The Race is On: The New Orient x STI SpeedTech SDA05001B SDA05002B

March 5th, 2014 | No Comments

The relationship between Orient Watch and Subaru Tecnica International (STI) has been well documented. Orient has sponsored STI in both the Nurburgring and Super GT races. The SpeedTech is the latest collection from the long line of collaboration watches from the two Japanese brands. They SDA05001B and SDA05002B are sporty, masculine semi skeleton watches that really pack a punch. Consider the specs: 45mm wide, carbon fiber dial, sapphire crystal with AR coating exhibition case back, 100m WR with screwed down crown, and a automatic, hand-winding and hacking movement. Say it ain’t so! Plus, the SpeedTech Automatic were fully designed with the Subaru BRZ GT300 in mind– much of the design elements of the watch came directly from the car itself. Crazy stuff.
