    It is now a fortnight since I have bought, and worn with a sense of substantial satisfaction, this fine work of mechanical engineering. But before getting to the Bambino Small Seconds RA-AP0003S10B, a word about the buying process and the fulfilment of the order: Full marks to M/s Jethmalani Enterprises for accepting my reluctance to use an online payment system and offering the option of buying the merchandise through a payment to their bank account. And that the shipping was prompt and wristwatch delivered within 20-hours – yes, less than twenty-four hours – in a robust packaging that ensured the pristine condition of the material.

    I have deliberately waited two-weeks to write the review as I have kept a frequent watch (no pun intended) on the accuracy of the Orient calibre F6222 movement by comparing it very twelve hours with an online atomic clock reading – and the conclusion is that the accuracy is quite impressive. On receiving the Bambino, I hand-wound it to get it started, and found that in the next two days, it had gained about 16-seconds. By the third day, however, it seemed to have slowed down by 2-seconds and remained so for the next few days. Given that it was not gaining or losing time, I reset the time and now it works almost very, very accurately – a 1- or 2-second variance from an atomic clock reading will not have the sky fall on my head! So its wee inaccuracy is fine with me.

    About the cosmetics: The colour tone of the dial on the website is not at all like the real thing; the ‘sunburst’ pale ivory dial is actually far more beautiful than that. The steel hands on this background colour are not hard to read in any light. The steel casing looks and feels very solid and the see-thru/display back is a feature that enhances the value of the purchase. That said, the domed crystal of the face is an element that one must note needs care. This is a dress watch – and I would imagine that when worn under a full-sleeve shirt, the cuff offers a fair degree of protection from any untoward contact that could potentially disfigure the clear mineral crystal. The high-quality patterned brown leather strap adds to the classic ‘old- fashioned and ‘retro’ look of the Bambino. One more point – the notched rim of the crown permits an easy and firm grip to the fingers.

    A couple of things that I would have liked in this Bambino: First, the styling of the hands – I think it would have been far more classy if Orient would have ‘leaf’ hands instead of the triangular-cut design. And next, the size and position of the seconds dial – situated where it is, above the six o’clock indice, it is visually very aesthetic, however owing to the size of the seconds-dial and the aft-extension of the hour and minute hands, reading or setting the seconds at and to the ‘0’ mark is somewhat a small challenge – but it wouldn’t be for those who are not finicky about accuracy.

    Overall, the Bambino Small-Seconds is a beauty that is more than worth the price tag Orient puts on it. It should surprise no one if the Bambino is bestowed with the honour of a becoming a family heirloom and a legacy from a father to a son.

    Great service, my watch was shipped the same day and I received it in less than 24 hours.

    The watch looks great – the finish is similar to a watch that would cost a lot more. Very happy with my purchase.
