    Need some new spring bars for my Mako XL. Any suggestions on where to get a good pair? Got a pair from a mall kiosk a while back and they were trash. Wondering if Amazon would be the same sub par quality

    Thanks!

    Have you tried Orient’s website? If they are not listed on the site, it might be worth reaching out to their customer service team.

    The Orient spring bars also seem to be a bit flimsy. Shortly after buying the watch, the original spring bar snapped at a Panthers game while I was cheering and my watch flew two rows down. Luckily it hit someone and not the ground, lol

    I went to a local jeweler and got 'em swapped out last time mine gave out. I have a Ray (the old version with the pusher) and the jeweler told me a really robust spring bar won't fit in the hole drilled out of the lugs. The key is getting the right length, if it's a millimeter too long or too short you're in trouble and Orient can use funky lengths.
