Case and Crystal
The case and crystal are one of the most striking and distinctive features of this watch. The Orient ER24002W Bambino features a solid rose-gold plated stainless steel case that is 40mm wide and 12mm thick, with a textured push and pull crown. The dimensions of the watch might not be uncommon in contemporary watch designs, but the complete look definitely is. The body of the case itself is uncommonly thin, and the rest is all a thick dome shaped crystal. The crystal is 37mm wide and 4 mm thick. This gives the watch an almost all-crystal appearance that looks amazing. That’s not all- the ER24002W Bambino features an impressive mineral crystal that is practically scratch-free.
Dial and Hands
Along with the case and crystal, the dial and hands of the Orient ER24002W add to the classic styling and retro look of this beautiful watch. The milky white dial is simple and elegant with rose toned hands and hour markers. The dial looks very retro with its pie pan shape that adds more dimension to the watch. The dial also features a tiny date wheel that is elegant and doesn’t take away from the watch’s classic aesthetics. The hands are rose-gold plated stainless steel and dauphin styled to add to the mid 20th century appeal.
This Orient Bambino is powered by the all Japanese 21 jewel Orient Caliber 48743 automatic movement. The movement frequency is 21,600 bph or six beats a second. Although, the seconds hand has a sweep movement, there definitely is a distinct ticking sound.
The Orient ER24002W comes with a 20mm wide genuine leather strap that with rose gold tone buckle clasp. The brown Alligator leather straps add to the retro styling, and give this watch a classic, formal and expensive look.
An elegant timepiece to wear to office or any formal occasion, the Orient ER24002W Bambino is a much more quality watch than the price suggests.
