Orient Polaris Automatic GMT (dual time) with Sapphire Crystal and Power Reserve #DJ05003W

The Orient Polaris is a dual time, GMT watch that gives you the ability to track two different time zones. In addition to the 12-hour hands and dial markers, the chapter ring is a 24-hour scale. A separately adjustable hand (with lumed tip) tracks the second time zone in GMT or military time. The Orient caliber 40P51 automatic movement is self-winding, and it can be hand wound and it has a hacking feature. A handy indicator at 12:00 shows you up to 40 hours of power reserve when fully wound. Date is at the 3:00 position on the dial. And, the dial is gorgeous with its guilloche and concentric grained textures. It gives the watch a little touch of opulence under the scratch resistant sapphire crystal.

The 42mm diameter stainless steel case has a brushed finish with polished accents. On the backside of the watch you will find an exhibition window for viewing the automatic movement. Finally, a rich looking brown alligator grained strap with a matching stainless steel buckle completes the elegant look.

Note: Hacking function means that the sweep or second hand comes to stop when you pull out the crown to set the time. This is useful for setting two or more watches to the exact same time.

Very happy customer June 4, 2017
Reviewer: Joshua Lamb from Australia  
This is my first watch and I am very happy with it. The detail of the dial and the blue hands are even more impressive in person than in photos. The watch is simple to operate and the manual explains everything adequately.

I have not measured the accuracy but I have been wearing the watch for six days and the time still matches my phone. My only complaint is the leather strap was uncomfortable and my wrist size was in between hole sizes. I changed it out for a navy nato strap and it's a perfect match.

Shipping to Australia was problem-free and very fast. Buy with confidence. Hopefully I can hold off for at least a year before buying a second watch.

Fantastic Value June 2, 2017
Reviewer: Chris W. from California, USA  
This was my first Orient in my collection. I was drawn to the blue hands and the fact that it was a GMT. The watch feels very nice in the hands and has a very nice look to it. It definitely feels and looks more expensive than it is. The strap it came on, I wasn't a big fan of, but that is something that can be replaced for under $50 for a variety of different options. Even if you add in the cost of a new strap, this watch is still a great value. Currently mine is running at about +6 seconds a day. It looks great, runs great, and is a watch I highly recommend.

Nice mechanical watch for expedition to Arctic April 5, 2017
Reviewer: Elizabeth from Altadena, CA United States  
Needed a mechanical 24 hr dial watch for a summer expedition to the arctic and the "land of the midnight sun". Watch looks nice, times well and seems to be a good fit for anyone needing to follow 2 time zones  also. Watch is much lighter in weight than the big brands but is also much more affordable. Is a good value for the special application.

Reviewer: Anonymous Person  
I've been looking for this watch for several months, and when it finally became available, I had to pick it up. Shipping was fast, and reasonable. Arrived in perfect condition, and is now a fantastic piece to add to my new collection.
