[SOLD] 1980s Vintage Orient AAA Crystal "General"

Orient AAA Crystal "General"
Circa 1980s

I'm grumbling here, but whoever knows how to date an Orient properly let me know. There's not a lot of information online and I've not been able to get a proper dating method in anywhere. But by the looks of this case and its condition, I can safely estimate it at 1980s or newer.

Anyway, WHO LIKES GOLD (paint)?

This guy is a decked for glory, its coat of gold paint nay a sign of fray. The three stars add to the prestige, as I know there are the 2-star and 1-star variation of the watch.

The textured dial sets itself apart from the rest of the very shiny watch, offering a good backdrop for the grand presentation of polished stars, logo, hands and matte gold case and bracelet. 

This watch lets the color do the talking. And so will I.
