ORIENT RA-AR0004S Features
This new watch “Contemporary Semi-skeleton with small second” is introduced in our collection as a new, definitive model to lead the Contemporary collection.
To strengthen the Contemporary collection with semi-skeleton & small second model, we developed the new “Cal. F6S,” which adds the small second function to our standard Cal.F6. This new Caliber perfectly balances each element on the dial – skeleton at 9 o’clock, small second hand at 6 and ORIENT & Lion logo at 12. The semi-skeleton overlapping small seconds sub-dial adds interest and offers a glimpse of the movement of the escape wheel. Also, the dial is double-layered for a deep, three-dimensional look, drawing the eye to the movement of both hour and minute hands. Its 40.8mm size case has a sapphire glass to stage the beauty of the mechanical movement, and RA-AR0004S supports water resistance of 50 meters.

About ORIENT RA-AR0004S
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.
