ORIENT YFH03002M Automatic Watch

September 25th, 2009 | 22 Comments

This series of watches is greatly inspired by the motorcycles of the 50’s. At
the time, motorcycles were valued for their sense of style and individualism.
Likewise, this collection offers a more stylistic approach as well as a sense of
freedom from conformity. 

Orient’s retro collection’s best attribute is the design of the dial. Notice
how this watch follows the motif of motorcycles in the industrial age. Not only
does this semi-skeleton allow for the owner to see the motion of the balance
wheel, but it also shows the stem as well.

Notice how this watch has its unique designs on the dial such as the hour
indicators on the crystal glass instead of the surface of the dial. This makes
it the perfect watch for those individuals who value uniqueness in quality and

Both the power reserve indicator (located on the 12 O’clock indicator) as
wells the second hand (located on the 6 O’clock indicator) demonstrates the look
of a speedometer of a motorcycle. A power reserve indicator indicates how much
power is left in the springs of a watch. Another interesting attribute to the
dial is the luminescent hour indicators, hour hand, and minute hand.

When looking at the side of the watch, you will notice the contours running
around the bezel (the ring of the watch) and the hexagonal shaped crown (a
time-setting piece on the side of the watch).

The crown is a screw down which means that it prevents water from entering
the case.

This watch also has an exhibition caseback so that the owner is able to view
the mechanics of the watch through the glass.

Both the exhibition caseback and the bezel are finished metals. However, the
case comes in matte finish.

The band for this watch comes in solid stainless steel.

One of the more interesting features of this metal band are the barrels on the
side that separate the links. This characteristic marks a sportier look to the

Last but not least is the clasp shown below:

 You will notice that the clasp is a deployment clasp, which prevents
the watch from coming off inadvertently.

    Orient star watches are beyond compare…but this style isn’t really my thing. Can appreciate it from a mechanical point of view, just not something I would necessarily want to wear.

  3. By Jae on Jul 22, 2009

    First Orient Star watch on DOD!

  4. By Douglas on Jul 22, 2009

    Is the case diameter 42 or or 44 mm?

  5. By Steven on Jul 22, 2009

    This watch is a very well made piece, but much like the gentleman above, I much prefer classic designs.

    Beautiful but an OrientStar with no sapphire crystal at this price??

    Just looking at the escapement cage tells you how much attention to detail was given in the making of this watch. The power reserve indicator is a great addition to the already well thought out design of the dial. This watch will go with almost any apparel. I will definitely have to save a big portion of my pay just to be able to get one.

    Love it, Orient! Well done!!!

    One of my fave Orient watches! The face tells it all….the embodiment of a classic motorcycle. Well done Orient.

    If only this has sapphire crystal…

  10. By Brad Smith on Jul 22, 2009

    Interesting looking watch.

  11. By Clark on Jul 23, 2009

    A beautiful watch but it NEEDS a sapphire crystal. Other than that, this watch lacks nothing.

  12. By Paul Smith on Jul 23, 2009

    Great looking watch, I’m a fan of orange dials and the shade of orange this model appears unique. Skeletonizing looks great as well. A fantastic time piece that looks like it should cost much more than the DOD price.

    It has to have a sapphire crystal to be a part of the ORIENTSTAR group.

  14. By Stephen Santoro on Sep 25, 2009

    I love this watch. I wish I could buy it right now I would!

  15. By Dave S on Sep 25, 2009

    I had not seen this color option before. Normally I’m not a fan of lighter colored watches, but this is pretty nice.

  16. By Tim on Sep 25, 2009

    Very nice looking watchorcycle.

  17. By Rhonda on Sep 25, 2009

    I got a greater appreciation for the watch after watching the video. It is a beautiful watch.

  18. By FernandoC on Sep 25, 2009

    Nice but a little bit expensive for the features

  19. By aliotsy on Sep 25, 2009

    Wow, gorgeous.

  20. By Vladimir on Sep 25, 2009

    ORIENTSTAR is a true luxury by ORIENT. Excellent timepiece.

  21. By Jon on Sep 25, 2009

    Gorgeous design but I dont know about the color.

  22. By Reju on Sep 25, 2009

    WOW! This watch looks amazing! I would make it mine for $250~$300. Wish it had saphire crystal.

  23. By Meg on Sep 25, 2009
