Orient Bambino 2nd Gen. V2 – $119 FINAL (reg. $150 – $210)
Well here we are again. For the price of a Timex Waterbury (or less), you can now get a hand-windable, hackable, automatic, 40mm Orient Bambino in their almost antique looking, retro/classic second version. Just two color combo options are available, one of which is the gold accented 8W0, but the other option is the very clean, very handsome, white/matte light silver dial with blue hands 9W0:
Sold and shipped (for free no less) via Massdrop, these were originally introduced at $135, but enough people jumped on board that they kicked the price down to $119. Usually these things run between $150 – $200ish depending on the seller as well as the code that’s being offered. (Standard price is $210 with a 30% off code direct through Orient.) So under $120? That’s absolutely worth considering if you’re in the market. And unlike a lot of Massdrop sold watches, this one comes with a 1-year manufacturer’s warranty.
