Orient Tristar (or three star) is also know as Orient Standard. Some say the Tristar line came about in the 1970’s to provide reliable and affordable automatic watches to areas of the world where replacing a battery in a quartz watch was not always possible. These highly affordable automatic (self-winding) watches were designed to pretty much run forever with little or no maintenance. The vast majority of these watches are sized under 40mm in diameter and come on on folded stainless steel bracelets.
The name comes about due to the three stars applied to dial over the word crystal on each model. They all use a 21-jewel Caliber 469 Orient movement (or a variant of the 469). These all wind and operate with the movement of your wrist.
