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.

Orient GMT Polaris review November 9, 2017
Reviewer: Andrew from Sydney, Australia  
This watch is utterly beautiful; photographs cannot do it justice. It's so beautiful that when I look at it I forget to read the time! The GMT hand works exquisitely. I reckon mine is less than ten seconds fast in 24 hours, within spec and good for any clockwork movement. It's a bit big at 42mm, but lug-to lug it's only 48mm, so it's OK on my 7.5 inch wrist; I'd prefer 40mm. The leather strap is stiff, and very uncomfortable on its padded sections, and unless you brutally break it in, it will not let the watch sit comfortably on your wrist. I swapped it immediately for a navy blue NATO, which I wear in the "down-under" style: the security loop goes under my wrist so no excess length is bunched-up beside the watch. This NATO strap picks up the stunning blue of the hands and I think the  combination is gorgeous. The NATO also minimizes the size of the watch on my wrist and lets it sit comfortably. This is definitely my best Orient, maybe better than my Orient Star.

Most Excellent Watch October 5, 2017
Reviewer: craig bryant from Tennessee  
Love my new watch, the Orient Polaris. GMT, automatic, power reserve indicator, and hacking was my requirements. I am indeed fortunate that my new Orient includes all my requirements and is absolutely beautiful. I would not call this a "tool" watch. I have a gen 1 Orange Monster that is my "tool" Watch.  The Polaris is definitely a looker and fills the needs of a dress watch in my opinion.

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.
