Hello all. I'm new to this forum, but not very new with Orient. :) I have one rather odd question for you guys. While, I own 2 Mako: a black and a pepsi already, I'm getting this on-and-off bug making me want to add another orange diver to my collection. Problem is that, in the country I live, a Mako cannot no longer be found. Even a Ray seems to get discontinued (from being imported here.) And for some reasons, I want to stick with Orient for now.
I have looked around both B&M and e-mailed online stores. The only 2 orange diver Orients I can find are a Orange Ray at $200 USD and Mako XL for $180 USD. These price seem a little steep to me, since I remember I bought my pepsi mako for only $130 USD. The retailers I talked to all said, MSRP for the Orange ray is a tad higher than Mako XL, which is why Ray's price come out a little higher. I don't mind bigger size of Mako XL since I plan to switch bracelet with a Zulu anyway.
At this point, I still cannot make my mind. So, I post this as an odd question to you guys. Which one of these 2 would you pick? and Why?
