Mine got lost (stolen?)in US Post.Lots of frustration.Had to buy it somewhere else for 160$ plus tax.Should be here tomorrow.Well...
I just bought the same watch at Orient web site for 127
"Orient" (Seiko) just released eight new divers in Japan that look similar to the Mako and spec out similarly, the RN-AAxxxxx series: https://www.orient-watch.jp/product/category/?category_id=265
Maybe it's not attractive for USA but here in some European countries it costs twice as much.
For the black or blue versions, this is essentially the same price ($131.75) as buying it through Orient USA right now with code Holiday18
They should have sourced for the Mako USA model. It comes with sapphire crystal and solid end links.
That's the same price as Ebay. Nothing extraordinary. This would be a good drop if it was $99
This is the cheapest price I have ever seen on this watch. PassTheWatch is the only other place that has had this watch at this price.
Picked one of these up the last time it dropped for snorkel/SCUBA. The watch itself is beautiful, though a bit small. I got the Pepsi design which really is stunning. However, the color on the bezel is painted on and scratches off quite easily, making this more of a "statement" watch than a practical dive watch. After only 3-4 days of exploring under some ledges/holes off of Phi Phi islands and there's a pretty significant scratch on the bezel's paint. Still as an everyday casual watch/cheap dive watch you don't have to worry too much about, it's top notch. Have taken it down to 80 feet no issues/fogging/leaks.
Only has mineral crystal glass, which means it's useless. They could have paid $10 more for sapphire and added it to the price, so why compromise the watch with weak shitty glass😠

I've had an Orient Ray for about a year and a half now and the bezzel is scrached to hell but the crystal is spotless. Mark at Long Island Watch Co. Sells these with a double domed saphire crystal and upgraded bracelet so if you want the upgraded watch check it out!
Mbot
Yeah, it is a great watch except for the shitty excuse of a crystal and spring bars. This watch would been better with a plastic crystal. At least it could be buffed out easily instead of scratching and chipping. CrystalTimes sells the sapphire crystals for these watches.
Does this watch come with a factory warranty?

So I could get a watch shipped to my door that doesn't even work and have no recourse?
peegh1977
no recourse with manufacturer, you would reach out to the seller/retailer for an out of box failure or serious issue on delivery arrival within a reasonable amount of time and work it out from the party it was purchased from in this case work w MD on replacement product or return and refund
I don't know why the hollow end links is such a big deal for people. For one, my Ray II has more scratches on the side of the case from normal wear than from the clamps on the back of the case...and mine doesn't rattle at all. And while not as high quality as my Prospex Samurai bracelet, it is still very comfortable, keeping in mind that solid end links tend to extend the lugs out more which might not be good on smaller wrists. And way are you going to get a better bracelet for 10 bux more...maybe $50 on the watch or pay $100 for a Strapcode.
Would love to see the Triton on MD. It is a seriously upgraded midrange diver with better lume and a sapphire crystal.
Isn't this Amazon's regular price? Just not much of a deal going on here
Still not the Mako II USA.
I'm still holding out for the Orient Mako II USA.
Where does massdrop keep getting these watches without warranty? Are they grey market pieces?
Nster101
Is quite strang, no warranty. What kind of watches are they? Maybe those are refurbished?
Is this model made in Japan?
CheapDeals
No. This model has the Japan movement, and the rest is China.
cannot believe they still make this watch with hollow clip on end links that clamp on to the lugs and scratch up the back....really a deal breaker. why make a classic sub diver with such a garbage element??? anyone would be willing to pay the extra $10 or even $20 to get this great watch with solid end links. and even a rubber strap version is never available for people who don't want to buy a watch with the back of the lugs all damaged. it's insane/

Nato straps are what‘s up. Some people don't think they are classy but I do.
I have had my mako door 8 years and do the same. Cheap to upgrade to stronger spring bars and love nato straps for comfort and color options on the fly.
im wondering if the bracelet’s 3 “columns” of links move Independently or if they’re fixed together? Hard to word this questionso not sure if it’s clear....

Fixed together.

Funny how two folks posted about Oris and Lorier as points of comparison. I own both the Oris Divers 65 and the Lorier Neptune. The Oris retails for $2k while the Lorier costs under $400. Guess which one has the more comfortable, fully articulated bracelet?
I am from Singapore and wanted to place orde but not sure of procedure. I wrote 2 email to the ir committee but can’t get any advise. Anyone can help? Thanks

I know Creation Watches has terrible customer service, and getting one with proper alignments is a gamble, but I have never known them to sell fakes. Customs may have just said that to not let it pass through. Then again it may be as they said.
Sorry to hear that happened. My guess is that Creation did not sell you a fake. However, I've heard they routinely undervalue items on the shipping manifest, thinking they're doing you a favor and sparing import duties, although there would be no import fees for a watch as low priced as the SKX. Not sure what their rationale was.
what arranty -if any????
Mine had decent accuracy for the price (10s/day), until I went skiing and either the shocks, temperature or both made the movememt go haywire. Mine however might have been a dud, but I'm still sceptical of automatics for harsh use. The lume is disapointing compared to the Orient Ray, but this dial looks more elegant. I'd certainly recomend it if you don't plan on using it for sports.

Yes, when cold the dial got some in the middle, but it disappeared very quickly when warmed up.
No, it continued to have extreme accuracy fluctuations even after I demagnetized it. At one point it could gain over one minute in an hour (almost half an hour a day), then the next hour gain around one second. Very weird.
131 for the blue face on Amazon, 135 for the black face on Amazon.

Yup but $140 for the Pepsi, so the MD price is still pretty good.

Don't forget $15 for taxes if in US and shipping if not prime.
Just received my blue face Mako II-- very pleased so far. Need to size the bracelet, but am leaning towards putting a rubber strap on it.

Nope, mine is neatly centered. I ended up putting on a more inexpenisive Borealis blure rubber strap. Put it on my watch less than 10 minutes ago after picking it up at the P.O. So far very pleased. (Does 10 minutes use count as a throrough test lol?
The one in the pics was likely shown at 10:05 pm, meaning the date wheel was changing over to the next day. I've looked through a ton of reviews of this piece and not seen any that were misaligned.
Does anyone know how this fits someone with a smaller frame? Maybe that's something easy to adjust.

If you don't like it keep it scrolling man. It's a community driven site. Maybe it's not for you.
Also, proportions matter, something can still look awkward even if you adjust it to 'fit.' No one wants to have it look like they have Big Ben on their wrist >.<
I think he/she meant more about the case diameter and how it looked on a small arm then the actual strap. And for Miasua the watch looks fine one a smaller arm.
Still waiting for a USA 2...
Wow, this is a pretty solid price. Would jump in if I didn't have the Black one already.
Postyy
I have the black one already but got the pepsi version and ordered a same color 2 piece nato strap to go with it,
Also stapcode.com makes a replacement band with a milled clasp and solid endlinks specifically for the mako 2. Super oyster style.
Why does the price on the watch drop page say 129.99 but when you click the prices turns into 169.99
Jxisebzi
Once enough people commit to purchasing the watch the price will drop. So 129.99 is the goal price
