Orient Bambino V3 Review

If you spend enough time around entry level mechanical timepieces, chances are that you are familiar with the Orient Bambino. Prior to this review, I was vaguely aware of the watch. They show up on my Instagram feed and frequently make Top “X” lists in their price range.
There isn’t much middle ground on the Orient Bambino – people either love it or they hate it. I was very eager to see for myself what side of that love/hate fence I would land on after spending time with one.

Nice review. I have a couple of Bambinos. Not too many watches with an in house automatic movement that I can afford. I like the vintage look and many vintage are too small for me ..34-36mm and you have to worry about maintenance.

I've always had a soft spot for the Bambino - the only watch to this day I paid about 100 smackers for that in no way looks (or runs) like a $100 watch. Other than the Seiko 5, the best intro bang for the buck out there.
