The eye-catching blue dial is inspired by the morning – the start of a new day. The design motif of the beautiful blue sky and sea, illuminated by the sun emerging from the horizon, represents the beginning of a day full of energy. The exquisite vertical gradation from turquoise blue to green symbolizes the sky and the sea whose colors are constantly changing from the moment the sun rises.

The Modern Skeleton exudes sportiness with a dual-layered dial consisting of a turquoise blue to green gradation on the upper layer and a green lower layer underneath. 

The fresh use of colors and layered design enhance the uniqueness of these special pieces limited to 1,200 units worldwide. The memorable gradation from turquoise blue to green is also featured on the Semi Skeleton (limited to 850 pieces), as well as the Classic Semi Skeleton which is limited to 400 pieces.

The sunburst finishing on all three models evokes the sun’s rays, while the rose gold color used throughout – such as on the hands and Orient Star logo, the indices on Modern Skeleton and Semi Skeleton, and the crown on the Classic Semi Skeleton, symbolizes the brightness of the morning sun.

The case back is engraved with a limited-edition serial number and comes with both a high-quality stainless steel (SUS316L) bracelet and a blue calf leather strap that further enhances the gradation on the dial, allowing the wearer to change the strap according to preference.
