Famous watch brand Orient's new edition underscores a symbol of Hanoi and Vietnam's sovereignty over Spratly and Paracel archipelagoes.
Orient is the first foreign watch designer to incorporate such Vietnamese symbols.
This special Vietnam edition will mark the 1,010th anniversary of the foundation of the capital Thang Long, now called Hanoi, in 2020, a release from the company says.
The watch face is graced by Khue Van Cac, the Constellation of Literature pavilion inside the Temple of Literature in Hanoi, Vietnam's first national university. In 2012, this pavilion was named an official symbol of the capital city.
The icon also graces the VND100,000 currency note. Orient's new design also affirms Vietnam's sovereignty over the Truong Sa (Spratly) and Hoang Sa (Paracel) islands in the East Sea with a detailed map engraved on its back.
