Sunday Dive: 21-04-2013 Rockingham - Orient Mako
I took the Orient Mako out today. Its one of the watches I have owned the longest and is still a favourite. This particular watch was borrowed by my daughter for a few years while she dabbled with diving and it has now come back to me as she bought herself a Momentum 1M-DV01A8B which is more her size. The Mako is a great dive watch. Its straight out good looking and it does everything you expect from a diver very well. The dial and hands are easy to see at a glance and both screw-down crowns are simple to use and have a smooth action. The bezel is brilliant in the water. In fact I think the bezels on the Mako and Ray are about the best on any of the low-end divers I have trialed to date. Today its being worn an on a 22mm Orient dive strap (the OS300 OEM rubber). And I just noticed in the pics I set the date wrong this morning :-)
