A new Orient “Mako” was released recently and I had the opportunity to take a look at it. The new model is based on the old one but they have changed certain aspects to made it look more like a dive watch.
This post gives you a summary of the differences between the new and old model and also a quick photo review of the all black Mako, EM65007B.
Shown above is a comparison shot of the new and old Orient Mako. The differences can be summarized as follows:
– bigger font on the bezel
– uses traditional round and trapezium shaped hour markers
– hands are wider
– lume added on the second hand
– stronger lume (sorry no pic)
– center link of the bracelet is different
Most of these changes are geared to making the watch more legible.
Crown and pusher unlocked:
Shown above is the caseback shot. I believe the caseback is different from the old model as it now has a logo on it.
There is a sticker that blocks the logo and I am unable to remove the sticker as this is not my watch. However, I believe it is the same logo that is found on the Orient dolphin. Check out the link below.
Lug width is 22mm.
