ001W.

Check out some additional features:
  • Stainless steel case and band: keeps the watch sturdy and durable
  • 30m water resistance: protects the watch from minor splashes or spills
  • Mineral crystal: protects the watch dial/hands from damage

The two-tone design of the band adds a bold touch to a traditional all silver band. Yet the use of roman numerals for the 12 and 6 hour markers recalls a classic watch design.

For an even bolder take on the CRBAU002B, be sure to check out the CRBAU003W with a red and silver band and a white dial.

CRPDD007W

The CRPDD007W is one of the most popular Lady Rose watches. It has been praised for it’s ultra-femininity and quiet simplicity. It’s also one of the more versatile and visible watches in the collections. The CRPDD007W offers a full clock with larger and bolder hands than many of Orient’s other ladies quartz watches.

Though all of the Lady Rose watches are lightweight, this watch has also been noted for its comfort because of its soft leather band as opposed to a stainless steel band.

Additional watch features include:
  • Stainless steel case: keeps the watch sturdy and durable
  • 30m water resistance: protects the watch from minor splashes or spills
  • Mineral crystal: protects the watch dial/hands from damage

The CRPDD007W is ideal for someone who wants a watch that can be formal and fancy yet casual, too.

However, if you prefer automatic watches to quartz watches, Orient ladies automatics are worth checking out as well.

    Elegant look and very pretty. However not to my wifes taste. The multieyes is more to her likeing, but not the colors. I (she) would like to see a multieyes with the Mako blue or yellow. Maybe a ladies Mako? I would love to buy her an Orient, but she hasn’t seen anything yet. She loves mine, but they are way too big for her. Keep up the good work, Orient, and I’m sure something will come along.

    If I were shopping for a watch for my wife, and I am, I would have to choose the CRPDD007W due to its classic styling.
