Is it the CEM7500, "New Mako" or "Hogrider?"
We need to reach a consensus on what the CEM7500 series should be called. That's why this time around for the Name That Watch contest, the CEM7500 series is up for renaming by Orient fans.
If you're unfamiliar with our Name That Watch contest, let's catch you up.
Orient has been involving our fans in coming up with creative names for a number of Orient watch series. For each contest, we award the winner with a FREE watch from the renamed collection and use the winning name on Orient Watch's official U.S. website.
Past winning names include the "Orient Metro," "Orient Sky" and "Orient Classic."
This time around, we're looking for a creative name for the Orient CEM7500 series of automatic watches, which retails for $250.
Here’s what's great about the CEM7500 series:
- In-house Orient 469 movement
- 200m water resistance
- Stainless steel case
- Unidirectional bezel
- 46mm diameter
- Excellent lume
Where did “CEM7500” come from?
All Orient watch models have a combination of letters and numbers in their name, which correspond with identifiable properties, such as the color of a watch. This system is also very helpful in identifying everything from the particular movement to the type of bracelet.
Sure, a name like “CFT00004B” helps explain a watch’s “DNA” (if you know the codes). But model names like these aren't very approachable for the average person. In fact, even before our Name That Watch Contest, some Orient fans decided to ignore the model numbers all together and start using their own nicknames, such as the Orient “Mako.”
