The $139 Orient Bambino is a Perfect First Automatic Dress Watch

The Orient Bambino is an excellent entry-level mechanical watch, and there are 19 different models to choose from.

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 5 different versions of the Bambino on sale starting at $139 with a couple of gold-toned iterations for just $10 more.

A note on Drop:
Drop is not like other online retailers. It’s a members-only site that requires signing up (all it takes is an email address). If you’re not a member, you can sign up here. When you place an order from Drop at a discounted price, you’re not buying from them directly. The site works by taking orders from consumers, then bulk ordering product at a discount directly from brands and other wholesalers. For more information on how Drop works, click here.
