The Orient Star Retrograde is now available from Orient Watch USA in an exquisite rose gold tone (DE00003B). But let’s take a look at what truly sets it apart from its stainless steel counterparts.
The rose gold tone is very, very elegant, and admittedly one of the best rose gold tone men’s pieces from Orient to date. Its pairing with the black dial really enunciates the glimmer and lavishness of the rose gold color. The dial features same color accents that glimmer in the light and truly makes the watch look more than what it actually costs. We’re definitely fans of the comfortable brown calf-skin leather band. Unlike other leather bands on the market, this one is one of few where you can put on the watch for the first time and it will be as comfortable as the thousandth time you wear it. You will not have to break it in. Similar to the other leather watches (like the Explorer and the Vintage), this particular Retrograde piece features a deployment clasp in full rose tone to complete this timeless look. Priced at only $1,390, its definitely a lot of watch, for very little money.
