However, do not expect any intricate and elaborate decorations as in the most higher-end, expensive automatics.
The 46B40 caliber Orient automatic movement doesn’t allow hacking or hand winding but its automatic winding system is so efficient that you don’t need to. It just takes a few shakes to get it running from dead stop (in any case you keep it off-wrist for more than 40 hours) and shall work for a long time without any significant issue.
