Orient’s CEM65002d (the Blue Mako) is a Classic

March 21st, 2010 | 3 Comments

Orient’s CEM65002d, better known as the Blue Mako, has become a staple in the watch world. A fan of the watch from Maryland, Miguel Alva, “was completely blown away by its deep beautiful blue color of the dial,” and was excited about the lume, which he found “legible in complete darkness. It will glow for the night after a little bit of charging.”

Miguel said that “this watch is worth every penny. The quality is superb, and the build is solid.”



Read on to find out why Miguel and other watch enthusiasts continue to rave over the Blue Mako:

  • Dive Watches are Quality Timepieces
  • Blue Makos are Classy


Dive Watches are Quality Timepieces

Think about it – if a watch is built to withstand the pressures of scuba diving, it will be more than well-equipped to endure the strains of daily life.

To be classified as a diver, watches must meet certain standards.

These standards revolve around:

  • Clarity and readability
  • Ability to time dives accurately
  • Magnetic, chemical, water and shock resistance
  • Durability



The CEM65002d’s blue dial features chromed hands will with illuminating materials for easy-to-read time telling. Its rotating unidirectional bezel allows for accurate timing of dives, and the watch is water resistant up to 200m (perfect for most scuba diving). Its solid stainless steel band and case are durable for land activities and ideal for those in the water.

Divers should also have power reserve indicators, so that the watch wearer knows if he or she is running low on energy. The CEM65002d has a 40-hour power reserve, with an indicator on the watch face.

While all Orient dive watches are known for their quality, durability and clarity, the Blue Mako also boasts a classic, sophisticated style.


Blue Makos are Classy

Orient is known for creating sophisticated timepieces, and the CEM65002d is no exception. Described by one reviewer as a “clean diver” that could easily be worn with a suit, Orient’s Blue Mako is certainly able to make the trip to the boardroom.

The watch’s blue dial, a traditional color for business, is gracefully complemented by a stainless steel case and solid bracelet. The day and date indicator is perfect for the businessman on the go, letting you know the date for writing checks, letters, or just keeping track of where you need to be.



If you’re looking for a classy, quality timepiece for under $200, the CEM65002d is the way to go.

And if you decide to go scuba diving after work, you’ll be prepared.

    The above review states that there is a power reserve indicator on the CEM65002d, but I do not see one on the dial. But its a great looking watch with or without the indicator.

    I own a Blue Mako. It is a remarkably nice timepiece, particularly for the price. Mine is even keeping COSC time. If you are thinking about a dive watch, you will not be disappointed with one of these!
