Step Back in Time with the Orient Epoch

May 28th, 2012 Posted in Orient Watch Reviews | 4 Comments

The first wrist watches were created around 1868 by Patek Phillipe, and were worn mainly by women. Men at the time still carried classic pocket watches, not unlike Orient’s Epoch. The only pocket watch offered by Orient Watch USA, the Epoch offers a great addition to Orient’s other watches, just without all the bulk on your wrist.

What else is great about the Orient Epoch?

The Epoch contains an in-house Orient Caliber 48C40 self-winding, mechanical movement and is built with some of Orient’s finest materials. Epoch features include:

  • Stainless steel case, chain, and lobster claw clasp
  • Scratch-resistant sapphire crystal on the front and back of the case
  • 30m water resistance for minor splashes
  • 40-hour power reserve indicator
  • 40mm case diameter, 11.4mm thickness
  • 1-year Orient Watch USA warranty

The Orient Epoch also offers an elegance that can be worn by either men or women. A textured dial creates added depth to the watch face and the bright blue moon hands hint at antiquity without allowing this watch to look outdated.

What are people saying about the Orient Epoch?

In addition to the features listed above, be sure to check out what these customers had to say about this unique pocket watch.

“The watch itself is solid stainless steel, is very small at about 40mm across–like a wrist watch. The movement is tight and responsive to winding, the polish is nice. In my opinion, this watch is nicer than many priced at or above $1000. There is a high end Japanese sibling to this pocket watch with a similar movement priced at $1400. But this guy is an everyday luxury watch with everyday reliability that looks really good and feels really solid and is MECHANICAL.”

“The watch has a very impressive face and my girlfriend was immediately stunned by its appearance. The size is just as expected, if you’ve seen a pocket watch before. I’ve found the watch to be quite accurate for time and it ends up stealing much of mine as I admire it’s beauty.”

“This watch is a good value. It should last a lifetime if well cared for and regularly serviced.”

    I’ve never been very interested in pocket watches… but these pictures have changed my mind. Very nice.

    This watch is very classic and useful to all age alike. The very best feature for me to have this watch, will be brand, quality and time accuracy. The lobster claw clasp is very durable and do not break on certain pressure. Though, packed with good material, water resistance capability and comparability to the mechanism in this watch in flawless. It is as small it looks like, but has unique face of its own.

    Yes, it is indeed a very good watch. Very original design, as well as upgraded self-winding mechanism.
    And still a very big plus in these hours of their original size.
    Watch just a very very good!!!

    As a vest wearer I can say that your pocket watches are some of the most beautifull and uniqe watches to be had. I just love pulling it out in a crowded area and having someone comment on it almost everytime..
