The dazzling blue dial of the Orient Blue Mako has everything to do with its stunning looks. It is basically a simple three hands dive watch that also shows the day and date at the 3 o’clock position. The 41mm case is neither too big nor too small – just the right size. It sports a matching dark blue unidirectional bezel with a coin-like edge. The hour and minute hands are in the shape of a sword while the seconds hand has a red colored tip that stands out among the white markers and stunning blue dial.
An exceptionally designed Blue Mako Mens’ watch is made of a tough, polished stainless steel case material while the face is covered with a mineral crystal. This, we admit is not the toughest, scratch proof material for a dive watch expected to be subjected to rough use. But then, the Orient Blue Mako looks more like a dress watch, although it is water resistant up to 200m depth.
Fluorescent paint adorns the markers and the hands. While this may work great in bright light, the luminescence does not last very long at night. A visually attractive striking blue dial with white markers and hands give a great deal of clarity to the Orient Blue Mako Mens watch, without being overbearing or garish.
An Orient automatic movement powers the Blue Orient star automatic Watch. Accurate timekeeping is one of the features of Orient watches and the Blue Mako lives up to the expectation. Orient of Japan makes all the watch movements in-house, enabling them to keep a strict control over the quality of the watch parts. Since it is an automatic watch, all you need do is wear it regularly to keep it charged up for action. However, there is no facility for winding the watch should it stop working. But, if you simply move your wrist, the watch will begin working to show the correct time.
Stunning looks and an exceptional design are carried forward to the bracelet of the Orient Blue Mako Mens watch. The bracelet and clasp are well made with stainless steel brushed top and bottom with polished edges. It is a sturdy bracelet that can withstand rough use.
However, the best part is that the Orient star watch is extremely affordable. It is priced below $150 and for the features and stunning looks, we would say it is a highly reasonable price; you certainly get your money’s worth. The Orient Blue Mako has companion models which come in orange, black, red and a yellow dial. All these and more are found at http://www.orientwatchsite.com.
