Orient Unveils Limited-Edition Mako Anniversary Timepiece

Orient Limited-Edition Mako

Orient, a renowned name in the world of horology, commemorates two decades of its iconic Mako series with the launch of a limited-edition 20th-anniversary model. This limited-edition timepiece pays homage to the rich heritage of Orient and Mako series is a coveted addition for enthusiasts and collectors alike.

A Legacy of Diving Excellence

Since its inception in the 1960s, Orient’s diver design models have been emblematic of the brand’s ethos. The Orient Mako series, affectionately known for its dolphin icon engraved on the case back, has been a cornerstone of Orient’s identity. Launched in 2004, the Mako has seen numerous iterations, each a testament to Orient’s commitment to quality and innovation.

Inspired by the Ocean

The standout feature of the 20th-anniversary model is its mesmerizing blue gradation dial. Symbolizing the vast ocean that surrounds Japan, the dial transitions from a deep blue at 12 O’clock to a lighter hue at 6 O’clock.

Adorned with Arabic numerals and a stamped wave pattern, the dial exudes elegance and sophistication. The inclusion of “Anniversary Edition” at 4 o’clock and striking gold-coloured hands adds a touch of celebratory flair.

Timeless Design, Impeccable Craftsmanship

True to its heritage, the anniversary model retains the signature uni-directional rotating bezel with six grooves found in all Orient Mako watches. The bezel features a two-toned blue and black aluminium plate, accentuating the watch’s aquatic theme. Crafted with a stainless steel case, it is also equipped with a screw-down crown and case-back. The timepiece offers water resistance up to 20 bar, ensuring durability and reliability in any environment.

Precision Engineering

At the heart of the 20th anniversary, Mako beats the automatic (with hand winding) mechanical in-house calibre F6922. Renowned for its accuracy and reliability, this movement boasts a power reserve of 40 hours. The accuracy is at an impressive state of +25 to -15 seconds per day. Whether exploring the great outdoors or navigating the urban jungle, this timepiece is the epitome of practicality and performance.

Limited Edition, Lasting Legacy

Limited to just 3,000 pieces, the 20th anniversary Orient Mako model is destined to become a sought-after collector’s item. It is perfect for seasoned enthusiasts, avid collectors, and fashion-forward individuals alike. This rare timepiece seamlessly blends style with substance, making it a cherished companion for every occasion.
