    [SOLD] Blue Orient Mako II - Modded

    SOLD! Thanks WUS and buyer!!!

    Hello all,
    I have for sale a modded Orient Mako II in Sunburst Blue. I picked this up from Amazon a couple of months ago with the intention of modding it. I replaced the crystal with a double-dome sapphire with purple AR from Crystal Times Horology. You don't see the AR for the most part, but I think the double-dome really pops on this watch and you get little glimpses of the purple and a sort of orangey color on the very edges from time to time. Kinda neat. I also replaced the (terrible) bezel with a coin edge bezel from Yobokies and added an Aluminum Bezel Insert from Yobokies as well. The bezel works great and, in my opinion, is much nicer than the original. I wore this watch a few times on a Moose Strap Co. Nato and a gray Wrist Candy Watch Club NATO. The bracelet was never sized or worn. I can include the original bezel, but the original crystal ended up in my parts bin with a few other crystals and I'm not exactly sure which one it was. I can try and figure it out and include that as well if you really want it, but I can't imagine anyone going back to the mineral.

    Overall the watch is in awesome condition as it hasn't really been worn, but there are a couple of things to note. I didn't open the watch when I got it other than to pop the box open and make sure it was the watch I ordered. I waited for my parts to come in and then it took me a couple weeks to get around to the mods. When I removed the bracelet from the watch, I noticed a scratch / scuff on the case behind the end link at the 6-o'clock position and a small scratch (a couple of mm) on top of the bottom-right lug.

    I assume this was an Amazon return, but as I had owned the watch more than 30 days or whatever, Amazon wouldn't take it back. You don't really notice these in day-to-day wear. The case marks aren't noticeable at all if you're using the bracelet or a leather strap. But I wanted to mention them for full disclosure. I haven't pressure-tested this watch since modding it, but I don't have any reason to believe that it wouldn't be sound for at least daily use (let's be honest, most of us don't dive anyway).

    Included in the sale are the following items:

    Orient Mako II Sunburst Blue Dial with Original Bracelet, Box, etc.
    22mm Dark Blue Moose Strap Co. Seatbelt NATO (Super Matchy-Matchy and VERY nice, only worn for about 20 hours total)
    22mm Ostrich Leather Strap from Cheapest NATO Straps (Looks good with the dark blue on this watch, never worn other than trying it on)
    22mm Brown Leather NATO from Barton (Worn once for a short time and put away as I learned quickly that I don't like leather NATOs)

    I'm asking $200 shipped anywhere in the US OBO for the whole kit n' caboodle. I'm not interested in breaking up the kit so make me an offer if you don't like the price, and the only trade I would consider would be for a Squale 50 Atmos Blue (Blasted or Polished, doesn't matter) plus a good chunk of cash from me (duh).

    Best,
    Matthew
