ORIENT RA-AC0N03E Features
This second release from the latest M-FORCE generation is designed for adventuring outdoors. Sturdiness and toughness are integrated into every design detail, having a distinctive bidirectional compass bezel and a large protection shield that guards the rotating bezel and the huge crown from rocks and other hazards. The unique dial is protected by sapphire crystal glass for superior scratch resistance. The distinctively shaped indices are inspired by off-road tyre treads, blocks and stencils. The tips of the hands and the dented indices feature high intensity Luminous Light that charges with light for high visibility at night. Not only look tough, but the movement is also shock resistant. The in-house automatic caliber F6727 features various devices against shocks: a movement holder to reduce horizontal shifting and secure stability when the watch is subjected to external shocks, a boost up spring to protect from vertical shifting, and a collet to reduce shock-induced displacement of the hair spring attached to the balance wheel.

About ORIENT RA-AC0N03E
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.
