    I love Orient.



    But whomever came up with this nickname deserves to get sacked.
    No offense to those who like this name but I thought it deserved something better.

    Any thoughts?

    Eh, I'm sure someone can point to a specific forum or post where this was dreamt up. I agree, it's not a great nickname.

    But does it really matter? To this day I try to use "SBDC001" rather than the moniker "Sumo", as I think it's a terrible name as well, but it seems to have stuck...not much I can do about that.

    Re: "Hogrider" - who came up with this name?

    The nickname "Hogrider" came about because the WUS Member Hogrider posted some of the most beautiful shots at the time of his CEM7500 in the thread Orient CEM7500D on Nato strap . Isthmus, another well known member posted in a reply that when he first saw the thread and quickly read the title he read it as Hogrider Orient and wondered what an Orient Hogrider was.
    This thread is one that inspired many on here to pick up a CEM7500.

    I had wondered how it got that name. Now I know.

    Wow, thanks for the great info.

    I thought the nickname was a homage to resemble ... an actual "hog rider" and I couldn't relate to why it was chosen.

    Now I know that it is indeed a worthy nickname.

    Yes that thread was definitely responsible for this one,

    I think HR is HoRrible.

    The watch should be called Mako XL and nothing else

    A poll has been added. If there is enough people who want to rename that model we just may.

    I prefer that also. I don't like seeing mud and hearing snorting.

    It's too handsome/elegant a watch.

    Also Mako XL keeps it in the Mako family and that's more important than a potentially bland name like Mako XL. Still, we have the opportunity here to re-name it, but if we can't agree on a name I'm good with Mako XL as default.

    Why call it a Mako XL? It does not even look at all like the Mako. It should be named something different, like "Fat Boy".
