That original Mako was worn and beaten to within an inch of its life. I wore it everywhere, for all occasions and circumstances, and it showed by the time I gave it away to someone who badly needed a watch. It had been through the ringer, looked like a battlefield artifact, but kept on ticking and keeping very accurate from-the-factory time at about +3s/day.
Well, I recently decided that it was time to get a Mako again now that the Mako II is out. Mako II keeps the unique dial styling, narrow bezel, serious water resistance, and basic feel while adding hacking and hand-winding.
It was a joy to open this up and see a brand new Mako once again, and this one is also eerily accurate at about the same level, straight from the factory. And I liked it so much now that I am a more serious watch hobbyist that I have invested more in it—I have added a domed sapphire crystal and a high-end bracelet from Strapcode with screwed links, solid end links, and a forged chamfer clasp. It now competes in every way with much, much more expensive watches, while having that amazing "Mako look."
All of which is to say that this watch is a modern classic and a fabulous value at this price. Stock, it keeps incredibly accurate time for a mechanical watch, swims with the best day-to-day divers out there, runs forever and holds up amazingly well, and looks unique, elegant, and also just a bit aggressive, all at the perfect size (41mm wearing a tad small—not too large, not to tiny for just about any wrist). And beyond stock, because of the popularity of the Orient Mako/Ray platform, it is now also a great base for a higher-end "project watch" if you want to go that route.
If I was advising someone on a "first serious watch" to spend money on—a first watch purchase beyond a Timex—I think this would be my absolute strongest recommendation. "Get an Orient Mako II and wear it with joy—everywhere and in every circumstance. It'll serve you well."
If you own more than one automatic watch, the problem is, when you switch watches, you have to shake it a lot to bring it up to speed so it keeps good time. They make automatic winders, as seen near the beginning of the Dr. Strange movie. But, for me, that over-complicates things, in a bad complication way. So, this watch uses the F69 calibre (mechanism) designed by Orient (Seiko owns part of Orient). The F69 has 22 jewels and is capable of self-winding (automatic), hand winding (You turn the crown, yourself.), and hacking (Pull the crown all the way out and the second hand stops). Now, I have some lovely watches, many are Orient, so I hate to see them languish in my watch box. Therefore, I do not wear this beauty every day. Sometimes, by the time I wear it again, it has wound down. All I have to do is unscrew the crown (which has the Orient logo on it...nice) and wind clockwise. So I can get the winding up to speed immediately. The steel bracelet is very nice polished and brushed, and this is a "Dive" watch, good to 200 meters (If you remember to screw down the crown), but not really recommended for real diving. Water sports, snorkeling. Orient makes a Ray watch. It has bars for indices, whereas this watch, the Mako II, has numbers at 6, 9, and 12. Date and day at 3 o'clock. Easy to set. I bought this from Long Island Watch as opposed to buying from Long Island via Amazon, because the blues showed up after a long absence, and Amazon didn't have them. Charge the watch face with a strong light, and it glows nicely in the dark. Very good one-direction bezel. Nuff said. Highly recommended. Snatch up one of these blue ones while you can.
Update: I took away a star. The spring bar on the hollow end is a bad design. The spring bar is also too thin. I have replaced the spring bars four times because they bend so easy. Cheap repair, but annoying. Still love the watch.
Cons: 1. the crown is too small making it hard to unscrew. 2 the watch diameter is a bit small for those used to a big timepiece on their wrist. 3. The bezel is tight and hard to turn. 4. The band catch looks like it will fail before too long with everyday use
Overall it’s a nice watch and the pros outweigh the cons in my opinion.
