    Orient Bambino or Union?

    http://orientwatchusa.com/mens/classic-watches/ev0s005w Union
    http://orientwatchusa.com/mens/classic-watches/er24005w Bambino

    Both end up south of $200 with the FALL2012 discount code FYI. Thoughts on which to go for?

    This might be splitting hairs, but I think they are very different watches. The union is dressy, but definitely more casual with the DAY at the top and more cluttered dial. Also, the colors of the two watches do not have exactly analogous versions. Were you looking for a black dress watch or brown?

      I know the Bambino's strap looks black, but it's actually brown.

      Also, I work in a business casual environment so the difference in dressiness is pretty insignificant to me.

        I personally think the Bambino is the way to go. It's the one I'm currently pining over.

          UPDATE

          Ordered the Symphony http://orientwatchusa.com/mens/execu...tches/er27007w as the Bambino is out of stock and the two are virtually identical. Only differences are the Bambino has a domed case and the Symphony has a more standard 22 mm lug. Will post review upon receipt.

            I liked the Union because it stood out a bit better, white with silver edge looked sharp. Bambino seemed to get "washed" out with its colour scheme.

            Both are nice though, too bad Orient won't ship to Canada...bastards.

              Yeah, I ordered my Orient Mako from another site, don't remember which one. Too bad most of them don't have a lot of choice.

                The Union looks sharp!
