Orient Automatic FEM7A004R9 Sports Mens Watch
Any smaller or bigger would take away the charm and it is a size that works for the medium to the largest possible of wrists.
Orient Flight watches bring an exceptionally good value. That’s, however; common for every Orient watch, but here, what you get is some out of the box ideas turned into a fascinating, peppy design and styling. It’s a sharp contrast to Orient’s usual formal or rugged looks and therefore, a rarity among the Orient sports watches.
The Orient Automatic FEM7A004R9 Sports Mens Watch features a type B aviator dial, the kind that was popular among the bomber pilots during the WWII era. Some of its important aspects are:
• A large, luminous dial and bold, luminescent hands, all three of them.
• An in-house, 23 Jewel automatic movement (calibre 46943) built with the best technology that Orient has on offer.
• A solid, stainless steel construction offering a trustworthy durability.
• Huge, luminescent hour markers to facilitate time-viewing, even at night.
• A double-push, fold-over safety clasp that operates with the push of a button. This ensures the clasp doesn’t come off accidentally and only when the wearer intends.
The Orient Flight watch is a remarkably straight-forward piece that hits to the point and makes for the quintessential and classic piece for pilots. This aviation timepiece also doubles up as a diver that is fit for moderate depths. To be true, it is bit more than the ambiguous bent and doesn’t want to sell through any creative feature. It sticks to the tradition of telling the time clearly and helps you discover a whole new world of simplistic functions with ease.
It is extremely legible and that’s because you don’t get much time to stare at your wrist when your aircraft is at stake. Sticking to the historic aviator watch designs, it makes use of some actual cockpit instrumentation designs, making the Orient Flight simple yet attractive. The metallic finish of the greenish-blue dial has a powdery effect to it, adding prominence to the logically placed hour indicators, which is the hallmark of traditional pilot watches. The design imparts a rather fine tool-styled dial that most are going to appreciate. This is because of the use of the right materials, which is important if the markings want to appear properly on the dial. However, Orient loves to simplify things and the thin border of the hands never makes them appear smaller than they actually are. A very good detailing for the price point.
On the wrist, the Orient Flight sits 43mm wide and 12mm thick, the perfect size for any traditional-looking aviation watch. Any smaller or bigger would take away the charm and it is a size that works for the medium to the largest possible of wrists. It’s a watch that Spartans would love to wear; they were never big on amenities and luxury. Neither is the montre orient automatique homme!
