World Cup fever has taken over once again. It only happens every four years so  its easy to be taken off guard by it. When you are searching for your USA jersey, it often leaves you wondering what else you can do to support the team. Well don’t forget about what’s on your wrist. Offered in a very patriotic red, white, and blue dial variations, the Chicane would be a great teammate for watching the world cup games with.

The Chicane is designed in the classic field watch style, which is known for its bold dials and crossover appeal (its easy to dress up or down). Both the red and blue dial examples offer a different take the traditional colored dial approach. Each one graduates from a vivid blue or striking red in the center of the dial to a black encircling the edge.  White hour markers against the black edge creates a great distinction between the two, allowing for fast reference. The dial’s unique visual interest is further accented by the diamond texture which has been applied.

Under this breathtaking dial is the ORIENT in house caliber 48743 automatic mechanical movement, which has been a staple of the Orient Watch lineup and featured in the extremely popular Flight and Symphony series. With its automatic winding, a dead battery will never slow you down. Housing the mechanical movement is the 39mm stainless steel case. The combination of both brushed and polished stainless steel gives the Chicane an added visual depth to the watch when on the wrist. Even when you do decide to take off the Chicane, there’s something special on the other side, the exhibition screw caseback. This gives you a glimpse into the inner workings of the watch. So whether its the red, white, or blue dial which fits your personality best, there’s no wrong way to support Team USA!
