The Mako is back, and it’s better than ever. For quite some time, the original Mako had been in scarce supply, with collectors and enthusiasts worldwide wondering where it went and how to find one. That search is over, as we are excited to announce the Mako II, the second generation and successor of the famed Mako series.
While last summer’s Mako USA took on a different aesthetic, the Mako II still sports the identical design that made it so popular in the first place. However, there’s one noticeable difference: the second crown at the two o’clock position is gone. Why? Because we didn’t need it anymore. Not only is this the debut of the next generation Mako, it’s the introduction of Orient’s newest in-house caliber, the F6922. This is an automatic, hand-winding and hacking movement, capable of quick-setting the day and date with just the single crown. Also upgraded in the Mako II is the unidirectional diving bezel, which is now 120 click (up from an originally 60 click) for improved precision.
In terms of case dimensions and other specifications, the Mako II picks up where the original left off. At 41.5mm and with a 200m water resistance and screwed down crown, the Mako II is still a practical and reliable wristwatch for the summer fun in the sun. Currently it is available on bracelet in Jet Black and Marine Blue. Priced at $325 MSRP.
