When researching this brand it did get a little confusing. Everyone else seems to refer to their most popular dive watch models as the Orient Mako. This so called “Orient Mako” is now in it’s 3rd generation – most popular being the Orient Mako XL (44.5mm) and the Orient Mako III … HOWEVER … it’s not an official product name and it doesn’t even appear on Orient’s official website – not even a mention?

A selection of current Orient 200m Diver models

Similar to Invicta watches – Orient are best known for just a handful of watches – primarily those we all call the “MAKO” – except for Orient themselves that is. However – there an ever developing brand with a huge range of sports watches. With over 100 watches certified to 200m water resistancy the choice is huge and varied. We’ve just added a few below to give some idea of their diversity. From the current line up – our favourites come under the collection entitled – Orient M-FORCE. An example of an M-FORCE is the last one shown below – an Orient RA-AC0N02Y to be precise

Orient Watches – a History Timeline

This is a brand often overlooked in the UK and USA for no obvious reason. It’s a brand with a long and innovative history. We’ve just highlighted two such innovations below – their Fineness Ultramatic and their brilliant Multi Year Calendar watch. Their website gives a clear insight in to the thinking behind the brand.

From the beginning, we have pursued a single mission: To offer high-quality, attainable timepieces with enduring style. Our heritage is rooted in craftsmanship, reliability, precision and beauty that stand the test of time … Each passing second is an opportunity to make your life memorable and unique. An ORIENT watch marks every moment along your journey.

ORIENT was launched on July 1950. They started by renting the former Toyo Tokei Co., Ltd. Hino factory. In no time at all – they began producing wristwatches in that same year 1950

1967 The Slimline Orient Fineness

This is one of their milestone watches. The Orient Fineness is an automatic day-date watch. At the time (1967-74) it was one of the slimmest automatic Japanese-made watches. This was a period when thin dress watches were extremely popular. It had thinnest movement of any other ORIENT watch. This was achieved using miniaturized parts and minimized space between gears, and used a single-piece case construction with no separate case back.

1976 Multi Year Calendar

If ever I see one of these on eBay or other market place I have to buy it. A brilliant innovation and one of the most popular ORIENT watches ever created. This is the Orient Multi Year Calendar watch – first produced in 1976. The unique calendar function shows days 1 to 31 printed on the watch dial. The clever mechanical movement only requires one adjustment per month to bring the Day of the Week in line with the date for that particular month. A brilliant design – only problem is – you need good eyesight to read the date numbers on the dial.

Value for money alternatives

Customers who appreciate the quality and value for money of Orient watches should also consider Invicta dive watches and Citizen (both also manufactured in Japan). Invicta have a watch making legacy that goes back to 1837. Most their watches feature quality Japanese movements produced by either TMI and SII. Most popular are the Invicta Grand Diver and Invicta Pro Diver

Citizen is another brand that deserves a mention. Often wrongly seen as a cheaper alternative to Seiko – Citizen dive watches are some of the very best analogue dive tools available. Their Citizen Promaster Aqualand watches feature an analogue depth meter powered by the super reliable Eco-Drive movement. Most popular are the Citizen Eco-Drive Diver’s 200m – generally available for under £200. For the mechanical purist, the Citizen Promaster Automatic dive watches.
