    ORIENT STAR CONTEMPORARY MODERN SKELETON BLUE

    Fast forward 50 years, in 2019 Orient have just introduced their first premium outdoor watch- the Orient Star Contemporary Modern Skeleton Blue Ref. RK-AV0004L, their modern collection 100m everyday kind of watch with a multi-finished bracelet topping off with a balanced yet intricate sunburst blue dial.

    As we all know, openwork watchmaking is not stranger to Orient Star, they have done so since 1991, and even more significant in October 2003, where Orient Star presented their first-ever semi-skeleton watch - the Orient Star Ref. WZ0011FH.

    For a start, the Orient Star Contemporary Modern Skeleton Blue Ref. RK-AV0004L offers a solid SUS316L stainless steel case. Further, measuring 41mm wide, 12.1mm thick and 48mm lug to lug, paired with a push-pull crown while still bears a decent 100m water-resistant. Since this falls under Orient's premium line, the case gets a byzantine satin-brushed and polished finishing while the back of the watch features full polishing. Even the bezel gets the full high gloss polish treatment tastefully.

    CALIBER F6F44 WITH OPENWORK ESCAPEMENT



    Seen through its flat sapphire crystal, the Orient Star Contemporary Semi-Skeleton goes intrinsically with the design- a sunburst blue background with applied faceted metallic hour markers, with fancy Roman numerals at 12 o'clock for a start. What enlivened Orient Star watches its fan-shaped power reserve indicator at 12'o clock, showing how much juice left on the watch. Thankfully, even while having this complication along with skeletonized cut-outs at 2, 4 to 7 and the main one at 9 o clock to showoff the balance wheel, the legibility on the dial is excellent.

    That said, the legible handset bears the same color tone luminous with those on top of the hour markers, to aid the semi-skeleton dial. Speaking of which, the Contemporary Semi-Skeleton's openwork at 9' o clock showcased their attention to detail by framing it with metallic trim, and high-polished balance bridge for the wearer to indulge when glancing at the time. Lastly, the beautiful sub-second dial is metallic, fitting with the opened work and rest of the applied markers. With it placed at the bottom of the dial, giving it a more balanced look in coherence with the power reserve indicator at the top side.

    GREEN LUMINOUS & DISPLAY CASEBACK


    Displayed through the screw-in casebook, the in-house caliber F6F44 is the top of the line automatic movement that solely fitted on Orient Star timepieces. The Orient Star Diver Blue Power Reserve feature this incredible horology engine. The 24 Jewels, 50-hour power reserve F6F44 Automatic runs at a daily tolerance of +25 to -15 seconds per day, beating at 21,600bph with a power reserve indicator at 12 o'clock (somewhat iconic across the whole Orient Star flagship line), a sub-second display at 6 o'clock, and a visual open-heart at 9 o'clock.

    Pairing the watch case is a well multi-finished solid end link bracelet. Solidly made from SUS316L stainless steel, the bracelet enhances much elegance of the whole watch, while it feels still feel sturdy and fitting. This assures the wearer a safe and secure fitting when strapping the Orient Star Contemporary on the wrist.

    Overall, the Orient Star Contemporary Modern Skeleton Blue Ref. RK-AV0004L feels modern while allowing one to enjoy the impeccable openwork through the dial, and functional while having a delicate balance of Orient's legacy in watchmaking since the 1950s. In the Orient Star line, and though it will not be cheaper than the other entry Orient dress model, it is their"luxury" line watch under its top line. Orient Star Contemporary Modern Skeleton Blue Ref. RK-AV0004L feels sturdy, robust, and well done as anyone could ask of a JDM mechanical watch. Therefore, with the semi-skeletonized watch design paired with a 100m water case clad with its unique Orient Star automatic power reserve caliber and sub-second dial, this watch offers a lot for your money and definitely to collectors, it is one hell of a watch.
