    I don’t do quartz, but this watch is super cool.

    W00T! Awesome offer Orient. In for 1!!!!

    Unlike some self proclaimed WIS that have an unreasonable dislike for quartz movements, I absolutely love and appreciate the many advantages and features afforded by quartz. They do have a rightful place in my watch collection. And very well deserved I might add.

    However, I must say that the price of this watch is entering the turf of much better offerings in the marketplace. Case in point: About a month ago I picked up the following Citizen Eco-Drive watches:

    Citizen Calibre 2100: Flyback mechanical chronograph (No stepper motors used at all!) complication, 1/5 secs sweeping chrono hand, alarm, Eco-Drive solar movement, etc…$300

    Citizen Calibre 8700: Retrograde perpetual calendar, dual time, alarm, Eco-Drive solar movement, a ton more of other features…$250.

    While this Orient seems to be a good watch for what it is, The Seiko 7T62/7T92 chrono-alarm battery operated movement, simply put, does not hold a candle to the Citizen Eco-Drive offerings.

    In terms of quartz, you have very, very stiff competition coming from Citizen…

    $280 for a quartz? this better be a +10 sec a year thermocompensated bad boy.

  9. By Frank In Miami on Aug 28, 2009

    Andy, say what? do you have any idea what you just said? A thermocompensated quartz movement will run you north of US$1,500, be it a Breitling, Rolex, Grand Seiko(9F movement) or Even a Citizen Chronomaster with the thermo compensated A660 movement.

    Oh yes and the sub-$500 family of Seiko 8F HEQ watch movements do not have thermocompensation either (8F32, 8F33, 8F35 and 8F56).

    Neither Seiko or Citizen officially import and sell HEQ watches in north america. Most of these are Japan market only offerings.

    Hey Orient you might take into consideration that Amazon sells the Yello Mako $30 cheaper than you do: http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_ss_0_12?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=orient+yellow+mako&x=0&y=0&sprefix=orient+yello

    Seems kinda dumb to pay extra seeing that Amazon is an Orient AD as well.

  11. By Rob on Aug 28, 2009

    Stylistically, Orient has some great watches, and this quartz watch is no exception. I’ll point out that the when the crown is screwed down, it’s great; but when one is setting the time, it’s screwed up.

    Go ahead, it’s okay to snicker at that…

    Yippee! Just grabbed a Yellow Mako. And, Frank, my son asked for a modest Eco-Drive military watch about two months ago. I liked it so much I purchased one for myself. I became fascinated with how far watch technology had advanced. That Eco-Drive is why I started the immensely pleasurable hobby of watch collecting. And it’s a very sensible hobby, IMHO, since watches can be stored in a desk drawer. (I have a friend who collects fly rods and reels, another who collects guns, and a third who collects electric guitars)

  13. By Frank In Miami on Aug 28, 2009

    Baibai, I also re-took the watch collecting hobby earlier this year after a long hiatus from buying watches. Indeed it is a very pleasurable hobby and due to the current depressed global economic climate we find ourselves in, I see watch manufacturers stepping up the quality, design, features, etc all at very affordable prices.

    I am glad to have re-ignited my old love affair with Orient and Citizen.

    Citizen Eco-Drive is amazing technology. I can easily say that Citizen owns the solar quartz watch market. The value vs features proposition is as good as that of Orient with their mechanical watches.

  14. By Richard on Aug 28, 2009

    Great looking watch.

  15. By BaiBai on Aug 28, 2009

    LOL @ Rob’s joke.

    Frank, I could not agree with you more. Although I am new to watch technology, I know a value when I see one (I’ve been collecting Japanese pottery for years). Overall, Orients are the best value in mechanical watches, period. Overall, Citizens are the best value in electric watches. It’s simply a matter of doing the homework.

    And all of you hemming and hawing over a few discount percentage points, well, you’ve saved my newbie butt a few times (and I find it a little exciting).

    Pulsar did it with their psr 10…

  17. By Frank In Miami on Aug 28, 2009

    Andy, I am aware about the Pulsar PSR-10 but it is no longer manufactured.

  18. By Matthew on Aug 28, 2009

    Awesome! Thanks, Orient, for the heads up on the yellow mako! I’ve added that to my collection and anxiously await its arrival next week!! :)

    @rob : DOD coupon restrictions do not apply to this offer. hint hint

    Another good looker from Orient. I would snag one if the hands were black for better contrast.

  21. By Todd on Aug 28, 2009

    Nice looking watch, I have enough quartz, trying to up the automatic collection though.

  22. By addy on Mar 21, 2010

    what climate (steam, hat water) restriction are in using mechanical watches? Can I take a shower with watch?
