Sharks have remained virtually unchanged for millions of years, so we thought it was time for an upgrade: most notably, the new Orient caliber F6922 and a more robust 120-click bezel – sometimes evolution needs a kick in the fin.
Since the mid-2000s, the Orient Mako has been the most popular Orient series to date. With so many diver watches available, it could be said with confidence that the Mako is one of the top affordable mechanical diver watches on the market today. The Orient Mako is an absolute classic and can be attributed to being the watch that started it all for collectors and enthusiasts around the globe.
The Mako II builds upon the Mako legacy. It has transitioned away from the reliable 46943 automatic movement to the more robust Calber F6922 that is automatic, hand-winding and hacking. This new mechanical movement has removed the need for a second crown at the two o’clock position. The diving bezel has also been upgraded to be 120 click for improved precision.
These changes have definitely improved the utility of the Mako as a diver watch, all the while preserving the classic aesthetic that the Mako had become known for. Appropriate for skin diving only!
The Orient FAA02001B9 is the renown Orient Mako and Ray models made a lot better. This reliable dive watch can be hand wound and hacked made from the in-house Orient automatic movement. With this watch it’s simply operated with the crown. Also the lines of the watch have become a bit stronger.
The FAA02001B9 is a stylish watch that will be suitable for nearly any outfit and nearly every occasion. You can wear the watch during swimming (although it’s not suited for air diving), but it will also look great with a suit or casual wear. It’s a true all-rounder with a great design, great quality and a true mechanical in-house movement.
