Default Show me your blues: Orient Star WZ0091el versus Orient Deep (MAKO)....similar?

Hi folks! You may recall my question regarding the WZ0091el and the SARB045.....I love both of them but decided to go first with the Orient WZ0091el....dont know why :

BUT I am not sure as to how the blue would be similar to the Orient Deep in blue which I own already....Does someone have a picture with both of them?

Thanks a lot!

By Orient Deep I think you mean what is also called the Orient Mako, correct? Model CEM65005D. I've seen some folks in Europe use the nickname "Deep" before.

I've had a blue Mako although I have not seen the Orient Star in person. Judging from the pictures the Orient Star looks to have more of a satin and sunburst look as compared to the Mako which I considered glossy and more of an electric look...ie the reflection of light is more of a crisp line rather than a more diffused one on the Orient Star. JMHO. I imagine the dial will change with different light sources.

Picts pulled off the internet.

In fact, it has been marketed as "Deep" over here.

Interesting.

I think I was reading on Sjor's G Shock page that Casio Europe specifically gives each model a nickname of their own choosing. I wonder if this is the same with Orient or is "Deep" a forum nickname just like "Mako" that the marketing groups have just adopted.

Yeah Deep = Mako .... good that it is the official branding for EUrope....I thought it would have been www.uhrforum.de slang, axel :-) ANd CONGRATS to your 500s post right now!!!!!

Thanks for the evaluation of the blues....electrcit blue....I think that is a crisp description of the "Mako" blue....anyway some pics of both under the same light would be just perfect
Cheers
