If you’re looking to get into mechanical watches, you can do a lot worse than an Orient — the Japanese watchmaker offers in-house movements in a myriad of styles, all at accessible prices. And right now on Massdrop, you can get a great deal on two of the brand’s most popular timepieces: the dressy, old-school Bambino and the Mako II diver. The former features a slim 40mm case, a domed crystal and a ton of different dial options. The later, meanwhile, boasts a chunky case with a unidirectional rotating bezel and a 200-meter depth rating.
Both can be had at exceptionally low prices right now, just $160 for the Bambino (marked down from a $300 MSRP) and $170 for the Mako II (which has a $325 MSRP). On their own, they’re great values. But buy them together, and you can have a well-rounded two-watch collection, out the door, for less than the price of most other entry-level automatics.
A note on Massdrop:
Massdrop 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 Massdrop 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 Massdrop works, click here.
