I found this in the 2011 Orient catalog and thought it might be a useful resource for Orient fans out there.
The movement table below includes movements used in the models found in the 2011 catalog. It does not include movements that are not found in the catalog.
Can you see how the model number system work on these Mako variants?
If it is hard to visualize with the mako series, try these three Hogrider variants.
That’s wonderful information! You have managed to ‘Break the Orient Code’! Now it makes sense. It’s a bit complicated but very useful information.
Thanks for sharing it! I have a couple of Orients and their code has so far baffled me! Not anymore! LOL!
Best regards always,
Nice to know that the info useful to you. Thanks.

Hi Pigeon Sol,

I have an Orient Watch, its a flat square Quartz watch.
I remember buying it in 1996/1997..
The dial is like matt gold with 2 shiny polished squares for a 12 and 6, which are resembling 4 squares each.
And 2 shiny stripes for the 3 and 9.
The other numbers are black stripes.
The dials are shiny gold.
Under the square12 stands: Orient Quartz.
Above the square6 stands a sort of 3towers. Under the square6 is in fine print: Japan – and a coupple of number i can not read at this moment.
The case itself is stainless steel with the sides goldplated. Also 2 of the 7 rows of the band are goldplated.
They are still shiny, and the watch is heavily worn.
The movement wheel is goldplated and haa a black stone(?).
On the backplate stands:
Stainless Steel Back
O (in a square) C20023-40 B2
I would like to know more about this watch, Google doesn’t show any results.
This watch is too old. Sorry, I don’t have any info on it.
i have an orient Ray with EM65 C7 A CA serial. I am confused because EM should be a Mako right? I bought the watch from an authorized Orient seller. https://www.orientwatchusa.com/shop/mens-watches/fem65009d9/
I’m not familiar with the Ray but I think earlier versions are EM65XX.
I’v got Orient watch from my grandfather and would like to know about model, date of manufacturing and country of origin. The chase on the back as folowing: CH468235-BA PR. Would you help me with this info?
Unfortunately, I don’t have info on that. I suggest you take some photos of the watch and post them on popular watch forums such as Watchuseek.com to see if anybody knows.
Thank you. I take the opportunity to ask on forum you recommended about it!
Kind regards, Alex
