A New Generation of Bambino
The 2nd Generation Bambino Version 2 builds upon what the original started. The dial features a light, metallic sunburst that's offset by polished hour markers and dauphine hands. A date window sits at the three o'clock marker, and a track of seconds markers worked its way around the edge of the dial. Most importantly, the Bambino has been upgraded with the F6724 movement which is automatic, hand-winding, and hacking.
- Automatic, Hand-winding, and hacking (seconds halt) movement

The watch is actually looks better in real life

First impressions: The watch comes in a nifty little box. Worth holding on to if you don't have a watch case. I knew I needed to add a photo showing the dome of the crystal. This is one of the things that drew me to this watch, trying to recapture the beauty of an old 60's-era Omega Seamaster I use to own and subsequently had to sell after my divorce. It also has a domed face which I couldn't seem to catch it with my camera, but is visible to the naked eye.
The photo showcasing the domed crystal also shows the unsigned crown. No extravagance here...it would have been a nice touch, but at this price point is not expected. There is a signed buckle.
Another couple of photos just to compare this watch to the sizes of a couple other dress/casual watches...my Hamilton Khaki and Tissot Perpetual Date (quartz). Comparing the bands, I can see and smell a higher quality of leather on the Hamilton and Tissot, but in all reality these are 2 time pieces costing more than twice what I paid for this Orient.
The other thing that drew me to this particular watch was the blue hands on white face. I was looking at a Citizen watch with the same color scheme, but read complaints that the blue hands only showed blue under the right light. That might be the same with this watch, but this piece...with its classic dress watch look and being an automatic (for which the accuracy I cannot attest to, yet) won the battle to me.
I could not be more pleased with my purchase!
1. It's very large for a dress watch. If they were to bring the diameter down to 38mm I think it would be perfect, but unfortunately fashion watches these days are all large. If you want a more traditional automatic dress watch that is smaller however, you'll have to go vintage and gamble on its condition, and possibly pay quite a bit more.
2. It rattles a bit. I own a few Automatic watches (vintage Bulova, vintage Omega, a Seiko SKX, etc), and they all have a small amount of rattle which is to be expected. However this is more noticeable. It's not that bad, but I was almost worried there was something wrong at first.
Also, not a con, but the strap isn't all that great. If you like crop leather it isn't so bad, but I replaced it.
1. Very nice polish all around. All numerals and accents are placed evenly, the face is clean of any blemishes, and the case was pristine. The individual tick marks that surround the edge of the face are very crisp, it reminds me of a nautical instrument.
2. The lens. It has a very large raised lens, which I appreciate because it pays homage to older vintage watches. It almost reminds me of a ship's windows because of its curvature. However, that means it can be more easily damaged because of how pronounced it is. While not sapphire, its held up fairly well so far. I wear it every few days and never while in uniform. The risk is worth it, its eyecatching.
3. The movement. I'm no expert on a horology nor the Orient Cal 48743 movement this watch has, but so far it has been more than serviceable and hasn't gained or lost any significant time. Being able to manually wind the watch is an amazing feature and something I miss when I wear my gshock or my Seiko SKX (which is automatic but you can't wind! Biggest criticism of that great watch). The date has always been accurate as well, provided you set the watch correctly for the month (different months have a different number of days obviously)
4. Water resistance. I haven't swam with this watch, and I wouldn't recommend that at all. However I've done the dishes a few times without thinking and there's been no issue. I question if this truly is 30M rated, I'd want to see someone test that actually. But like I said, it's been rained on and soaked in soapy water without issue.
It would be very difficult to do better for less than $200, or the $140 I paid for that matter. This watch is perfect for casual business settings or on a college campus. Could fit with a lot of different aesthetics I think. For the cost I paid, it's not disposable but I feel like I can wear it without worrying to much about damaging it.
