Our post-Thanksgiving release is a double release! We now present the newest additions to the Orient Guardian collection: the FFT03004B0 and FFT03001B0. There’s very little spec-wise that separates the two, but both are completely different in regards to style. And that’s a very good thing.
Both models feature Orient’s signature red and black color motif in the dial. Various Arabic text in the dial and chapter ring are highlighted in red. The power reserve hand seconds hand tip are also dipped in candy red as well. The FFT03004B features the natural stainless steel color in the case, the hand set and various accents throughout the dial. The dial is made of a lacquered black dial that has a very subtle sun ray effect. The FFT03001B on the other hand glimmers in rose gold tone, which in the right lighting conditions resembles a smooth bronze. The reflection from the rose gold accents illusions the dial to be brighter and browner, even though it is the same color black as the FT03004B. The FT03001B features a black, IP coated case. The open heart window and exhibition case back are added bonuses for the wearer.
Both models are 47.5mm in size, which makes them among the larger of the models available from Orient. Each watch features a grooved stationary bezel with exposed screws for a sporty, masculine effect. The case is rated for 100m water resistance which is reinforced with a screwed down crown that’s diamond cut for improved grip. Both watches are mounted on croc printed leather strap with a buckle that matches the accent metal color. The Orient Guardian uses Orient’s in house caliber 46R40, which is fully decorated.
The stainless steel model (FFT03004B) is priced at $540, and the rose gold tone model (FFT03001B) is priced at $570. They can be purchased for $378 and $399 respectively after using code ‘winter2013’ at check out.
