Orient's Latest Mako, the Kamasu

The Orient Mako III, also known as the ‘Kamasu’, is the latest Orient diver from the Mako/Ray watch collection. The Kamasu is often compared to Seiko SKX007 and Citizen NY0040, in the category as best inexpensive automatic divers watch. In terms of visual, the theme for the Kamasu, is suppose to resemble the sharp teeth, fearsome barracuda, which in Japanese , translates to “Kamasu”.

Right: 22mm Black Kevlar Finish Watch Strap, Beige Stitching, Brushed 22P18BBU63K1A85

The bulletproof material Kevlar has specific woven texture & non-shinny appearance, however poor flexibility. One of our best sellers is the Kevlar finishes synthetic watch straps, the material that can bend like nylon fabrics but looks like Kevlar. Here comes the new generation of Kevlar liked material, this time we applied it on genuine leather with improved fine texture and special touch. A special coating was applied to the watch strap to give an extra water-repellent protection which is not so common in the leather watch strap. Watch strap was made in extra long length also can fit larger size of wrist.

Just by looking at the Kamasu without checking the specs, you would already think its a great deal knowing you can add it to your collection for less than 300.00USD. Then when you think it couldn’t get any better, but then you realize the Kamasu operates with their latest F692 caliber, along with 22 jewel, 21,600 VPH oscillating frequency, creating smoothness in the movement of the second hand.

Antipode CrocoCalf Collection is 100% stitching by hand. Waxed thread was used on this beautiful genuine matte crococalf for extended durability. This croco grain embossed crocodile’s square grain which looks like the real thing but only cost in a calf leather watch strap.

Here to chime in on the need for some quality aftermarket bracelets for this watch. Have you guys tried all the different 22mm endlinks in your stock? You might not even need to produce anything new if you find a fit out of existing stock!
