2nd Generation Orient Bambino Version 3 Pieces Have Been Released!
By: Kaz Mirza
If you’re constantly waiting for new Orient Bambino news like me, then it’s time to pay attention. Orient USA has released the 2nd generation of Bambino Version 3 pieces and they’re available now on OrientWatchUSA.com!
So the 3rd Version of the Orient Bambino stands apart from the other iterations of the iconic (and frankly awesome) line due to its modern contemporary and minimal look. What you’ll see most prevalent on this piece is its use of clean, vertical lines as seen in the bar indices and bold rectangular hands. Balancing the overall design aesthetic of the Orient Bambino Version 3 is a refreshing sunburst finish on the dial.
Now the Orient Bambino Version 3 also features design traits that are quite notable across all Bambino iterations – namely, a domed crystal and a domed dial. It also features the very cool Orient F6724, an in-house movement equipped with manual winding, hacking, and an automatic rotor.
Currently, the Orient Bambino Version 3 is available in three colors: Graphite Grey (FAC0000CA0), Royal Blue (FAC0000DD0), and Stark White (FAC0000EW0). A fourth color, Jet Black (FAC0000DB0), will be released in late June 2017, so keep an eye out!

I’m partial to that Graphite Grey, but what does the #watchfam think? Sound off in the comments below and totally share this announcement if you think anyone would be interested in it!

While sharing the same strong fondness for all things horologically-affordable as Mike (his TBWS partner in crime), Kaz’s collection niche is also focused on vintage Soviet watches as well as watches that feature a unique, but well-designed quirk or visual hook.
