Orient Watch, is a Japanese watch brand owned by Seiko Epson. Established as an independent company in 1950, it became a functional subsidiary of Seiko Epson in 2009 before being fully integrated into the company in 2017. Orient primarily markets mechanical watches (self-winding & hand-winding), but it also produces quartz, light-powered (solar) and radio-controlled models. Outside of the main business, the company produces some moving parts and electronic components that are then assembled into Seiko Epson`s electronic devices. The company manufactures all of its movements in-house in Japan
