Any chance you'll get more of the 9NO version? Just found this drop & that model is sold out! :(
how bad are custom fees going to be shipping to canada?

shouldn't be too bad...the watch is only $120 usd
How do these compare to the Seiko 5 line of automatics (regularly found more in the $70-80 range)? TIA

Orient's mostly are hand winding and self winds, Seiko 5's are just self winds

Orient is owned by Seiko, but maintains autonomy from its parent. These are great Automatic timepieces, and the Bambino in particular has a loyal following. It is also considered one of the best values available for a dress inspired piece. A lot of the current Seiko 5 line is decidedly sportier than this Bambino. Truthfully you can’t go wrong either way though. cheers
Any chance FAC00008W0 will be added to this drop?
Wow! Version 4 with the grey dial and rose gold hands and markers is so beautiful! The combination of those colours are very unique. Too bad it's already sold out, made my decision for me! Hehe
I dunno what it is about the bubble dome, but it really bothers me (I've never seen it in person that I can recall). Anyone able to chime in on it with their experience, preferably firsthand? Otherwise there is one specific model that I very much want. I just wish it was flat :| Also, can anyone say how loud these are?

They are loud. The domed glass on the black dial ensures that you can't see the time in low light. Wearing mine in bright light as I type this. Predominantly a day watch. Good for work wear but leave it at the office drawer as you head home looking to catch a drink on the way.

I didn't see the other options available so my comments above were for the Black dial. Also have the cream dial and blue hands (13/23 in the list but version 1). That is something that makes me smile. The leather strap is also nice for that price point.
Sold out on both models I want... Guess there's always next time.
300 original price? Oh pls. this one regularly sells for around 100.
Where's the option for the SS case, white dial, with rose gold Roman numeral like showed in the email?
Amazing, the one in the promotional email (silver case, gold heads and markers) isn’t offered?
Plantsmith, could you give me a link?

I picked up the blue last evening for $109.99, free 2 day shipping and no tax.

$125 international shipping. Im not from US :/
Amazon has the blue dial stick hand version for $111.54 and it comes with a 1 year orient warranty.
trying to decide between v3 black and v3 blue. They both look great, what do you guys think?
For one of these Orient Bambinp watch drops, could we please add the version with cream dial and blue hands? I have three others (counting one Capital, which is virtualy identical), and these are PHENOMENAL watches, great=looking and reliable. Agree that they can be found for signifucantly less expensive elsewhere, especially on Amazon and Jomashop (the latter now has the one pictured above for $79).

Jomashop is still showing this exact watch on its current flash sale for $78.83.

Yep, that link worked, but that is for the Classic quartz model. Not the Bambino. Thanks anyway! Seemed to good to be true!
Lmao they ended the last drop early and raised the price of this drop. Plus it's a lot cheaper on Jomashop.
Pretty sad on the part of MD.
The Pepsi Mako II probably has better resell value than a Bambino, @ $130, that's a good price. Usually more expensive. But it will be a good first mechanical dress watch. though.
It's for $114.99 on Amazon with warranty and if you have prime you get it in 2 days.

By "it," which variant are you referring to?
EDIT: 2nd gen, version 1 - https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01NAAQLYY/ref=twister_B07DQ5QP65?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1 2nd gen, version 3 - https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01NAAQLYY/ref=twister_B07DQ5QP65?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1
Others seem more expensive.

Version 1 bambino is $114. Yes the others tend to be like $20 more at most but then again you can find other websites like ebay or longs island watches (especially their scratch and dent section they got really good deals) for cheaper prices and with warranty. I would just think twice and look around before jumping on this drop. Trust me a broken movement replacement ain't cheap.
Mine finally came in today.. Pretty neat

Love it with Morellato strap.
The green dial is $149 on Amazon. Saved 20% on Massdrop at $119. Agree that the warranty issue is concerning, and that Massdrop doesn't ALWAYS have the best deal. But, overall, i am happy with this purchase - have had my eye on this watch for awhile
Why in God's name would anyone want to buy a watch from Massdrop that is more expensive than Amazon, costs more to ship and has NO warranty ????? In my opinion, buying from such an online store with no warranty is borderline illegal.

Not available in the UK through any real dealer from Orient anyway, and the cheapest I can find it is like £200 in stock anyway so for a watch I have wanted for a while it isn't that bad to be fair. I do agree its crazy for anyone in the US though?

Dang, and that one comes with a warranty....
That grey dial one triggers my Bauhaus itch...
Do these not come with a warranty?
For the Orient Envoy drop it says, Included: 1-year manufacturer's warranty. I can't seem to find the same here.

I just recived my Watch today. it tooked 15 Days. I had to Pay 20€ Taxes and 10€ Shiping on top. I love this Warch
I hope you will bring this drop back again soon and with shipping to Europe. Can't wait to add V3 to my collection.
oski
It shipped to Europe, just got mine in Austria
Mr_Lazar
It would not be the first time that Massdrop stopped shipping a product to EU. It depends on distributor that they use and probably whether they are allowed to sell it internationally.
