The New 36mm Classic Date 'Bambino' From Orient

The New 36mm Classic Date 'Bambino' From Orient

Postby Racer-X » March 28th 2019, 10:10pm

"I like things that can be repurposed from their intended use. For example, on my desk is a coffee mug that I use to hold pens. I once lived in an apartment whose previous tenant had left behind a coffee table fashioned from an old door (and not in a college squalor way, but in a well finished artisanal way). There’s an appeal in discovering a hidden use for something, and we may have found one in this new, smaller, Orient Bambino (officially, the Orient Classic Date). Conceived as a ladies piece, this new dressy watch from the budget-focused Japanese brand is actually a perfect classic sized gent’s watch. It also might be a useful gateway for modern watch lovers to explore vintage inspired sizes.

These new Bambinos come in two flavors, differentiated by the handset and bracelet. First we have a version with a basic white dial, black hands, and applied silver toned hour markers. The steel bracelet has a combination of brushed and polished finishes."

Dang. This is the first Orient modern dress watch (I still refuse to use the stupid name from OUSA) that gives me a hardon.
I checked you out, and I now want you to take the journey to lick my taint. It's small, but vast.

Better suited for a strap. And isn't that a lot more than regular Babe Ruths?

So a ladies' watch can be worn as a men's watch? That's hardly repurposing. Now if they were able to use it as a toaster....

Not bad. That's a classic look that never goes out of style. They'll sell gobs of these, particularly at that cheap price point.

I like it. I really like it.
