This was released last year together with those other gold case and rose gold case models.
Looks like my next office watch to me
Hate to necro an older thread but I just had to respond to this. They didn't get the numeral wrong at all, it's common to see "IIII" on clocks for sure. I have a lovely old wall clock which uses it. From the internet:Amazing how they get the roman numerals completely wrong at VII.... And for the record I much prefer the older variant. That being said I may still get one... :-=
It'll be too large for you, this watch wears large and I have an almost 7 inches wrist. If you like the looks you should try to find something vintage, 1960s/70s Seiko Sportman watches are pretty similar but smaller in size, and you should be able to find one in good condition for less than $100Hate to necro an older thread but I just had to respond to this. They didn't get the numeral wrong at all, it's common to see "IIII" on clocks for sure. I have a lovely old wall clock which uses it. From the internet:
"Both methods of writing Roman numerals have been in use since the 1500s, possibly longer. Clock makers choose whichever number they feel is more aesthetically appealing and they often go with IIII because it balances better with VIII on the other side and makes the clock look more symmetrical"
Having said that, I prefer the original Bambino for sure. I've been lusting after it for awhile but am unsure it wouldn't look ridiculous on my dainty 5.25 in. wrist. I may have to try it out and just give it to the husband of it doesn't work out.
With reference to this combination,
I am going to keep a look out for...
...move the blue hour and minute hands to the second dial(with RG indices) without the blue seconds needle. Then move then whole dial and post modded movement on the second watch to the 3rd RG case. The 3rd watch movement with big hands and indices move to the 2nd SS case. The first case shall be the one left with white satin dial, SS indices RG hour and minute hand, with the blue seconds needle rocking thru the dial...
How's this "ecological" idea? :-d No parts waste, and i get 3 bambinos which others don't get! :-!
Just a little suggestion to blend this into a vintage burberry theme...I have been looking for this colour for quite a while. They have two more options in Silky White and Black but this off white (biscuit colour as the salesman calls it) stands out for me as it gives a totally retro feel. The crown and crystal are typical retro dome type.
