Continuing to broaden its popular Mako series, Orient has just released four new Mako Diver references with chronograph functions. Going by Mako Chronograph Solar, the new watch also includes a UK-exclusive green colorway.

Offered in three colors, the basic models are comprised of a blue-dialed model with a Pepsi-colored bezel, a black version with a tonal bezel, and a white-dialed variant that’s fitted with a black uni-directional rotating bezel. Meanwhile, the UK-exclusive colorway features black subdials against a deep green dial and bezel.

Measuring 42.8mm in diameter and 13.1mm in thickness, the watch case comes in a stainless steel build, complete with matching metal bracelets. Capable of converting energy from sunlight and other light sources, these solar-powered watches can power for up to six months when fully charged.

Priced at £325 GBP, the assortment of Mako Solar Chronograph watches are all available via Orient’s official online shop.
