Orient Star Launches 4 New Modern Skeleton Dials

Black Orient Star Modern Skeleton Watch

Orient Star has unveiled four new Modern Skeleton models to mark the 10th anniversary of the launch of the first Modern Skeleton collection.

Popular for its cutting-edge, contemporary design that shows part of the mechanical movement through the dial, these new models have moved away from the stately colour scheme that the Modern Skeleton is known for, and now have a more stylish look that colour coordinates the dial with the bezel and case.

Since 2014 the Modern Skeleton has been a bestseller around the world for Orient Watches with the previous models having blue, green and brown-coloured dials contrasted with the case to emphasise the watch face. However, the tones of the new dial colours complement the metallic textures of the case as well as other parts of the watch. This creates a new aesthetic and visual harmony between the dial with its bold open work at 9, 2 and 6 o-clock and the mechanical movement which is clearly visible underneath as well through the see-through exhibition caseback.

At the heart of the new Modern Skeleton collection is an automatic mechanical in-house calibre F6F44 movement, giving stable accuracy of +25 seconds to -15 seconds per day and a power reserve of 50 hours. It is housed in a 41mm stainless steel case with a sapphire crystal ant-reflective coating and fitted with a 21mm wide stainless steel trifold bracelet with deployant buckle and push button release and is water resistant to 100 metres.

The four new dial colours are silver, ivory, champagne and black, which bring a contemporary, stylish look to the Modern Skeleton. The silver-coloured dial visually ties together the stainless steel bezel and case to create a uniform, single-toned look, while the champagne and ivory dials provide a nice contrast to the stainless steel case and bracelet while complementing the yellow gold or pink gold-coloured bezels.

The 10th anniversary all-black model is available in a limited edition of just 600 pieces, with all four timepieces available to purchase from Orient Watches official UK website with prices starting from £794.99.
