Orient Bambino Newest Model!

In order to describe the design of the original Bambino, one must realize that it is anchored by two things: a domed crystal, and a domed dial. It would be these two features that would link all the Bambino collections together. The dial features a light, metallic sunburst dial that’s offset by polished hour markers and dauphine hands. A date window sat at the three o’clock marker, and a track of seconds markers worked its way around the edge of the dial.

At first glance, the 2nd generation Bambino looks identical to the first. So what’s new? First, the dial has a minor alteration, which now reads “Water Resistant” instead of “Water Resist”. Second, and most importantly, the Bambino has been upgraded with the F6724 movement, a sibling of the F6922 which debuted with our summer diver watches. The F6724 movement is automatic, hand-winding, and hacking. Additionally, it is a date-only caliber, aligning perfectly with the design, and succeeding the workhorse 48743 movement.

Is this a reissue of the Bambino? Yes and no. The case dimensions and design largely remain unchanged, which makes sense for such a timeless looking watch, and a stalwart of our Classic collection.
