Orient Retro Future Camera Revival Collection

Orient releases three new models of its Retro Future Camera watch as it celebrates its 70th anniversary this year. Available since May, and full of charming features inspired by the classic 1950s rangefinder cameras, Orient has recreated a popular retro mechanical design that is sure to appeal to enthusiasts.

T

he Retro Future Camera blends the functionality of a mechanical watch with highly original design elements. The new Revival Collection models introduce modern features to the original Orient Star Retro Future Camera watch that was launched in 2005 and has continued to be extremely popular amongst its many fans across the world.

In a digital age, the Retro Future Camera casts the image of a mechanical camera on a mechanical watch. As a modern twist on the original, it retains many of its features including the dial, inspired by a camera’s lens aperture blades; the bezel, mimicking an aperture ring; and the crown and crown guard, reminiscent of a winding lever; and the square top of a camera cover.

“In a digital age, the Retro Future Camera casts the image of a mechanical camera on a mechanical watch.”

True to its name, the colouring of the Retro Future Camera conjures a nostalgic midcentury atmosphere. In addition to black, the watch is available with green and brown dials. The latter two models have a matte dark grey case and a pull-through leather strap suggesting the leather case covering the camera body. These give modern touches to the unique retro style.

New design touches further enhance the camera-like design, such as the case back that simulates a viewfinder.
