    Orient Mako XL win on fleabay!

    Hi all

    Been looking at these for a while, Managed a sneak bid with three seconds left and won this Mako XL for £80 posted!!

    The description said that it comes on the Zulu but the original bracelet is included too and that it's not had very much wear!







    Been ill for well over a week now coughing day and night, It feels like my ribs have been used for kicking practice and i've a permenant headache that paracetamol only just grazes but suddenly i'm happy as Larry!!

    I bet you'll be tempted, John!

    Just as a word or warning, don't expect too much from the lume...

    Absolutely right. In all other respects the Mako XL punches above its weight, but they certainly donít buy their lume from the same supplier as the Seiko mothership!

    Seiko have their own lume called LumiBright.

    I beats just about everything at any price including high end ones.
