    Looking for Bulova 98B131 or similar

    So I don't think I'll find a 98B131 anytime soon, I was looking at the Orient mako watches but I can't make sense. Three models black faced with date look identical. Are all Makos manual wind? What are the differences? I would prefer a battery movement. Any suggestions?

    Hi welcome to WUS..The Orient Mako's are Automatic movements.They wind with motion from the wrist & arm..Before you buy anything make sure it will fit,nothing worse than buying a great watch that doesn't fit..For good fit pay attention to case size & lug to lug length(between the strap holes in the lugs)..There are many threads here about sizing,the search function is your friend..
    For Quartz drive think about Solar.Seiko & Citizen are the solar leaders.No battery changes ever..There are several good threads here & F71(affordables sub forum)on quartz divers..
    So top recap.
    Be sure what will fit you.Have a firm budget.Think hard about the difference between a battery driven quartz & solar.If you do go battery driven I like the Rhonda 715Li which uses the 10 year Lithium Battery(my MWC uses it)..Good luck..
