Seiko 007/009 & Citizen NY0040/0045 owners are showing theirs off, so why not Makos and Rays?
I know that there is a thread for showing Orient mods, but what if you want to show your stock ones.
All welcome, stock or modified.
I'll get the ball rolling.

I love my Mako XL luminous dial with a black Nato strap.

I also love my new Mako USA too. Freaking awesome upgrade from the standard Mako's for just a little more cost.

Also in the picture is my Planet Orient with a modified HR silicone strap.









Sent from The White House on taxpayers dimes.

DTR + 4.10's + Eaton swap = Wreeeeeeeeeeeeeeedom

Just received my Orange Mako today. Still deciding on what strap to use to replace the original

I really bonded with this black Mako over the summer. It has survived 104 degree days here in Madrid. I took it cycling almost every day and I swam with it and grabbed it every time I didn't want to risk one of my other watches. I treated it like your basic beater watch but so far it doesn't have a scratch on it. I'd switch out the NATOs sometimes putting it on a white one or this one which matches everything. The size is just right. People spend a fortune on divers and there are some really nice ones out there but, for me, this guy has it all (although the Mako USA has it all plus a little more- it's definitely on my short list.)

I received my first Orient Ray in Blue yesterday. I ordered the one with rubber strap after reading not so positive things about the metal bracelet.
Just after wearing it as it is, I hated the look of the rubber strap and quickly switched it with another 22mm spare strap that I have! The combination looks okay, it at least looks better than the original strap IMO!
I love how the watch feels and performs, my biggest gripe is that I find it to be a little small on my wrist. I don't have huge wrists, my wrist size is about 7".
Now, I'm looking to get some good leather straps for my Ray! Any suggestions are much appreciated!

Yes, I imagine it to spend most time in office environment! So, I'm looking at something that makes the watch a little dressy but not too formal! Some of the brown leather straps look interesting on them I guess!
