    +++The Official Orient Mako Club!+++

    C'mon, folks. It's an affordable classic. I call it the best automatic watch $100 can buy. You love it. I love it. It's a leading contender for most recommended watch on the WUS Affordables Sub-Forum. It's the Orient Mako.

    So, post 'em up. Let's see your Makos!

    My first was a Pepsi:



    One Black:



    Also, a Yellow:



    And finally the Black Mako that's here to stay :

    Homage watches democratize history for the common wrist.


    Cheers! James

    Can I join?

    My beautiful black Mako was so good-looking that a classmate at the medical institute decided to steal it while it was off my wrist. I will be ordering a new one soon, along with a replacement Zulu strap as well.

    me too... please...please...

    When I look at this watch I stumble about the price, it looks so good.
    I know that some other WUS friends have had problems with O-USA, and that bums me out because I place this watch up with my favorites, that cost much more. I would not have known about the Mako if not for WUS. Here's my different straps, same watch:

    Too many watches, not enough wrists.

    "The new servant of the sun has aspirations to become its master. A prosthetic device, yes: worn on the wrist, watches tie people to the celestial clockwork. Hundreds of millions of them, lying in what pockets, on what wrists, under what sleeves, revolve in time with it. Yet although they watch the sun, watches have established a kind of independence. They tick as remorselessly through the night as through the day, through the winter as through the summer, as though their environment is not going through vast changes in each 24 hours and each year. These perturbations are part of the lives of all other animals, but people have been encouraged by their clocks to ignore the daily and seasonal cycles and to pretend that there is nothing to contend with but metronome-paced linear time. We appear to have caged the sun inside a machine." Michael Young, The Metronomic Society, p. 204

    I've been wearing my blue Mako for the last few days. Fantastic watch!
    It was my second automatic watch purchased just after I had to send back my Alpha sub for warranty service.

    Only the blue for me, but I have had it for quite some time:



    My Mako has always been a go to watch in regular rotation, and it has stayed while many much more expensive Swiss and Japanese watches have been sold for others to enjoy.

    It's mighty hard to beat the Mako in the "bang for the buck" category.
