The last release for the updated Bambino line is the FER24008B0 in a stunning rose gold tone. Even though it is being released last it doesn’t mean we think it’s the lesser: it’s an extremely handsome dress watch that comes at an unbelievable bargain. If you’re looking for a classic watch in rose gold, this is it.
The FER24008B features a matte black dial that is similarly domed to the crystal above it. All accents are in rose gold tone, which help sets off the dressy look of the piece. The antique (or onion) styled crown is a very unique design feature as well. The date window is white with black text which increases the readability and really provides that much more of utility.
The sandwich case is amazing, especially a look from the side. The sides of the case are brushed stainless steel while the top is fully polished. The case back is actually not rose gold in color, but rather in a silver, mirror like stainless steel. The screw case back also features a laser etched Orient logo with additional information about the watch spec and case number. The new Bambino comes with a standard black embossed crocodile patterned strap that is a great contrast to the muted black dial. It matches the simmer of the rose gold tone.
The FER24008B retails at $280, but can be had for an astonishing $196 if you use code ‘fall2013’.
