Is This the Best Value in Watches?

It just might be.

When it comes to watches and value, Seiko is the most common name thrown around by watch snobs.

Sometimes you'll hear a chirp about Timex or how a Rolex can hold its price tag. But nine out of ten times, it's Seiko, Seiko, Seiko.

But, honestly? It has some serious competition from Orient, another group of Japanese watchmakers crafting beautifully designed timepieces with their own in-house movements for over a half-century. 

One of their most iconic models, the Bambino, is an under-the-radar, mid-century dress watch that comes at a head-scratchingly low price of just $169. Yes, for real.

In-house Calibre F6724 automatic movement with date. Hand-wound. Premium stainless steel case. Domed crystal for enhanced readability and strength. Black leather strap with stainless steel buckle. It's everything you'd want in a simple dress watch and nothing you don't, all at a price nobody can disagree with. 

Available in three different dial colors – Navy, Black, Grey – this is the perfect watch for the kind of person who appreciates quality at value and classic style over a flashy name
