OK how many of these do you have :ksc75smile: ?
Oh, I have lots of them. Unfortunately, I leave them with my girlfriend. She's a supermodel, and moves around a lot. No, really, it's true! Honest! :wink:
Actually, I buy an expensive watch every 3-5 years. During that time, I peruse many brands and styles, figuring out what I would like to get. I consider the movement, aesthetics, and how diverse it is from my current watch collection.

My humble purchase for the day, I was at a local watch retailer to buy an Orient Mako 3 to use as my daily driver, I was pleasantly surprised that it came with additional strap (see last pic) and had sapphire crystal, so it was a done deal. I'll be the first to admit, I wasn't expecting too much but the exterior build quality is pretty good, watch looks and feels like a premium watch, solidly built.

But while I was at the shop, there was a Ball promo going on, and I got to the talking with the owner of the shop about Ball. Was shown a limited Edition Ball Bicentennial SG and I fell for it, sorta like the inverse dial and bezel colors of the Orient I had gotten, so I snagged it as well.

Both watches, and I feel pretty poor right now, not looking forward to the next few months of a diet of instant noodles.....

This is not a 'Mako 3' - early rumors have people thinking that it is. Instead, Orient went with a new name - 'Kamasu'

I have the 'Kano' - which was also thought to be a Ray 3

I think you're right, I googled Kamasu and saw that it looks exactly like mine. Damn, even the peeps at the shop didn't correct me when I called it Mako 3. That it is a Kamasu (barracuda) makes sense now because I saw that the Mako's were mineral glass, whereas mine has sapphire (had me scratching my head wondering why my 'Mako 3' was different from the regular Mako 3).....sapphire made a world of difference to me because I'd not have gotten it if it were mineral glass.

Yep, it took a while for Orient to update their website (https://www.orientwatchusa.com/collections/sport) to reflect the new names - myself included was also mistaken before. A LOT of people thought (and still do) they will be the version 3's because of the similarities - so I don't blame you.

Btw, I assume you got both items in Singapore? From which shop?
