    May I ask where you bought it for 79? Saw one with brown leather strap on amazon for 99, but I'm looking for a black leather strap like this one.

    Long Island Watch was having a sale on the Orient Capital at $79, which has apparently ended - they are selling them for $99 as I write this. Interesting they were simultaneously selling it on Amazon for $99. Maybe after Christmas they'll put the Capital on sale again.

    By the way, the strap is actually a very dark brown, so dark that it can almost pass as black. But it's not.

    Thanks I saw the watch on their website and was unsure if that was the one. The aviator watch looks pretty interesting and I think I'm going with one instead but can't decide on green or beige. I plan on purchasing the Toscana PANERAI Style Tan Italian Leather Strap to go with either watch.

    ^ Long Island is as legit as they come. I've purchased couple of divers from there in the past.

    I picked up that same Bambino as well. My daily wear is a Hamilton X Wind so thought the vintage dress look on the bambi would be a nice change.

    Great, thanks for the reply! I was hoping to switch out the band for a nato strap anyway.

    I've purchased from Long Island Watch and they have excellent customer service and ship fast. They sell on Amazon as well if you want more reviews.
