ORIENT CEM65001M Automatic Watch

September 22nd, 2009 | 28 Comments


This diver series is the most popular collection that Orient has to offer. A
feature that makes this model, CEM65001M into a professional diver watch is its
water-resistance of up to 200 meters. This is perfect for you if you enjoy scuba
diving on your vacations to Hawaii. You will notice that this watch combines the
timeless design of the dial with the sporty look of the bezel to create a work
of art.


This collection of diver watch is all mechanical. What this means is that it
runs on the spring of the watch. When the diver watch is worn, it will
automatically store power in the spring. Hence the name, automatic watches.

The dial for this watch comes with both day and date indicators located at
the 3 o’clock position. The day indicator is adjusted by unscrewing the
push-button, located on the 2 o’clock position, and pushing the button for the
specific day. The date indicator is adjusted by the crown (time-setting piece)
located on the 3 o’clock position.

Another attribute that adds to the value of this watch is its unidirectional
bezel. The purpose of this feature is so that you can adjust the time bezel to
the minute hand to see how many minutes have gone by. This is an essential
feature for a diver. It is also a useful tool for cooking. The time hands, as well as
the hour indicators, are both luminescent. This allows for the owner to view the
time during the evening.

This watch has a two-level crown which adjusts both the time and the date.
The 1st level corresponds to the time while the 2nd level corresponds to the
date. To adjust either level, you must first loosen the screw-down crown. The
purpose of a screw-down crown is so that water does not enter the case. Not only
does the crown have shoulders for added protection, but it also has the official
orient logo engraved on the crown.

    The Mako should belong in every WIS collection. I wore mine today. What an amazing watch and dead accurate (Less than 5 secs behind atomic time all day long).

  3. By Douglas on Jul 18, 2009

    This is my 2nd most favorite Orient watch, after the Amazon exclusive.

  4. By Steven on Jul 18, 2009

    I’m not a fan of the colour, but I do love the model itself.

  5. By Kody on Jul 18, 2009

    I just received my black Mako today and I haven’t taken it off since then. You will love this watch, the quality is excellent, the bracelet is very comfortable and the fit is perfect. Now I understand why this watch is the best seller worldwide.

    I’ve got a Pepsi Mako from DOD and I am thrilled with the watch style and performance. It is really amazing how Orient can deliver a so nice timepiece for prices that make sense.

  7. By Docrwm on Jul 18, 2009

    Wow, that Orange POPS! The Mako is one of the must have watches for any watch collector. Accurate, beautiful, and strong – what more could you want in a watch?

  8. By Vladimir on Jul 18, 2009

    Thee ORIENT MACO is a collectible. it has a class of its own.

  9. By RCook on Jul 18, 2009

    I got the Black Mako for Fathers Day using the coupon at the time. Wow what a watch, more often I turn to the Mako in the morning than I do my other watches. For $100 this watch will make you think twice before reaching for something swiss.

    Hard to go wrong with a classic like this. The color scheme is so extraordinary that it almost takes away from the watch itself…very well manufactured and keeps great time for an automatic. What a deal

  11. By Brad Smith on Jul 21, 2009

    I think I would prefer another color, but I can’t fault the design at all. Two thumbs up!

    Hi, I have bought three of these divers this week. One orange from you, and two from Amazon.com. One of the Amazon watches arrived not ticking, and I have not been able to revive it yet. Shaking it in the brandy stir motion to move the rotor doesnt work and I have carried it around a while to keep it moving and it has not moved since I opened the box. Do you have any other suggeestions? THanks.

  13. By Chris Gierlich on Jul 21, 2009

    PS. I do love the watch!

  14. By David on Sep 22, 2009

    I’m not sure the advantage of the big brother compared to this: is it just the size only? My wrist is small so this watch might fit better but my eyes are not good so the bigger dial the better to check time.

  15. By Sriya on Sep 22, 2009

    Beautiful watch, but i want in black.

  16. By Benjamin on Sep 22, 2009

    Would jump on this one if it has a power reserve gauge.

  17. By Chris on Sep 22, 2009

    I bought this DoD a few weeks back when they were giving away a watch winder and kit away with it.

    Absolutely love it. Been wearing it almost every single day.

  18. By Geoff Siegel on Sep 22, 2009

    I have this watch and so does my son. Very solid performer and comfortable to wear every day

  19. By Shawn on Sep 22, 2009

    Nice watch. Wouldn’t mind owning this one either.

  20. By Bob on Sep 22, 2009

    Question: I notice the day indicator is in Spanish. Is this the case for all the Makos offered here?

  21. By dr on Sep 22, 2009

    I just LOVE how vivid the color is!

  22. By George Peck on Sep 22, 2009

    @Bob. On my Mako, you have the choice of Spanish or English. I think this one is the same, but the photos were probably shot with the Spanish day showing.

  23. By lyn Higdon on Sep 22, 2009

    oh man, i love the orange; one of my favorite colors.. don’t suppose you have one that is little more feminine? i’m petite, but i would love a watch like this.. WOW..

  24. By Patrick on Sep 22, 2009

    A classic! I think I’m going to jump on this.

  25. By Frank In Miami on Sep 22, 2009

    The price is the same as Amazon.com.

    Really unimpressed with Orient’s “DOD” pricing policy. You guys should have seen the real deals on this site back in May, June and July.

  26. By Karl on Sep 22, 2009

    Really like the watch, but I would like the same watch but with the Pepsi Dial and stainless watchband. Cannot find on the Orient Website, just from Amazon.com (actual Amazon, not grey market).

  27. By David on Sep 22, 2009

    Not really a deal. It is this price on the orient home page. Great piece though, I have seen rolee submariner owners say this watch was better. I want a black one.

  28. By Steve Smith on Apr 30, 2010

    This is my choice, I especially like the orange face. As soon as I save up enough, I’m going to buy one.

  29. By George on Jun 8, 2012

    As far as I’m concerened this watch looks beteer than both the Seiko and the Doxa dive watches. For the price it can’t beat.
