Bought an Orient Mako 2 and the experience was excellent. Watch was proofed well and arrived quickly.

This watch gets a lot of compliments while on the NATO-Style Blue and Red Striped Nylon Strap. Its one of my most complimented watches, super shiny dial when the sun hits it! Very versatile too. A con though is the crystal is a fingerprint magnet and gets hazy (I'm ultra picky). I'd heavily recommend swapping the crystal to a flat sapphire AR. Another con is that the lume is abysmal when compared to my SKX009 but who cares. If someone is reading this to chose between the Mako II or SKX009, it comes down to what you want from the watch. If you want a compliment getting watch that is not so tooltastic but just on aesthetic, the MAKO II is your winner. If you want a classier, more tool oriented watch get the SKX009 with a strapcode jubilee upgrade. Simply, if you are planning to put a NATO strap on your watch, get a MAKO II, if you plan on a metal bracelet get a SKX009.

I was so pleased with the Mako II blue dial that I purchased the Pepsi-Style Mako II have two Makos in rotation. This is a great entry level diver.

Though I am new to the world of mechanical watches, I did my due diligence to find the watch that would intersect my objectives of value, cost, aesthetics, and durability. Along the way of finding my watch model, I also learned a great deal concerning horology from the videos made by Island Watch. The site earned my trust and I made my purchase. I am still amazed that 3 days later on the West Coast, I received my beautiful Mako II. Thanks!
why Trust Verified Reviews?
Verified Reviews are real, authentic reviews collected from actual paying customers, using Shopper Approved's Verified Review Platform. When reviews are Verified by Shopper Approved, you know that you can trust them to make better buying decisions.
Unverified Reviews on the other hand, are reviews collected by Open Review platforms that allow anyone to leave a review, without any validation or proof of purchase. Unfortunately, most reviews you read online are Unverified Reviews, and can't be trusted.
As a consumer, here's how you can tell the difference:
Verified Reviews from Verified Review Platforms like Shopper Approved, have much higher review counts and higher overall Star ratings, because they attempt to collect reviews from every single paying customer.
Unverified Reviews from Open Review Platforms, tend to have much lower review counts and more negative Star ratings, because people with bad experiences are primarily those who leave reviews. This often creates a misleading, inaccurate portrayal of a companies true reputation.
So, when searching for Verified Reviews, look for the name you know you can trust. Shopper Approved.
