The XL ORIENT has a FULL Perpetual Calendar which displays the week, month & year besides the day & date!

It has a unique gradient dial & a crystal with rosette faceted edging!

GOOD TO KNOW: The design of the ORIENT Perpetual Calendar is very similar to, if not exactly the same as the WITTNAUER 2000 series of Perpetual Calendar watches. That's because ORIENT manufactured those models for WITTNAUER by contract!
