New Sun & Moon Watches for Men and Women

Orient announces today a bunch of new Sun & Moon watches – including a new design for the women's quartz watch, and a new matching reference in the men's semi-skeleton Sun & Moon.

The quartz models now feature a cleaner look than the previous line of women's Sun & Moon watches. Measuring 34.3mm wide and 39.6mm long, with a thickness of 8mm and 16mm lug width, these are classically and symmetrically styled.

Four references will be available. Reference RN-KB0002A features a rose-gold plated case and a white dial with a texture that Orient refers to as "butterfly shell". Ref. RN-KB0003S has a more standard white dial, and yellow-gold plated case. Ref. RN-KB0004A features a very attractive blue dial, again with the "butterfly shell" texture.

Finally, reference RN-KB0005E features a green dial and comes on a bracelet – as opposed to the leather strap attached to the other three variants. This one is limited to 700 units.

All four references feature mineral glass crystal, 30m water resistance, and cost a little under 300 USD.

In addition to the above, Orient also presented a new variant of the men's open-heart Sun & Moon, featuring a green dial – reference RN-AS0104E, limited to 1,500 units. With its gold-toned hands and markers, it is specially designed to pair up with the limited-edition women's model.

Like its siblings, this open-heart automatic is equipped with Orient's caliber F6L24. Its case is 41.5mm wide without the crown, 47mm long, 13.8mm thick, and has a 20mm lug width – into which, in this version, a stainless steel bracelet is fitted. Price is around 450 USD.

The blog's first impression, based on the official photos and info: looking good! This time, Orient gives its female customers a very attractive offering. And the matching semi-skeleton piece looks pretty good too with the green dial.
