MATERIAL/ DIMENSION

Firstly, we will talk about the materials of this amazing watch. Similar to most dive watches, the Orient Triton also sports a stainless steel case construction. On top of that, the Oyster style bracelet also features stainless steel. As for the protective crystal, Sapphire glass is used.

For added protection and comfortability, the Sapphire glass is using an anti-reflective coating. As for the dimensions, the diameter of the stainless steel case is 43 mm. Being 43mm diameter with full stainless steel case and bracelet, this watch is quite handy for some people. However, this will be the perfect watch if you like something weighty.

 

MOVEMENT/ ENGINE

 

The Orient Trition is using Orient’s own Caliber 40N5A. We will try to summarise this movement as we have very limited information about it. In general, this is an automatic 3-Hand movement with other complications. One of the complications is a date window located on the 4 o’clock position.

On the other hand, this movement also features a very nice 40-hour power reserve indicator located between 12 and 3 o’clock on the dial. Other information about this movement including the hacking function. In case you do not know, a hacking function is very common in most watches nowadays. Essentially, it means that the minute and hour hand stop when you pull the crown to adjust the time.

 

SURFACE IMPRESSIONS

 

The first impression, we love the Orient Triton 200m diver. In fact, we believe that a diver’s watch should not only look sexy like the Orient Triton but also be packed with functions. One of the first standout features of this watch is the deep dark blue Uni-directional bezel. It has a total of 120 clicks and spins in one direction, minute and index markers decorate the deep blue bezel.

Also, the Triton uses the exact same hour markers consisting of circles, triangles, and rectangles, exactly like the Seiko Tuna watches. In fact, the watch hands used is the exact same, with the shape overall being an arrow shape hands. The luminous material is also added to the hour markers and watch hands for visibility.

However, the power reserve indicator really stands out. In fact, we love the indicator because it resembles the fuel-meter on our car, with the indication of 20 hours or less highlighted in red. Other notable features include the large and noticeable crown at the 4 o’clock position, which can be hacked.

At the back, you can see the Orient logo carved on the case back, giving the watch a personality. On top of that, the logo is also found on the tri-fold clasp surface and also a colorized version on the blue/ black dial.
