Today, the Orient Classic Quartz Roman Redgold FGW0100EW0 men's watch is exceptional, although its design can be traced back to large clocks in the urban environment of the penultimate turn of the century. Roman hour numerals were found on church, railway station and town hall clocks and, as was common at the time, only with minute and hour hands. However, these clocks were neither in a stainless steel case plated in red gold, nor did they have a date field on the 6 o'clock, and they were certainly not suitable for wearing on the wrist. The two-part dial with raised dial ring is also an extravagance, but one that serves to enhance contrast. The brown leather strap with embossing, which deviates slightly into a copper colour, is again part of the classic appearance. The heart of the Orient Classic Quartz Roman Redgold FGW0100EW0 men's watch, however, is a technical component that only saw the light of day many decades later. The quartz calibre JP600, developed by Seiko, works so precisely that railway station clocks could follow it, even more so the railway station clocks of 100 years ago. The fact that this men's wristwatch is so well built that it can withstand water depths of up to 50 m is a welcome effect, but more a proof of quality than a reason for sporting ambitions.
