A classic looking watch with a few modern twists, including a semi-domed crystal and an exquisite open heart dial design.
The Orient Watch collection is known for being one of the few that features such an array of semi-skeleton and open heart designs. The Esteem is a shining example, and features an open heart dial design. An open heart design allows the wearer to watch the balance wheel swing back and forth. The pulsation of the balance wheel is akin to that of a beating heart, which makes sense because the balance wheel of a mechanical watch is part of the process that makes the watch tick.
The Esteem features a very simple design and layout, with elegant baton hour markers (or Arabic numerals) and dauphine hands that make way for the open heart display on the left side of the watch. The watch features a slightly domed crystal, which provides a slight magnification of the dial features. The watch measures in at a modern and very accessible 41mm, a size that should welcome wrists of all sizes.
