The Stingray can certainly be considered as a relic from the past, and was model that was instantly sold out as soon as it was released. It was praised for its simple, functional design, and how easy it was to wear on any given day. After a brief hiatus, the Stingray is back for Spring/Summer 2016, and offered in two additional colorways.
The Stingray packs the functionality of a standard sport watch with the shimmer and elegance found in luxury timepieces. The bezel and hour markers are mirror polished, while the lugs and crown guards are brushed. This provides the watch with an ample amount of shimmer without being blinding in the light. The dial layout is straight-forward as well, with bar hour markers, fence post-shaped hands and a 60-count outer ring to make time telling that much easier. Lume is applied on each hour marker and all three hands for low light visibility.
The case size for the Stingray is 42mm, an approachable size for pretty much any wrist. The see-through case back features a tinted glass, which provides even more personality to the venerable Orient Caliber 46943, a reliable workhorse automatic movement that’s been powering many of our watches for more than 40 years. A majority of the Stingray models in this collection come equipped with a rubber strap, and considering that it has a more than adequate 50m water resistance, this should be the watch on your wrist while you sit back and lounge poolside. Available in black and white dials on stainless steel bracelet or rubber strap, in addition to IP black and a subtle forest green shade.
