5.0 out of 5 stars One of Best Watches I Own, April 28, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Orient Men's CEM65005D 'Blue Mako' Automatic Rubber Strap Dive Watch (Watch)
I have heard a lot about this watch and just had to have one. I had one person say the bezel was hard to turn. Well use it a while and it is actually smoother than my Rolex GMT Master and that is a fact. The night illumination is on par or better than the Seiko Orange Monster and time can be clearly seen all night long.

I believe the rubber strap with the Blue Mako Shark on it looks better and is more functional than the steel watch band model.

The in-house 21 jewel movement keeps great time and is on par with the Seiko 5 movement.

The watch face is beautiful and looks even better than the Omega Seamaster for my taste.

It is very useful with the 200 meter water resistance as a dive watch and with the bezel great for other activities like aviation which require a good functional bezel. The one way bezel prevents it from being accidentally turned after set for timing.

Good day of week and date windows.

If you have a chance and the money to purchase one do not hesitate. I have over 70 watches last count from great Timexes to Rolex and this is a great watch period.

Thanks for your great review! I just placed my order...I need a good watch for work and play that's waterPROOF. I'm replacing my Momentum M-1 with this Orient. I LOVE the momentum and have been to the bottom of pools for extended periods of time (breathing apparatus) and snorkeled all over Kauai, HI with the Momentum...BUT it has a battery. I hate constantly having to replace batteries! I've started to enjoy my Seiko 5, but it's not waterproof and has a cheap steel band...so I bit the bullet and got this watch. (I did have an Invicta mid-size auto, but the crystal popped off of it..bummer!) I can't wait. I wish I'd have ordered yesterday, because with the free one-day shipping...I have to wait until Monday to get the watch. Anticipation..is...making me wait. I expect that after Monday, this watch won't be leaving my wrist. :)
