Discount Watch Store is proud to be an authorized retailer of Orient watches. Orient watches is a Japanese watchmaker and was founded in the city of Hino, in 1950. In 1951, Orient made their first timepiece called the “Orient Star”, which was an immediate hit when it was first put on sale. Orient watches are a part of the ‘Big Three’ in Japanese watchmaking, with Citizen and Seiko making up the other parts of the triumvirate. Orient’s history goes back to 1901, when Shogoro Yoshida opened Yoshida Watch Shop in Ueno, Taito, in the heart of Tokyo, Japan. Orient Watch Company is known today for creating cheap, affordably priced mechanical, and self-winding watches. Today, the brand is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Seiko Epson Corporation.
Orient crafts timepieces in stainless steel, and in black, gunmetal, gold, and rose gold ion plating. Some models are also offered in titanium. Orient Watch Company specializes in dressy watches, with some collections for diving, and others with aviation themed looks. Their watches are always legible while carrying complications like chronographs, power reserve indicators, and GMT’s.
