    Birdynamnam has a Bambino. He posted a few photos in the Orient thread in the Japanese watch sub-forum.

    Yes William.. i have a black dial one in my collection.. and i honestly like it! a lot!

    it is one of my most accurate automatic.. spot on accuracy.. i might lost 1 or 2 secs on the wrist if i wear it a lot but will gain 1 - 2 secs dial up during the night.. so i once wear it for stright 2 weeks and it is perfectly spot on.
    it is 21 jewels movement based on old seiko mechanical... a bit loud rotor but i have never have problem with this one.

    the size is about 40.5mm and odd 21mm lug. it come in glossy croc faux, so please excuse my dull home made strap for this one since i have to made a special 21mm wide one to fit it perfectly.

    it is less than 12mm thick but wear slimmer since the height mostly taken by the dome mineral glass. actually the dome crystal and curved hands are part of the charm.

    i'm biased.. i just love this watch =)
    i cant have vintage luxury, but this modern version scratch the itch =D

    some picts for you..

    one night I dreamed I was locked in my fathers watch, with Ptolemy and twenty one ruby stars mounted on spheres and the primum mobile coiled and gleaming to the end of space and the notched spheres eating each other's rinds to the last tooth of time and the case closed - John Ciardi ...
