Here is a series of GMT models under Orient’s Sporty Automatic line.
This watch has an orange GMT hand that features a big arrowhead. The watch has a sporty design with a case diameter of 44mm (excluding crown) which is in line with today’s watch trend. Crystal is curved and has a diameter of 35mm.
The watch is very easy to operate.
Crown at three o’clock sets the time and date. The GMT hand cannot be set independently. It moves when you rotate the crown to set the time.
The watch comes with an inner GMT bezel that can be rotated by turning the crown at 4 o’clock. You set it in conjunction to the GMT hand so that it is showing the time in the second time zone.
Both crowns screw in and are signed with the traditional Orient logo.
Watch also comes with a rotating bezel that rotates in anti-clockwise direction.
One thing I notice about Orient is that they use both solid and see-through casebacks for different watches. I say this because I have been collecting Seiko watches and most of their affordable watches come with see-through casebacks.
This GMT series comes with solid caseback as shown below.

Stainless steel case
One-way rotating bezel
