Following up with our sub-$200 Orient recommendation, we’ve got another Orient, the Bambino — one of Orient’s most popular models, for good reason. This one goes full-on retro, courtesy of its domed crystal, with the effect further enhanced by the dauphine hands and stylized indices. The white-dialed version on a brown strap is perfect for the office, or you could opt for the black/black combination for a dress piece, all with a neo-retro flair.
Of course, if vintage watch looks aren’t quite your thing, perhaps you’d prefer something a bit more iconic. If that’s you, then the Mondaine Big Day/Date Mesh is a great option. This one takes it’s styling from the clocks made famous on the Swiss Rail lines, adding in a large date display and pairing things to a mesh bracelet (which, if you’ve not experienced, are quite comfortable). For fans of the rails, or clean, bold style, this Mondaine is a great choice.
