Hey-yo: I purchased this watch on the drop 11 months ago. Beginning this month, the date complication ceased operation. Just letting folks know for FYI purposes; only for those interested! I echo OdsZulu on Orient making it inhumanly possible to honor their 12 mo guarantee, so I'm taking the lazy way out and just dealing with it.

Unlucky for you. I bought it in June, 2015 and its still working fine

I'm sure most work just fine, but you take that risk on a sub $100 automatic. Just warning folk that if they pull a bad one, there's no assistance from Orient.
The drop says that after 200 requests, you'll contact the vendor to launch the drop. Right now, it shows 874 requests.
Any update on the drop?

Not enough inventory is available for a drop currently.

Do you know if there will ever be more inventory, given the model has been replaced by version 3?
If anyone is still monitoring this thread, will the Bambino ever return to Massdrop? I'm looking for a grad gift, and the white with blue accent watch would be perfect. Thanks!

I certainly hope it will! The main thing is that it's just very hard to get enough inventory - last time we did this we sold 600 in about a day, so it's hard to secure enough units to make the drop feasible. We'll keep trying though!
When will this be available again?
Well it was in "repair" for 2 months and it is STILL NOT WORKING. Garbage watch, terrible service , I had to send it to the US. So with shipping and customs I did not save any money on the watch. CANADIAN DO NOT BUY IT! Go for a watch that has a repair depo in Canada.
Just received, very beautiful. Mechanism noise very normal typical analog level.

Anyone have any time accuracy problems with their watch? Mine gains 10-20seconds a day...that's not normal.
Mine still long way too go.

Thank you for the tip AlanGee! My watch arrived two days ago (Black dial, silver hands) and it looks gorgeous. Picture don't describe the look and feel of this watch with justice.
First watch done.
Received my watch today. Got hit with an additional $27 in customs charges, which was a bit of a downer.
Received my watch yesterday (white w/ blue hands) - gorgeous! I agree with others that the rotor makes some noise, but I love it nonetheless. Great drop!
Received mine in OZ ...thanks ...nice watch. I might want a different strap down the track though this onesa bit glossy. Anyone find a nice replacement ?
I still haven't received mine

The majority of the domestic US orders are being received around now, so if you're in the US, it should be arriving shortly. Also, you can always check your tracking info to see if there are any hold ups from your end.
My watch is in a sort facility for 5 days already. I'm used to getting stuff from reputable sellers from Asia in a week tops. I hope it's just DHL's way of handling updates, and I'll see that the package is in EU soon. I wish Massdrop would let me pick shipment plan, with some things I don't really care if it gets here in 2 months, with others I want it at customs NBD..
Watch received. Looks great. Really beautiful watch.
Got mine today. Wish it had a better crown, not the biggest fan of this diamond type one.
Anyone else notice their rotor is extremely noisey to the point of sounding broken?

You can use superfine steel wool & Silvo polish, or Cape Cod Wipes, to get the scratches off of the polished lugs.

Thanks AlanGee, I'll definitely look into it. Loving the watch. The white dial looks great with a tan leather strap. This has got to be one of the prettiest watches Orient makes.
Great news group! We’re happy to report that all of the orders have been shipped out from our warehouse and are now on the way to you! Please allow 24-48 hours for tracking to get into the shipper's system and start updating.
If there’s anything else we can do to make your Massdrop experience better, feel free to contact us via “Contact Support” button in your transaction page: https://www.massdrop.com/transactions.
Missed this one for just a bit... I hope to get in the next one. Although I would prefer a creme option too.
Already bought the previous drop version 2 and now again I bought with this current one with blue hands. Yay me. Please bring the Seiko SKX line or the Orient Blue Ray. Thank you :):):)
My balls are tingly with anticipation.
An exciting update! The group’s order was picked up from the vendor and is now on its way to our warehouse in New Jersey. Given the tracking information provided, our warehouse team expects the shipment to come in by 9/7 and will be ready to get the order repacked and off to you as soon as it comes in.
Occasionally the shipment experiences a delay en route, but rest assured that we will keep the group updated throughout the entire process and let you know if something causes it to be set back.
We are thankful for your continued patience and you can expect an update from us by the end of the day Pacific Time on 9/9 or earlier if anything comes up.

Woo mine shipping out to me
Canadian customers! You are taking a chance if you buy this watch. They only repair it in the US, You have to pay for shipping both ways and since they are using UPS or Fedex there is a $60.00 brokers fee from the courier company. My watch lasted 5 weeks before it broke by itself. Conclusion if there is no repair in Canada do not buy a watch from Massdrop. Customs and shipping will get you!
It’s a go! Thanks to all of you for being a part of this successful drop. We have submitted the group’s order with the vendor for the Orient Bambino (Version 2) Watch. They are currently preparing the shipment and once we receive it at our warehouse in New Jersey, we’ll separate everything into individual orders and send them out to you! We expect your orders will be in transit from our warehouse by 9/15.
In the meantime, we’ll do everything we can to update you on information we receive from the vendor about your order status so you know the location of your order throughout the process.
Thanks again for being a part of this community! You can expect an update from us by the end of the day Pacific Time on 9/1 .

Hi Tyler, We've got 210 people that have requested the watch in the last week. (That's got to be some sort of record!) Any chance of running this drop again sometime soon? All the best from Australia.
mashup
Hey mashup - since we just dropped this a week or so ago, we completely depleted the vendor's stock so there are no more to sell! Once they have good stock again we'll try to get it up, but my hunch is that it won't be for another couple of months. You're right that having those requests does help, though!
Makes me nervous that so many people are dealing with defective units with no response from massdrop
cmbezln
I will never buy on other watch from this company, They just don't want to fix it Keep al receipts and all packaging. If you don't have it they will NOT fix it
Can we request it again? I really want it.
Super excited for this watch!! Its gonna look great!
If someone wants to switch to a black from a white and notify me so I can pick up a white, that'd be great. -winkwink-
Just bought a white one!
