Black Friday creeps up on us earlier and earlier every year, so we’re loath to discuss anyone repurposing it outside the holiday season. But we’ll gladly make an exception for this: Jomashop’s Spring Black Friday sale where Orient’s already affordable watches are up to 80% off.

You should already know the Japanese watchmaker Orient as both an ideal stepping stone in a budding collector’s arsenal and the designer of mechanical watches for people who don’t see the sense of buying anything for their wrist over $500 (priorities!). 

If you’re new to the brand, you’ll want to start with the Mako nameplate, Orient’s flagship dive watch. From the selections, we particularly like the black dial Mako III that’s $140 off, the blue dial Mako III that’s $150 off and this Mako II for $140 off if you’re trying to do a collect-em-all Pepsi bezel thing. For other styles, this Ray Raven II is great if you’re looking for something funkier, and the hands on this Diver Ray II are pretty slick.
