Default Orient Mako XL

I thought I would give a brief review on this watch. Firstly, I should say that despite what is coming next I really like the watch, that said, at it's list price of 320 I don't believe it represents very good value. Fortunately I bought mine nearly new from a collector at one third of that. This may offend some of you, but I own a Parnis 200m diver which technically speaking knocks spots off of it.

Case - Well finished 316L stainless

Window - 43mm mineral crystal. At 320 I would expect sapphire

Bezel - Worst part of the watch. 60 click and loose, without a ceramic insert

Movement - In house. Time keeping not bad now, but it took me days to regulate it. If I play golf in it it gains crazy time

Strap - Comfortable but noisy

WR - 200m

Dial - Very attractive orange

Mark out of 10 - 6

I have to say that seeing Orient do this style is refreshing. I love that dial.
Good value at the third of RRP.
