This Orient Bambino is elegant and understated, although is has a significant wrist presence with a diameter of 40.5mm without crown. The thickness is 11mm, making it easy to hide under a sleeve.
Our favourite is the version 2 generation 2, which is already a few years old. It has a cream dial and gorgeous blue hands. If you're willing to overcome the 21mm lug width, it's a perfect watch collection starter.
