Black Mako: a power watch on your hand.,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Orient Men's Black Mako XL Automatic Dive Watch CEM75001B (Watch)
A typical description of the watch is: Orient automatic self-wind mech watch, solid screw in case (no transparent metal back, with Orient glyph on it), 60 clicks counter-clockwise one-way bezel with 60 to 10 minute points and rest in 5 mins interval markings, water resistant to 200M with flat crystal front, plus date and day in three laguages.
With a mini button on 10' that I'm sure you did not noticed (or you never thought this would be for changing the day (!!) and not some helium valve or something like this)
This watch has a character. The weight is indeed serious, and you really know you're wearing a good watch (which, by the way, did not cost you a fortune). The phosphorous is quite bright on all minute markings as well as on the hands, which (except of the seconds one) have a characteristic pointing arrow ending that I'm in love with.
As stated above, the little button outside the watch (at 10') is being used to change the day (Monday, Tuesday etc..) and when I realised that I thought.. Oh !! Now every time I push the little sucker the day will change! But it proved that it is not in the way so the days are intact (actually, is much more handy rather than unscrewing the right button from the bezel and trying to understand how many millimeters exactly should be out to change the day.. ) The general look and feel of the watch is superb and you will definetely feel that you are wearing a 5000$+ watch - it is a good dress watch and I wouldn't recommend to wear it in diving, although the 200M mark is accurate.
As for type, the CEM75001B is a true Orient: solid stainless steel bracelet marked "Orient" (with the usual coat of arms of Orient), screwed down crown and screw caseback (6 points of contact). The metal of the watch is identical with the bracelet and is mat (not flashy silver-ish) which adds to the watch value. Diameter is 45mm and lug width is 22mm. Please note the dot on the seconds hand (the previous model has had a red arrow seconds hand that made it look sporty - this one is brilliantly match the hour and minute hands and makes it real eye candy)
