Not sure that this is really a Mako. I think this is the Raven. Same watch but the Mako has Numbers on the dial.

The Mako II can be bought for $120 on Amazon. Though it looks like the Amazon version is mineral glass. Not sure but the one OP posted might have solid end links. So that and the sapphire glass might justify the price difference.

This is the Mako USA II. It was designed in conjunction with the reddit watch community. Only available in the US. It does have solid end links. Sapphire is a good upgrade and I have not seen it cheaper than this anywhere else.

They have blue dial version for same price. I really like the white dial version but looks like out of stock.

This watch has
Orient in-house movement
sapphire crystal
solid end links
automatic + manual wind + it hacks (second hand stops)
no more separate adjust day button
drilled lugs so it's easy to swap bracelet
very comfortable and micro adjustable bracelet
120 click solid bezel

Really the only down side I can see with this watch is that the bezel is aluminum instead of ceramic and is scratch prone. Other than that , this watch is perfect. Probably the best value dive watch out there. I got one myself and will be my first mechanical watch.

This is a great deal, usually the actual orientusa shop will drop to around 230 or so once a year. This beats that significantly.

This isn't a watch you really get to resell, it's a great beater watch for daily wear and tear and break out your 2k watches for special occasions.

The only watches that compare with good movement would be neymar / blwrx brand where they are seikos nh35 movement allowing for hacking as well. Solid end links I believe. The lowest model is around 150-180 on Amazon.

Seikos don't have sapphire and hacking until around the 350 plus range.
