new style from orient.

superb design, very slim, and sapphire to boot.

granted it's quartz but i actually like having a quartz watch in rotation with my manual wind and automatics because I know it's always set and I can use it for activities like tennis.

can't say enough about this design. they really nailed it because the v3 bambino was a real disappointment.

This is actually a pretty slick watch for the price, not a bad deal.

$100 for an Orient Quartz is not a good deal. Sorry.

to clarify, the bambino 3. i don't like the 2 because I don't like Roman numerals. love the simplicity of the v3 but don't understand the use of large hour hand that doesn't even match up with the minutes hand. the v1 is great as is.

Orient makes some of the highest quality "budget priced" time pieces I've ever seen. Really well built and quality materials/movements that keep up with some mid-tiered major brands. From an outsider perspective I see the confusion on folks face when they see the name ORIENT. I know they feel like they've invested in building this brands name, but they should do a sub-brand with a more luxurious name.
