C'mon, folks. It's an affordable classic. I call it the best automatic watch $100 can buy. You love it. I love it. It's a leading contender for most recommended watch on the WUS Affordables Sub-Forum. It's the Orient Mako.

So, post 'em up. Let's see your Makos!

My first was a Pepsi:



One Black:



Also, a Yellow:



And finally the Black Mako that's here to stay b-)|>:

My beautiful black Mako was so good-looking that a classmate at the medical institute decided to steal it while it was off my wrist. I will be ordering a new one soon, along with a replacement Zulu strap as well.

me too... please...please... ;-)

When I look at this watch I stumble about the price, it looks so good.
I know that some other WUS friends have had problems with O-USA, and that bums me out because I place this watch up with my favorites, that cost much more. I would not have known about the Mako if not for WUS. Here's my different straps, same watch:

Original rubber:

Only the blue for me, but I have had it for quite some time:



My Mako has always been a go to watch in regular rotation, and it has stayed while many much more expensive Swiss and Japanese watches have been sold for others to enjoy.

But of course. Great strap combos, Skywatch. A worthy favorite, the humble Mako.

I've been wearing my blue Mako for the last few days. Fantastic watch!
It was my second automatic watch purchased just after I had to send back my Alpha sub for warranty service.
Alpha Sub? Who needs one of those when you have a MAKO! Brilliant shot of the blue dial.

That's high praise from a guy with as many watches as you, Griff. Welcome to Mako World.

My Blue Beauty:


It's mighty hard to beat the Mako in the "bang for the buck" category. :-!
Beautiful shot, Lee. Moderators with Makos. I wonder how common that is throughout WUS? We'll make it a sub-club.

Resistance is futile, Brotha. The Mako is calling to you. I don't see an Orange Mako in this thread yet. It is your destiny. ;-)

I love my Mako. It's my go-to watch. I also have a navy and grey bond nato for it. I want a rubber strap as well as a leather strap or two, just need to find the right ones.
