Although Orient Watch may have the most diverse collection of open heart and semi-skeleton watches, the Eclipse collection is unlike any we’ve ever seen. Its distinct look invokes a sense of machismo and retro-futuristic style. Let’s look closer at the Eclipse, the only open heart model in our Sport line.
Right off the bat, your eyes are drawn to the dial design, which takes on a set of contrasting lines that intersect the watch through the hour markers. Each indented line adds dimension to the dial which you’d normally expect to come from the open heart window on the left side. This intrepid, in-your-face kind of look really stands out against related models. The design is stunningly cohesive, with the fence post hands mirroring the rest of the stainless steel accents in both color and finish. Lume runs around the outer edge of the watch.
The case and bracelet really help complete the retro-futuristic design of the Eclipse. The integrated bracelet features smooth, rectangular brushed steel links that stack one after the other in a line. A thin bezel allows the dial to stretch from end to end of the 40mm case. A scratch-resistant sapphire crystal covers the top side, while the case back prominently displays the engine, a 21 jeweled Orient caliber 46A41.
