We are excited to bring you the Mako USA, the newest version of our popular Mako diver. It’s been slightly redesigned with feedback from the watch community in mind. It now includes:
- a sapphire crystal
- solid endlinks
- drilled lug holes
- 120-click bezel.
- The dial also glows more bright with Nemoto LumiNova®, a top-of-the-line lume pigment.

The Mako USA is now available for presale in Jet Black, Stark White, and Royal Blue, and is expected to ship July 1, 2015. Only available here at orientwatchusa.com!

Sapphire crystal now! Man, the white dial is calling my name.

Wow I love these! Wish it was a quartz watch though. Will you guys ship these to Canada? Are these the same movements as before or do they have hand-winding and hacking as well?

I have a few Orients and I think they are super value for the money.
The new USA model is a nice step up.
White looks awesome.

Look forward to hearing what you think of it Roarry.

I have been tempted to pull the trigger on this myself. I would love to hear your feedback as well. To be honest, at $169 I feel stupid not purchasing it.
