Bambino, Mako or Ray?

IDK that I'd consider that an equal comparison. The Bambino is an entirely different beast than either of those divers. If you're trying to determine one purchase than I'd first eliminate one of the divers and compare against the Bambino. Some questions I'd ask myself:
  • does this watch make me smile?
  • is it similar to other watches I already have in my collection?
  • would I reach for this watch over my _________ (insert any similar watch here)
  • how often would worn/what is your day to day like?
My two cents - I'd take the Ray for the diver. I like the indices instead of the numerals and slightly prefer the handset used versus the Mako.
