Product Description

Orient

With its roots dating back to 1901, Orient Watch has specialized in the manufacture and growth of mechanical timepieces. Since 1950, Orient has been at the forefront of the production of mechanical watches in Japan. When it comes to watchmaking, Orient does not have an obscure history: Orient has been producing mechanical watches for more than 60 years. It is one of the top three watch manufacturers from Japan and produces 2 million watches per year. Frankly, it may be the biggest watch brand you’ve never heard of. All of Orient’s movements are exclusively made in Japan and no iteration in manufacturing is outsourced. The implicit value of possessing an Orient watch is that the only way to enjoy its tremendous quality is through ownership.

Japan





Orient prides itself on the premise that its timepieces are a “watchmaker’s watch”-- a no frills mechanical watch that is robust and trustworthy.

        
  • Our online reputation suggests that an Orient watch is reliable out of the box. This can be attributed to Orient’s undying dedication to mechanical watches.
  •     
  • In the eye of the Quartz Revolution in the 1970s, the other top Japanese brands went on to predominantly manufacture quartz, while Orient remained focused on its mechanical movements. And while Orient does produce quartz watches, all movements are supplied by its parent company.
  •     
  • So what’s the difference between quartz and mechanical? Despite the obvious difference in moving parts, the short answer is seen in the smooth sweeping second hand of a mechanical watch versus the choppy tick of a quartz movement.
Mechanical Movement



As an in-house movement producer, Orient joins a short list of watch companies that actually manufacture their movements in-house and exclusively for their own use. In the industry, it is highly uncommon that a company produces their own movements in-house, and by doing so Orient Watch can ensure that the quality of their wristwatches are held to the highest standards— Orient’s watches have often been lauded for their rich styling, dependability, and tremendous value.

    The Orient Mako has a great reputation among watch fans and it deserves to be a more widely known brand to the public at large. This watch, the "entry level" Orient, does many things well and is a wonderful introduction to the brand.

    Orient is a small Japanese company that is partially owned by Seiko. They've been around for more than 50 years, and their claim to fame is that they are a mechanical watch producer that designs and makes 100% of their movements in-house. The in-house designation is significant as it means the company does more than just buy off the shelf designs but rather is directly involved in creating and tuning the mechanical heart of their product. Rolex is know for their in-house work, but even such costly brands as Omega, TAG Heuer, and Breitling have most of their movements made for them by other companies (ETA for the most part). To have a finely crafted automatic watch in this price range that has been designed and manufactured by the seller is rare to say the least. The watches are also hand made, and in Japan as well.

    As mentioned this is an automatic watch. The watch cannot be hand wound so you need to shake it to start it, and then it winds itself as you move your arm during the day - no batteries needed. The timekeeping is a tad less precise than a quartz, and for this movement (Orient's 469) the manufacturer states you can normally expect to lose up to to 20 seconds slow or fast each day. (More on this later.) Two related points: if you want to keep reasonably accurate time, you need to reset your watch every week or so, and if you are utterly sedentary during the day (i.e. drive to work, sit at a desk, drive home, sit in front of the TV) the watch may not get enough winding to stay working.

    I've got a few other Orient watches, so I've been aware of the brand for a while. I was recently in the market for a new dive style watch to replace an aging Seiko and I decided to give the Blue Mamo a try after reading so many positive reviews.

    The watch arrived quickly and my first impressions were very positive. The blue face is very deep and seems to change colors depending on the light. It can range from almost black to iridescent blue. The bezel is a nice deep blue enamel that matches the dial nicely.

    The bracelet is very nice for a watch in this price range, it's all solid stainless links, but where the bracelet joins the watches' lugs it is just a folded link, not a solid link. The folder over clasp works well and is very secure. I have a large wrist and the bracelet has plenty of length for me. Positive marks to Orient for making the bracelet long enough for a big wrist (one of my Orient's with a leather band is too short for comfort on my wrist, so I was a little worried about this watch). My other nit with the bracelet is that the links do scratch fairly easily. It's not a huge issue as the bracelet is subtly brushed, but it will scratch if you bang it on a desk or other hard surfaces.

    The bezel is unidirectional, but like other reviewers have written it's VERY tight. My example takes two hands to turn, but it does turn. I'm hoping that it will losen up a little with more use.

    The performance of my watch has been good. I don't have it down to seconds fast/slow per day, but it's been fine. An automatic watch is never going to be as accurate as a quartz watch. So far I've not had any issues with it making me late (or early) for any appointments.

    The lume on the watch is nice and bright - a green color.

    I have owned this watch for approximately 2 months now. I was hesitant to buy an Orient watch, mainly because I had never heard of the company. However, after a thorough search of user reviews, Orient stood out as offering an excellent watch for the money.

    Pros:
    -Awesome dial color. Classy design. Looks like a Sub homage, but with some distinctive design tweaks.
    -Easy to read, dial is very clear.
    -Has a nice weight to it. Fit and finish is very nice. Does not feel cheap.
    -It wears well in numerous settings. Its dressy enough for a shirt and tie, but causal enough to wear with shorts and a teeshirt.
    -Keeps excellent time for an automatic (about 2+ per day)
    -Very efficient, I wear the watch 10 hours, five days a week, and it has not stopped.

    Cons
    - I "feel" the movement of this watch more so than other automatics I have owned. Some people won't see this as a con.
    - The bracelet is comfortable, but it is not as substantial as the watch itself.
    - Not a sapphire face

    Overall, I am very impressed with the watch. It wears very comfortably and looks great!

    (One month ownership review added Feb 21 below!)

    Orient was a brand that I was familiar with from years ago based on their name. However, I was not aware of their In-house based production of really good automatic watches until I started investigating here on Amazon and on the net in general. Pretty soon, it was evident that the Mako was a bit of a legendary timepiece and got rave reviews in forums and also here on Amazon. In short, about a week ago I placed my order on Amazon for the Blue Mako and today, about one hour ago I got it to my door by UPS.

    Packaging:

    The actual watch box comes in the usual Amazon box with bubble wrap for protection. The outer, white Orient box was without damage. Inside the white box is the beautiful Orient black box with a metal badge with the Orient logo. Opening it, the watch sits securely on a white pillow with all plastic and paper protection intact on the band and clasp as well. In the box is also the guarantee and instructional booklets.

    The watch:

    First impression, the watch simply looks stunning! No pictures or videos I have seen online can justify how good it looks in person. Taking it off the pillow and holding it, it feels nice and heavy like a quality watch should. Many reviewers has praised the blue dial and I have to agree. It has a dark shimmer and in dim lighting appears almost black. Turning it slightly towards any light source, the deep blue colour comes through beautifully. Everything on the dial is clear and well proportioned and looks really classy and high quality. It is actually hard to believe that I am looking at a 119 dollar watch! Owning several watches including an IWC Ingenieur automatic with white dial (price around 8000USD) the Blue Mako holds its own amazingly in comparison.
