It goes without saying that the Diver watch has always been at the forefront of our collection. From the Mako and Ray to the Pro Saturation Diver and Mako USA, a number of popular and noteworthy models have helped define our Diver line: an assortment of well built, reliable timepieces that punch well above their weight class. We pride ourselves on the fact that they are made for the every man, from the desk diver to the recreational diver and even the commercial diver. Every year we release a new diver watch, and this year we’re excited to unveil the Orient Triton.
The Triton takes design inspiration from a number of classic divers from our collection. The hour markers take after the Ray, while the brushed steel hands are nearly identical to those on the Pro Saturation Diver. Each hour marker is defined by a thick lume plot that’s surrounded by polished metal, which allows the dial to be visible in both brightness and in darkness. Additionally, the matte dial allows the hour markers and hands to stand out during the day. The bezel features a matte insert, and rotates unidirectional at 120 clicks. Mirroring other higher-end Orient divers, the Triton boasts a date display as well as a nifty power reserve indicator.
The size of the Triton falls between the Mako and past M-Force watches at 43.4mm wide and 13.6mm thick. It bears the “DIVER’S 200M” stamp on the dial and is compliant with the Japanese Industrial Standard (JIS) for a Class 1 Diver watch, making it suitable for recreational SCUBA diving. It is powered by the Orient caliber 40N5A, the same automatic, hand-winding and hacking movement that runs the Pro Saturation Diver.
