ORIENT Black Mako
Caliber 469 Twenty-One Jewels
200m Water Resist
Solid Stainless Steel Oyster bracelet
I bought my first Orient during the period 2005/2006. It was a black (more a matt dark charcoal grey) dial ORIENT Automatic 200m, also known as the "Mako". The Mako is a tough reliable watch and I wore it as a real beater - for swimming, for gym, for work, for play etc. And it stood up to expectations. The 469 starts up the moment I picked up the watch to set the time. This watch had a very strong lume and a heavy duty oyster bracelet. Later in the years, I put her on a black leather strap and she was still as stunning. This beater watch is now in her new home across the globe.
Here is a pic I borrowed from the Web, showing the Caliber 469, the solid stainless steel oyster bracelet and fat spring bar.
