The Orient Bambino
The $139 Orient Bambino is a Perfect First Automatic Dress Watch
The Orient Bambino is a stalwart low-cost favorite amongst many watch enthusiasts for pairing an automatic, hacking and hand winding-capable movement with a clean, vintage-inspired design. You also get a nicely domed dial and crystal, and a date at 3 o’clock, all at a relatively low price.
How low? Well, normally, the watch retails for around $300, but you can usually find the Bambino for sale online at a decent price cut. Drop currently has no fewer than 19 different versions of the Bambino on sale starting at $139 with a couple of versions for just $10 or $20 more. The wide range of options include the 40.5mm Versions 1-3 and the 42mm version 4 — and a host of colors and dial designs.
