Gray is credible, the color of knowledge, more complex than white or black, perhaps even: more thrilling. And it is the color of a big watch from Glashütte, powered by the highly-praised NOMOS manual caliber Alpha: at 38 millimeters, this Orion cuts a more modern, flatter, and more emphatic figure.
