So what makes a winter watch? Is it water resistance to weather the elements? Is it refined style? Does it have anything but a steel bracelet for the sake of keeping your wrist warm? Maybe a little bit of each. We have a few favorites we’ve been dying to show off.
M-Force AC0L – A “force” to be reckoned with. It is ISO-compliant in not one but THREE disciplines, and features self-winding, hand-winding, and hacking. It is equipped with functionality that is expected of a M-Force watch while featuring the modified in-house caliber F6727 movement. Overbuilt, and ready for the season ahead.
AC00 Version 1 – You cannot go wrong with the original. With its domed crystal and domed dial, it is this model that has since defined the rest of the Contemporary Classic collection. However, the AC00 Version 1 remains distinct in that it has thicker, pointed hour markings and triangular hands, establishing a style that is minimal without looking bare.
Symphony III – The Symphony III sports a familiar design but with a few subtle changes, including an upgraded automatic movement that offers hacking and hand-winding. The signature dauphine hands have been swapped for a spear-tipped set and the chapter ring is now flat against the edge of the case. It is a prime example of where simplicity and functionality work together in harmony.
RA-AC0K Diver – Although the RA-AC0K may boast the same case diameter as the Neptune, it manages to exhibit a slimmer fit on the wrist with a more compact case thickness. In true Orient diver fashion, it showcases powerful, lasting lume on the hands, hour markers, and pip of the bezel. It is available in a wide range of colors and strap options as well.
Retro Future Camera Revival – Combining creativity, nostalgia, and a playful spirit, the Retro Future Camera is for those looking for an impressive, one-of-a-kind design that can be worn with pride for years to come. The caliber F6S22 movement is 24-jeweled and capable of both hacking and hand-winding. The watch manages to strike an easy balance between mid-century aesthetic and cutting-edge modernity with its design.
