Orient has been announcing new models lately. This time, they added a new model in their Fukkoku series. The new addition is based on a vintage model that was released in 1964, know as ‘Flash’.
Please refer to this site for more info.
According to the site above, the new model runs on a 21-jeweled hand wind movement (Cal. 48440) with stop second feature. The ‘Flash’ feature is of course battery operated and has a battery life of 4 years based on 20 seconds of flash usage per day.
Below is a picture of the original Orient Flash from 1964. You can see that it is similar to the reissue model.
1. Nice watch and would probably attract more lady buyers.
