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.

    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.

    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.

    Great looking and functional watch. I replaced the strap with a Fluco Germany 22mm Black Silicone Rubber strap. I love this watch!

    Love the watch but the bezel seems to be lightly painted, and normal wear started rubing it off: a shame !

    I've had the Orient Mako in Blue for only a little over a week, so I can't attest to its longevity, yet. However, I am pretty enamored with this thing, so far.

    It presents beautifully and elegantly. It has a quality feel to all its components and appears to be a far more expensive watch than its price tag would suggest.

    I opted for the Rubber version but can't say I dig the stock band much (I don't care for the distracting blue dolphin logo), so I swapped it for an inexpensive Modena band with the brick pattern and white stitching. It looks remarkable.

    The blue face plays with whatever light is available and changes hue and tone, appearing almost inky black at times and then iridescent and jewel-like at others. Quite attractive.

    As for keeping time, so far, it appears very well within acceptable tolerances, for a mechanical watch. It looks like mine is losing about 3 seconds a day.

    The only thing I might find to gripe about is negligible when considering the $100 price I paid for such a nice piece: I wish the watch were hackable ... that is, to stop the seconds hand when you set the time. In this price range, though, I haven't found any other automatic watch that has this feature and, arguably, it's largely irrelevant anyhow. Keep an eye on the minutes hand, adjust it every nine or ten days and you'll never be more than 30 seconds off the atomic clock. How accurate do you really need your watch to be, anyhow? Some of Orient's more expensive mechanical watches feature the hacking mode. I've also got a Seiko 5 SNZG15 which is in a similar price point. Like the Orient, it's an excellent value and, likewise, doesn't feature a hacking automatic movement, either.

    The lumes are decent ...

    Pros:
    Low priced automatic with an in house movement.
    I received my Blue Mako quickly from the seller.
    Fit and finish are very good. Great color on the blue dial.
    Rubber strap is quite comfortable.
    I regulated the watch and now it runs at 2.5 sec per day fast.
    Upon opening the case the inside of the case back has printed on it Hong Kong. No lies here.
    The dial says Japan Movt. on it and the rotor says Japan on it also. So the movement is made in Japan.

    Cons:
    Day and date do not center perfectly in the window.
    Was running 20 sec fast per day, I had to open and regulate the movement.

    Overall: Orient Mako is not really a copy or a homage of anything. It stands as it's own design.
    Orient seems to have a genuine honest approach to letting you know what you are buying from them unlike a lot of the TV shopping brands who outright lie and deceive.
    Some of their watches have weird names.
    I will buy more of their products in the future due to their quality and Orient's honesty.
