    Orient Bambino White Dial Options - Blue Hands or Rose Gold Accents

    Hey folks,

    Wanted to poll the threads community on these two watches. I have cream dial and black dial watches, and really love the pearly color of the white dial, so I'm limiting myself to these two options.

    I picked up the white dial, blue hands version and really like it, but now I'm wondering if I should exchange it for the rose gold accents version. On further review it seems like the blue hand option draws the eye to the center of the watch while the rose gold is a bit more even/subtle.

    I know I'm splitting hairs here, but let me know what you think!

    Done.

    I like the cream dial version, but I have another cream dial watch that I wear frequently and the silvery white dial is fantastic in person.

    Rose gold. Finding a rose gold watch that you like can be tough. If this one works for you, go for it. There are plenty of white dial/blue hand options.

    You're right about splitting hairs. Why not both?
    I'd be okay with either choice so I went with option #3.

    My preference would be the rose gold, but both are nice looking watches. You really cant go wrong.

    I have the cream dial version and love the watch. Definitely one of my favs in my rotation.
    That said, with the options you've listed I say the rose gold is the way to go. Cheers.

    I bought the Bambino V2 from Long Island Watch recently (when Joe posted the sale). I was pretty disappointed with it.

    It's a cheap looking watch--and I have been extremely happy with Orient watches before (LOVE the Monterrey). The white dial looked more like a painted on silver. The domed crystal just looked "off" to anyone I asked in person. The roman numerals were also lightly embossed, and again, looked cheap in person. I ended up returning it.

    Big fan of my rose gold. Looks more balanced than the blue hands version, as was intimated in the original post

    I just got the v2 white dial with blue hands. It is awesome. both look great but I wear a lot of blue items, and I always wanted a blue hand watch.
