Orient Mako and Ray updated

Post by JAS1125 » Fri Apr 08, 2016 6:02 pm

Update movement and removal of the day pusher

Cost increase also

The Mako II builds upon the Mako legacy. It has transitioned away from the reliable 46943 automatic movement to the more robust Calber F6922 that is automatic, hand-winding and hacking. This new mechanical movement has removed the need for a second crown at the two o'clock position. The diving bezel has also been upgraded to be 120 click for improved precision. These changes have definitely improved the utility of the Mako as a diver watch, all the while preserving the classic aesthetic that the Mako had become known for.

Big cost increase, but it's right up there with removing the need for hand-cranking in a car and is aesthetically just as pleasing. However, one has to wonder how long it'll be before they finally get rid of that silly roober strap with the even sillier 'swimming mako's.' Meh.

I like the Ray on the right. Now to sit on it a day or two.
It's easier to fool people than to convince them that they have been fooled.
