It is as classic as Disney Bambi... but is an Orient Bambino

Orient Classic Automatic Bambino ER2400AW

Last Sunday evening, after a heavy dinner, decided to wondering around Delta Mall, Sibu. A good friend has just recently opened a watches retail and services outlet inside the up-scaled shopping mall. 

Ladies and Gentlemen, may I introducing Perfect Time...... I would say it is among the leading watch retailers in town. Perfect Time is the authorised dealer for famous brand names like Tissot, Epos, Seiko, Alba, Orient, Casio, Vostok, O.T.S, Suunto, Seastar, and yes my favourite Titoni. Apart from the above, the shop also dealing with heavy weighted brands like Rado, Omega, Rolex, Longines, IWC, Panerai and etc. 

I went there just for a walk without my camera and my handphone, therefore didn't take any photo of the shop as most bloggers would do. The photo that I posted here is from Perfect Time's facebook. You can go and like their facebook and from time to time, there will be some attractive offers. I think they are also offering online services too. 

Well back to the story about Bambi...... naaaaaah Bambino..... I was browsing through windows and cabinets of watches display before set my eyes on this one at the Orient cabinet. 

Hidden at one corner of the cabinet, away from the mighty rays of Orient Stars..... Four nonidentical  quartets differentiate only by their appearance of their dials and bracelet material..... these very fine looking ordinary Orients are from the newly launched Orient Bambino series.

The Bambino is Orient's Classic Automatic series. They are the fusion between timeless classic appearance and the state-of-the-art mechanism precision..... The marriage of two key successful ingredients making these watches irresistible.

It is relatively difficult to choose among the four..... All with its own characteristics.... After much struggling, I finally settled for this one, ER2400AW.....

This is a 40.5mm round stainless steel case watch with antique-looking stainless steel mesh bracelet. The convex crystal glass and the protruding retro styling crown give the watch a distinctive image. 

Another attraction is the dauphine blue coloured hands that make time telling an effortless act. The beautiful silver Roman markers really stand out from the white dial. 

The Bambino has screw in beveled caseback with Orient logo. If open the case, you will see the Orient self-winding 48743 calibre. This Orient in-house 21 jewels movement does not hack and cannot be handwinded. It is beating at 21,600 A/h and has a 40 hours power reserve. This series of watches are water resist to 30 meters. 

The clasp of the meshed bracelet is engraved with the word Orient..... The only disappointment is that the crown is unsigned. 

The Bambino is a true reflection of the heritage and excellent watch making....
