Orient makes another appearance on this list with a dress watch which is affordable when compared to other dress watches on the market. It’s simple, which makes it suitable for any outfit. A lot of users speak highly of the watch, and this might be due to its price point. However, let’s take a more in-depth look at the Bambino 1.


  • It has a case diameter of 40.5 mm
  • Domed mineral crystal window
  • Case thickness of about 11.8 mm which is perhaps due to the domed crystal window
  • Well fitted crown with the Orient logo
  • Self-winding
  • Date display at the 3 o’clock position
  • Bold face
  • Leather band
  • Buckle clasp
  • Japanese movement
  • Round black face
  • It has the inscription ‘Water Resistant’ on the dial just above the 6 o’clock position
  • Stainless steel bezel


  • Hacking movement
  • Large face makes it easy to read the time
  • Great look
  • Water resistant to a depth of 100’


  • No sapphire crystal window construction like we have become accustomed to
  • Leather might take some time to break in


The 2nd generation Bambino version 1 is perhaps one of the more affordable watches which make this list. It’s simple and looks far more expensive than it is. The leather band is not of the same caliber as that of the Hamilton Khaki Field watch. The band might feel stiff at first, but over time it should become more comfortable.
