Orient Bambino II

Orient does it again. Call this old news, it's a classic, so it's always new to me. This watch is absolute class. Would not be surprised to see Don Draper wearing this. It is very, very formal, this watch requires that you're at least wearing a button down. It wears thin like a dress watch should, but the robust domed crystal gives it a nice stance on the wrist. To be honest, I'm not sure if I have the Bambino II version 1 or 2, it is hacking (Second hand stops when setting the time), which is a feature of the second generation Bambino II, but I am not sure if it's hand winding as it started ticking the moment I picked it up. Regardless, this watch is beautiful. The way the hands appear black and then, under the right light, turn bright blue. From what I hear, Orient's time keeping is second to none. The movement is built in Japan, the caseback is not see-through so I'm unsure of how pretty it is, but at this pricepoint- who cares?
