Classified as a Sporty Automatic, The Orient model ER2A004D watch stands out because of its rather unique dial. Instead of numbers from 1 to 12, the watch features numbers from 0 to 60 and a sub-dial that features numbers from 1 to 12. The Orient ER2A004D which is from the selection of Orient Automatic Sports Men’s watches is simple and futuristic at the same time. Simple because it displays the time and the date and has no chronograph, futuristic because the dial makes it look like something out of an aircraft control panel. In fact, when folks see the Orient automatic diver watch with its type B aviator dial on your wrist, they might probably imagine you to be a pilot.
