The final release from the Orient M-Force Titanium line comes in the form of SDV01002B0. This bold, tough piece is sure to help you survive the fall and winter months in style.
The defining feature of the SDV01002B is definitely the yellow chapter ring that runs around the dial. While more conservative individuals would most likely pick up the SDV01001B (without the flair), the SDV01002B does exude a contemporary look that’s more suited for (perhaps) a sartorially inclined person. Aside from the maize yellow chapter ring, the SDV01002B features a matte black dial with luminescent hour indexes and hands, along with a white date window. There is really nothing that shouts ‘legibility’ more than large, defined hour markers and hand set. You’ll also notice that the Orient logo is also matted, which is a unique feature to this M-Force.
The case diameter for this piece is 47mm, which is rather large, yet not surprising from the M-Force collection. The case and bracelet is all fully made of titanium, and the weight difference between it and the rubber strap version (SDV01003B) is actually negligible. The SDV01002B features a stainless steel, 120-click unidirectional bezel as well. The crown is screwed down by design to ensure 200m water resistance. It is ISO certified (ISO 6425) for scuba diving and Orient’s proprietary case structure has earned it antimagnetic and shock-resistant certification (ISO 764 and ISO 1413 certification, respectively). What you’re getting in the M-Force Titanium is a rugged watch with impressive specifications; all the while feather light on the wrist.
The Orient M-Force Titanium retails at $880, but can be had for $616, which is a bargain for not only a fully titanium watch, but a watch that’s ISO certified to at least two more standards than similarly priced watches on the market today.
