Ladies first - a new line-up of women's models have been announced, essentially smaller (30.5mm in diameter) versions of the men's classic semi-skeleton models. They come on either leather or steel bracelet, and are fairly elegant, and reasonably priced at around $450 USD.
Next up, are a few new versions of the recently slimmed-down models, the slim semi-skeleton and slim date. The more interesting ones, pictured below, are the limited edition slim-date, in deep blue, ref. RK - HK0004L, and the Prestige Shop model in deep reddish-brown, ref. RK-HJ0006B. Interestingly, Orient mention these models' cases are Zaratsu polished (yep, like Grand Seiko).
Orient also introduce some new color combinations for their familiar line of "contemporary skeleton" models. This one, ref. RK-AV0010E, is interesting - with a dark green dial, some golden elements, black PVD case, and limited to 500 pieces.
Orient point out the difference in the new models, compared to old "open heart" models - the view into the movement does look much better with the new caliber F6T22.
