Most readers would be aware that I have always found Orient Bambinos to be great value for money
Simple, classic design with a pretty decent automatic movement that ages well. In my opinion, there are very few other watches that one can get for under $200 that ticks so many boxes and many of my friends have over time acquired one – based on my recommendation of course.
It was quite a happy coincidence when I turned up to work one day and where 3 of us were wearing our Bambinos.
The Thai version commemorating 20 years of Orient watches being sold in Thailand is flanked by two 50th Anniversary Jubilee of Singapore as a nation. Simple, classic watches with just that added feature that makes them a little unique.
Whenever I am asked what is good watch for under $500, one of thr brands I always recommend is an Orient.
