    ORIENT STAR CONTEMPORARY STANDARD BLACK

    Seen through its flat sapphire crystal, the Orient Star Contemporary Standard goes intrinsically with the design- an evergreen black background with applied faceted metallic hour markers for a start. Associating with some elegancy, Orient Star applied huge Roman numerals at the 12 and 6 o'clock. 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 a date display at 3, the legibility on the dial is excellent.

    That said, the handset bears the same color-tone luminous with the hour markers to aid the already legible dial. Lastly, the Orient Star logo with additional "automatic" is placed at the bottom of the dial, giving it a more balanced look in coherence with the power reserve indicator at the top side.
