Good looking watch.

Personally, the bracelet doesn't work for me - but being a Bambino mark, I'd still take one.

One of the best values in the whole industry.

While I personally loathe the name Bambino, as T says above, it's one of the best values in the trade. You can buy one of these, gray, for about a buck and a quarter, and own a serious automatic watch that will last for many years. Or, you can buy one of those MVMT pieces of Chinese-made quartz pieces of fucking shit, for about the same money, which is a piece of fucking shit and last a couple of years. Then, you could wise the fuck up and buy an Orient, and a year later you could afford a new porkpie hat, and the year after, a pair of skinny jeans, and a year after that, a sex change, since all the gen Zer's are fucking gender fluid like fucking mercury anyway.

And, you still be wearing the Orient.

The correct pronoun is APACHE INBOUND!
