New watch


Recommended Posts

I bought a new orient komasu, or mako iii depending on where you buy it. Orient is owned by seiko, and the komasu is taking the place of the SKX. The sop in New York that I bought it from wanted a picture for their Facebook so I sent them this lol!!

Nice Orient. I’m watch guy myself. Took up watchmaking as a hobby a few years ago and now spend most of my spare time collecting, repairing, and selling vintage watches, primarily Longines, Omega, Seiko, and Rolex.  A hobby that typically pays for itself plus some.

I’m actually in the process of doing the same thing! I’m having my website built right now, I’m hoping to launch by the 1st part of September. I’ll just be buying and selling, but if I need one repaired I know who to call now 😆

I got a Mako USA several years ago. I recently replaced the bezel with an SKX bezel and a Pepsi ceramic insert. The original bezel was beat up. Looks brand new again.

That looks awesome!! My only complaint with the orient is I wish the crown was bigger, or the knurling was alittle more aggressive

There is massive overlap between gun and watch guys. 

 

I’m betting there is a disproportionate amount of liberal/progressive/political in NY but generally speaking, you’re correct. They appreciate quality engineering no matter what form it takes.
