Remember when Prince changed his name to that unpronounceable symbol? During that time, his popularity also dropped pretty severely. Coincidence?
No, I just think people prefer talking in words, not abstract symbols.
The Orient CEM65002D went through a similar transition, but for the better, and we know it today as the Blue Mako.
Let’s see what else is good about this watch:
That’s right. The watch formerly known as Orient CEM65002D is also Orient’s bestselling men’s automatic watch.
How can that be?
I think it has a lot to do with the combination of quality, luxury watch features and a $190 price tag.
The Blue Mako is also multi-purpose. It can easily go from diver mode to business mode, no questions asked.
Many happy Mako wearers have also said that the wild blue dial and bezel color is unmatched, and especially remarkable in bright sunlight.
To earn the “diver” stamp, a watch must meet the ISO 6425 standard regulated by the International Organization for Standardization.
Though the Orient CEM65002D doesn’t meet ISO 6425, it still has some important diving features:
If you’re planning on doing some professional or saturation diving, I’d look for something a bit more advanced than the Mako; but this watch would be a great choice for recreational diving. And of course it’s well-suited for swimming, snorkeling or any other water sports.
Check out these other important features on the Blue Mako: In-house movements are commonplace on Orient Waches because the company believes in producing a signature movement found only on Orient timepieces. Be sure to learn about who uses in-house movements and who doesn’t.

See what some Blue Mako/Orient CEM65002D wearers are saying about this bestselling watch.
Accurate- “The time keeping is surprisingly accurate at -3 sec/day which for an automatic is extremely good.”
Reliable- “It has proven itself reliable to me, and it’s a dressy dive watch. Let me tell you about the lume–very bright green.”
Cool- “I think they are big substantial watches, nicely finished with the typical polished sides and brushed tops, big bold hour indicators and cool sword hands.”
Quality- “I’ve purchased many diver watches and this is a great value. Solid case and good weight…very high quality. I always get good comments when I wear this one.”
Captivating- “But the most captivating part of this watch has to be the dial. It’s a deep blue with a matching blue bezel, but it’s like nothing I’ve ever seen in a watch face.”
