Hey Paulie...come and see da Bambino!

For a guy who's trying to thin the herd, I'm not having a lot of luck.....Amazon price drop, a credit plus gift card got me this today.

40.5mm case, domed crystal, furnace blue hands, and the oddball 21mm strap.
Piss poor cell pics, trying not to get glare of the domed crystal

As it is designed to be a dress watch, it came with a decent black gator grained strap, but I put this reddish brown on as I want to use it for more casual wear. I think the dial color and hands play to that, despite the Roman Numerals (which makes this the only watch I have with them). This will make my last Bambino, I believe. I have the 1st generation for a dress watch and received the champaign dial Small Seconds for a Christmas gift in 2019.

In my opinion, they're a tremendous value, all things considered.

All in all, I think I did OK....whaddaya think, Paulie?

Probably a great watch being an Orient, definitely great value, but I don't like Roman numerals so it would be a no-go for me.
That's what gave me pause as well, but the dial color and hands lets me live with them

A most excellent addition. Haven't seen a Bambino that I didn't like.

The Roman numerals are what attracted me.
