I bought my first Bambino a few years ago and I've added a few more since then. I think they are great looking watches and they look like they're worth a lot more than than they actually cost.


Photos just don't do them justice, as I'm sure all Bambino fans know.

Unfortunately don't have one either Grady, but can see what attracts
you these beauties above here ! They really do look exceptional, and
like so much bang for the buck. ..Really is so impressive, and that is
just from seeing pictures.

Can just imagine them in person. :eek: Really appreciate the look, as
well as post !!! :clapping-hands-abov

Waiting to catch one used I'm a cheapskate. But don't think I haven't been looking. Very nice dress watches.
Quite a few second owner pieces on eBay, I too have been having a browse. I can see a Bambino on the horizon, but for me it has to be new even then they are great value. They also look a lot better than the price tag indicates by a long margin. I do love Orient and I do not have one in my rotation at the moment.

I'm pulling the trigger on this one today. gray dial with rose accents and a brown suede strap. I fell in love with this watch the moment i saw it. I will look into another strap as well, so I can get two looks with the same watch.

You can imagine how that will be in person Gary ! :eek2: :smile1: ..I mean that
gray dial is going to be transforming in different light every second, and
the rose gold accents are outstanding too. ..Then the dueling straps is a
stroke of genius also. :thumb:

A big congrats ahead of time to you Gary !!!

Compared to the 70s logo the current one is the epitome of tasteful design :D. Like many of my WF comrades I’ve been eyeing these often but somehow never dropped the hammer on one. The white dial, blue hands with Roman numerals one is a true dress watch, that’s the one I would buy if I eventually can get past the endless dilly-dallying about it :D

I have looked at these myself on a number of occasions, great looking watches. I know for a fact that I would not wear one though dress watches have never been my thing. Any dress occasions for me I always wear my GMT Master it slips just nice under a double cuff.
Enjoy.

I don’t think the logo is that bad. Okay, it might be a bit ostentatious, but I can live with it.

The watch reminds me of my old wind-only timex as a kid. Very nice.

I think I feel about the old Yellow Mako the same way as you guys with this one; I actually have mailed Orient USA and Orient Japan to see if they could find one for me.

Hopefully I will soon be a fan also if Long Island Watch ever gets around to sending mine to me. I could have drove to New York and picked it up already.:bounce:

Very cool guys, and one thing is for sure, it will be worth the wait
when they come in. ..That's just from seeing pics of them too ! :) :clap2:
