ORIENT STAR SDV02001W Features
The Orient Star Standard-Date is the first series of watches with the Orient SAR (Super Anti-Reflective) Coating. This technology reduces light reflection by 99% or more by applying anti-reflective coating to both surfaces of the sapphire glass. In addition, it applies multi-layer coating and antifouling films to the anti-reflective coated surfaces. This has made the surfaces resistant to scratches and stains. The result is superior visibility, the most important element of a watch. The simple, sophisticated design with no unnecessary element gives the watches an elegant and tasteful look, making them attractive utility watches that suit a range of settings.
1. The black dial uses a carbon material, while the white dial is stamped to create a stripe pattern. Both dials feature a sense of depth, and the differentially polished three-dimensional index add a touch of class to the watch. The hands and bar index come in the same motif featuring a trapezoidal shape, which has resulted in enhanced readability. The hands feature a simple and smooth form. They come in a classy new design featuring a hairline finish for the top surfaces and mirror surfaces for the slopes.
2. The case is 40 mm, which is larger that those of previous Orient Star models. The large case not only improves visibility but also gives the watch a solid and definite presence. The separate bezel and case are beautifully integrated at the case’s slope, creating an artistic, beautiful form.

About ORIENT STAR SDV02001W
A Star is Born
ORIENT STAR debuted in 1951. The name expresses the aim of creating a timepiece that outshines all others in the universe of mechanical watches. The ORIENT STAR brand continues to live up to its name and captivate watch enthusiasts around the world with genuine mechanical watch excellence. The ORIENT STAR story began with the founding of Tama Keiki Co., Ltd in 1950, rechristened the Orient Watch Co., Ltd. only one year later. After collaborating with Seiko Epson Corporation for over 20 years, the two companies officially merged their business and expertise in 2017. Today Epson’s advanced precision part processing and finishing technologies combine with ORIENT STAR’s passion for authentic quality and craftsmanship to launch a new era of mechanical watches.
History of Orient
Orient Watch is a Japanese watch brand owned by Seiko Epson. Established as an independent company in 1950, it became a functional subsidiary of Epson in 2009 before being fully integrated into the company in 2017.
Until it was absorbed into Epson, the Orient Watch Company had primarily marketed mechanical watches (self-winding & hand-winding), but also produced quartz, light-powered (solar) and radio-controlled models. Outside of the main business, the company produced some moving parts and electronic components that were then assembled into Seiko Epson’s electronic devices.
Currently, Akita Epson Corporation (formally Akita Orient Precision Instruments Co., Ltd.), a group company of Epson, manufactures all of the Orient movements in-house in Yuzawa, Akita, Japan.
