1970s Vintage Orient 46941 Duo Calendar "Sky"

Orient 46941 Duo Calendar "Sky"
Circa 1970s

This is the fourth of the the Orient Duo Calendar watches that I have for purchase.

But unlike its cousins, Sky comes delivered in stainless steel bracelet, and offers a dressier approach to the Duo Calendar series of watches. 

The Duo Calendar watches offer a complete desk calendar experience for the user, who is able to adjust and view the corresponding days of the week by turning the crown at 4'O. The current day and date are displayed in a window at 3'O and the Japanese calendar is shown down at 6. 

The watch wears large on the modern wrist, and will be a good addition for those looking for something a little different from the usual three-handers. While legibility might become an issue given the busy dial, the additional details that are not common among mechanical watches would be worth the trade-off.
