Best affordable dress watch under 200AUD
The Bambino series has a reputation for being the best dress watch option available at this price point.
The high domed crystal is unlike any other watch you're likely to come across.
The dial features sunburst brushing and is also domed, to create visual interest. The tips of the minute and second hands also curve downwards to follow the contour of the dial. This is a feature associated with vintage dress watches from the 50s, and is very cool.
The leather strap is gorgeous.
This watch is 40.5mm size. That's a compromise between the modern average of 42mm, and the classic average of 37mm. I personally think 39.5mm would have been optimal.
The lug width is 21mm, which will be an absolute pain to find a replacement for. It also limits your options of NATO strap, should you wish to wear it that way. (If Daniel Wellington can pull it off, why not the Bambino?)
