5.0 out of 5 stars a great deal! (2 year review), January 24, 2013

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Orient Men's CEM65005D 'Blue Mako' Automatic Rubber Strap Dive Watch (Watch)
i have 4 of these and i love them.
i also have seikos, citizen ny2300's (miyota mvt.) and an invicta (another miyota mvt.) and i can tell you that these tend to be great right out of the box (meaning that i don't typically need to adjust the hair spring).
for this price, or even twice this price, it's hard not to be impressed.
from my experience, the orients tend to be just as accurate as the miyotas and better than the seiko 5's.
the crystal is plain mineral glass so expect some light scratches in time, but plain mineral glass isn't as brittle as sapphire tends to be- and money must be saved somewhere.
i have noticed that the blue is the only color that has a reflective face. the other colors i have (black, orange,) are just flat colors though they still look fine.
the bezel is still nice and firm on all of them.
i can still see the lume after 7-8 hrs. in bed
the band is a touch uncomfy (stiff) (22mm lug width if you wanna order another) and you may/may not like the shark pic on it.
i use this little trick (mad props to the g-shock folks at w.u.s. for this) to make it more comfy:
*note: this is what i do and it works for me. you do this at your own risk...*
-i remove the band from the watch
-i boil a pot of water and once it's boiling i remove it from the burner.
-once the water is no longer bubbling, i throw the band in the water and stir it for a few minutes.
-i rinse it in cool water
-once it's cool and dry, i put the now-softer band back on the watch and enjoy :)
wrap up:
i can't see how you can go wrong here. you have a great in-house mvt (i.m.o. the best in the under 200 dollar range). and a stellar case with a so-so band all of which should last years and years.
i prefer the mvt. in this watch over seikos in this class (hands down) and to me it's pretty even with the miyota (citizen, ect.).
and btw...
mine ran a little fast after the 2 month break-in (+5/day) and after i adjusted it, it gains about 1 or 2 seconds /day. consistently. way beyond what you should ask from it (i tend to be a tad picky).
hope i helped!
