There are some really minor hairlines on the larger front parts of the watch, but the watch is "Like New"!
A board with a very nice layout, real quality work from Orient. On the right of the green movement tag, you will find 3J for 3 Jewels, later you will see that those are the gear train jewels. Also typical early quartz movements, a big and easy to adjust regulator capacitor (two headed arrow). A nicely packed chip and a similarly nicely wrapped and screw mounted coil, at least that is what it looked like. But those screws are actually holding the circuit board. The other two screws are the ones of the battery cover. A very clean design of the board and components.
Quartz watches do unfortunately not look as beautiful as this anymore - this is from a time when the manufacturers still took a lot of pride creating their watches, even they were Quartz "only"
And this is the underlying mechanical movement of this "transitional early quartz movement". The engineers during those early quartz years were still thinking "mechanical" and that quartz module was basically popped on top of a mechanical watch. The design structure of this watch are a very good sample for an early quartz movement.
