Following the news of Orient’s UK website launch, the brand promised that a number of new and exclusive timepieces will be unveiled soon. Picking up on that, Orient has revealed its third M-FORCE sports collection flagship model, as well as the new Orient Star Basic Date series.

The new M-FORCE demonstrates a tough and outdoor-ready design that exudes industrial appeal. Arriving in navy blue, orange, or red dials, the three colorways are themed around different aspects of Earth — with navy blue signifying the deep sea, orange for volcanic lava, and red reflecting magma. All options are attired in a 45mm case made of stainless steel, paired with the in-house F6727 automatic calibre. The red dial version comes outfitted with a black plated bezel, and is offered as a 2,000-piece limited-edition.

On the other hand, Orient Star’s new Basic Date timepiece is an embodiment of practicality and urban elegance. Arriving in a 42 mm-sized stainless steel case, the watch is accompanied by a matching integrated bracelet. Available in 5 variations, two of which are enhanced with different colored plated bezels — one in rose gold, the other in yellow gold. Meanwhile, the dial colors span from black, blue, white, and gray to green, complete with bold bar indices, and power reserve indicators. Beating inside the Basic Date is the watch brand’s own F6N43 automatic mechanical movement with up to 50 hours of running time.

Head over to Orient’s official UK website to find out about the aforementioned models’ price points and availability.
