Orient has launched three Orient Mako models* with chronograph functions to its Sports Collection. The first chronographs in the Orient Mako series are both solar-powered, and sporty and casual in style.
Orient Mako has continued to gain popularity since its launch in 2004 and has since become synonymous with Orient. For the first time, the lineup now includes solar-powered chronograph models alongside the existing mechanical watches. The new watches are powered by converting energy obtained from sunlight and other light sources into electrical energy, so there is no need to replace batteries. This makes them convenient for daily use and outdoor activities when the chronograph function is used.
Orient Mako with chronograph feature a uni-directional rotating bezel with six grooves common to the series, along with a metal dial with a fine luster finish. Solar battery charging is achieved through the three subdials; a 24-hour indicator at 3 o’clock, a 60-minute counter at 6 o’clock, and a small second subdial at 9 o’clock. An Arabic numeral inspired by the first Orient Mako model adorns the 12 o’clock position, and Luminous Light is used for the numeral, indices and hands, allowing the wearer to read the time even in the dark.
The dial with metallic texture comes in three colours, blue, black and white. All three colours come with black subdials, and each of the colourways enhance the sporty design that characterises chronograph watches. The glass is made of scratch-resistant sapphire crystal, and the screw down crown and case back offer high water resistance to 20 bar.
Bringing together the two design elements of diver and chronograph, and equipped with the convenience of solar-powered battery, Orient Mako with chronograph is perfectly suited for any style or occasion.
