Orient Kingmaster World Time CFA02003W0

Number Eight in the odyssey is the Kingmaster World Time CFA02003W0 (WZ0051FA in Japan). This is the first of the watches with a 24 hour bezel that rotates counterclockwise as the hands move clockwise. The city bezel is set using the crown at 4 o'clock. The crown at 3 o'clock is screw down. Case diameter is 42mm. Yet again, a solid watch that is easy to wear.

This is a great looking watch. I'm looking to buy my first Orient myself, but find it hard to decide. This one is high on the list, as is the CFT00001B (or 4B). Could you explain how this rotating bezel thing works? Also: is it true that this watch has a hacking movement? Sorry to ask here, but I couldn't find an email address for you.

Firstly, this model does not hack. The 24 hour bezel rotates counterclockwise as the hands move clockwise. By setting the city bezel with the crown at 4 o'clock to line up with the 24 hour bezel you can see the time anywhere in the world at a glance.
