Did I screw up?

So in a fit of watch fever, I bought a Lorier Zephyr in white dial and a Bambino 38 in white dial. Obviously, these look very different but now I’m worried their use overlaps. They’re both dressier watches. Both white faces. Now I humbly come to you for logic. Can I (and you) articulate different situations where one would be worn over another?

Coordinate your attire and accoutrements accordingly. Buy a red tie maybe? Or ditch the red straps and put it on brown

·

The bambino for everyday office use, the Lorier for meetings and impressing your boss. There, done.

·

There's no such thing as screwing up by buying similar looking watches. I sometimes think I have too many black-faced watches...but then all of them still get wrist time.  And I agree with @TalkingDugong , one is perhaps a bit more dressy than the other...

·

Different situations for use:

bambino for when you feel like wearing a Bambino

Zephyr for when you feel like wearing the Zephyr. 

We talk a lot about watches for certain occasion, but at the end of the day nobody is going to look at either of these watches and think they look out of place. If you bought them both it is probably because you like them both. I’m sure you’ll have no problems finding excuses to wear either one. But if you only keep one make sure it is the zephyr because that thing is gorgeous!

Easy. One seems to have a black strap the other a brown. When wearing a suit white faces always work but brown belts and shoes go with brown straps. The Orient can also be worn daily no problem. The Lorier probably wouldn't work so well with baggy jeans and a hoodie.

@MegaBob said it right, 100% agree. However, black cap-toe Oxfords are more formal than any given brown shoe and at the same time the Zephyr is dressier than the Bambino (in short: I'd swap strap colors).

·

no worries mate!! It all depends on your mood that day. If you feel a bit rounded go with the bambino and if you feel like a bit funky tonneu ‘sh day go with lorier …

😉

The Bambino to enjoy as a Bambino, the Lorier to enjoy as a Lorier. If you can afford it, which you obviously can, why worry about having more than one watch for an occasion?

·

Haha i have to be honest and say that i would always chose the Lorier over the Bambino. What a sexy watch!

Spot on.  Different color leather straps and coordinate with belt and shoe color.

These are totally different (wink) 😉😉. Bambino is a perfect everyday watch - a casual wear for every situation, while Lorier seems to fit with dressy situation, business meeting and stuff. 

·

Bambino is innocuous and practical, Lorier more of a classy (I daresay fancy, in a good way) statement. There's some Venn diagram usage overlap, but the differences exceed the similarities.

I would not have the Bambino on a black band, whereas I might have the Lorier on one. Conversely, the Bambino could go on a NATO or whatever but I would find that too sporty for the Lorier.

·

Different situations...hmm... let me see... 

How about odd days and even days?  

They're both awesome watches.  Personally, I think they are both dressy, but the Orient is subdued whereas the Lorier stands out.  But even if they felt the same, who cares?  Enjoy them both!   

·

Well I think they a have completely different vibes. I have like 4 black dial dive watches that's overlap lol.

Side note I need to convince myself I don't need that Zephyr now. I'd go black dial I think.

Arrived!

Both look great! You can rotate them as you please. Having 2 dress watches doesn’t seem like a bad idea at all.
