It’s an automatic watch, which isn’t surprising. If you know anything about Orient, you’d know how much they love the movement. If you’re a fan of Swiss automatics, get ready to be disappointed as Orient doesn’t produce any.
Japanese automatics aren’t bad, they’re pretty accurate – for an automatic watch that is. To be exact, the F6724 movement
is present. It gives you a 40-hour power reserve, plus the ability to hack and self-wind.
You don’t get a sapphire window. Instead, it’s a mineral one. Mineral isn’t as durable, but it does a good job. This shouldn’t be too much of an issue if you’re careful with handling it.
It comes with a domed window. This gives its face a fish-bowl like look. It certainly stands out next to other watches. That’s not all, its dial is domed too, so the effect is juiced up.
There are thick rhomboid markers that are almost arrow-like. They’re nothing short of clean: who wouldn’t want that? In our opinion, they help with the appearance greatly.
The Bambino is a perfect size
. This is pretty subjective, but we believe that watches measuring 1.57 inches - 1.65 inches (40-42 mm) fit snuggly on most wrists. Well, the Bambino has a 1. 59 inches (40.5 mm) case.
Like any good watch, it’s water-resistant. According to Citizen, the device is resistant up to 100 feet (30 m) underwater. Although this is useful, you shouldn’t test it out. Citizen warns you to not swim with it on.
The Bambino is minimalistic, but when light hits it, it’s going to shine. The watch comes with a sunray dial so it has a metallic-like effect.
If that wasn’t enough, you get a leather strap. The leather feels nice on your hand and makes the device look and feel more expensive than it is. Its minimalistic look and domed effect also help.
Let’s not forget that it comes with a calendar. Most users will find this useful.
