Makara Watches - Introduction

Based in Canada, Makara is a young boutique watch brand that offers affordable dive watches. The brand takes its name from the sea creature ‘Makara’ mentioned in Hindu mythology. The brand introduced its first model, the Makara Octopus in 2013 and complete collection was successfully sold out in a short span of time.

The Makara Octopus was launched in 316L Stainless Steel and CuSn8 Bronze versions with an option of brown, black, blue or green dial variations.  Measuring 44mm in diameter, case of the Makara Octopus is fitted with a stainless steel caseback and serial number. It has a domed sapphire crystal front glass with anti reflection coat inside. The Makara Octopus features a uni-directional 120 click sapphire bezel.

The Makara Octopus has a water resistance up to 200 meters.  Retail price of Makara Octopus bronze version was US$ 395 and the stainless steel version had a price tag of US$ 395.
