Orient Radio Controlled Perpetual Calendar MA VY00

A quick post today of a watch I've been trying unsuccessful to fix.

The watch is by Orient Watch Company who are one of Japan's largest producers of mechanical watches. The company started in 1950 but is now a subsidiary of Seiko Epson.

It is a 3 hand dial watch with no other windows. Inside it's simple exterior is a more complicated watch. The watch has a perpetual calendar, so is correct throughout the months. There is a set of markers around the centre that goes up to 31, so pressing one of the buttons will show the date. It is also radio controlled on the Japanese 40KHz frequency to keep it on track.

The full model number seems to be MA VY00-C0 CA.
