Product Description

The Bulova Men's Mechanical Hand-Wind Automatic Strap Silver White Dial Watch showcases a textured white dial with a discrete skeleton window that creates a refined, expressive face worthy of business and casual wear. Constructed with a stainless steel case, the watch includes a stationary stainless steel bezel, and a black leather wristband secured with a push-button-deployment clasp. A durable mineral window shields the textured white dial, which features silver-tone hour markers, slim black minute indexes, and silver watch hands. A unique skeleton window rests between five and eight o'clock. Powered by Japanese-automatic movement, the timepiece is water resistant to 99 feet (30 M). It is presented in a padded Bulova watch case.



In 1875, a young Czech immigrant named Joseph Bulova set up shop in New York City, and a legendary American watch brand was born. Bulova was trained as a jeweler, and his expertise carried over into his watchmaking career, which began around 1911 with boudoir clocks and pocket watches, and soon evolved to include what was then one of the latest and most fashionable technological innovations: the wristwatch.

Bulova introduced its first line of wristwatches in 1919. The company grew and prospered, and soon early radio and television ads were declaring, "America runs on Bulova time." In the 1950s, continuing its legacy of innovation, Bulova introduced Accutron, the first electronic watch, and the first breakthrough in timekeeping technology in over 300 years. The Accutron timing mechanism was later adapted for use by NASA computers and a Bulova timer was even placed on the moon to control transmissions of data. Bulova timepieces have kept official time aboard Air Force One and have also served as official timepieces for U.S. Olympic teams.

Today, Bulova maintains its tradition of excellence in technology and design, offering a diverse collection of beautiful precision timepieces for every occasion.

    When I first saw the watch, the watch face was bigger than I expected. I compared it to my friends' watches, and the face is bigger than their watches. But after looking at it a couple more days, I got used to it. However, this watch is definitely not for those with smaller wrists.

    The watch design itself is very beautiful. The face is simple, yet elegant, and the opening in the front adds an interesting detail to the watch. The clear back is also fun to look at.

    The clasp mechanism takes a little getting used to, but you get the hang of it after a little while.

    The ticking of the watch is a little louder than I expected though. When I put my citizen watch on my desk, I don't hear the ticking at all; however, I can hear the Bulova's ticking very clearing when it's next to me on the table. For those who prefer a quieter watch, maybe this isn't for you.

    If you do get this watch, remember to wind it up a lot when you first get it. If you don't wind it up enough at first and you don't wear it the next day, it will stop. Remember to wind it before hand if you are not going to wear the watch for a day.

    All in all, if you want a beautiful, simple, elegant watch without the expensive price tag, this is the watch for you. The only thing I would add would be a date window. However, I bought the watch knowing it did not show the date, so I won't complain about that. I chose this watch for its look and design, and it definitely lived up to that. People will definitely compliment your watch when you wear it.

    I loved this watch, however, 3 months after I bought it the metal borders around the openings in the front (where you can see the watch's guts) fell off. This had happened before to me on another watch that I accidentally dropped, however, this one hadn't received any bump or hard hit. I was actually wearing it and when I looked at the time I found the minutes hand tangled with the metal circles. Now is off to be repaired...

    I'm 60 years old and have been wearing a wristwatch since I was 18. I've worn Timex,Hamilton, Seiko, Omega, Rolex and Bulova wristwatches. I wear my watches 24/7 and I am rough on my watches. I owned the 96A111 for a week now and it has performed well. I haven't worn it in the shower yet as it has a leather wrist band. I've played golf and tennis with it on and was caught in a rain storm out on the golf course. I was drenched but there was no fogging of the crystal; it seems quite water tight. It has maybe lost 1-2 seconds. The reviewer that wrote his watch lost 2-3 minutes in one week should send it back. It is not working properly. The reviewer that stated he could hear his watch on the table should probably send his back for repair also as I have to put my watch to my ear to hear it ticking. I'm 5'9' tall and weigh 155 pounds. Yes, this is a big watch and I have small wrists but the watch wears comfortably on me and I became use to it in no time. All things considered, the 96A111 is an excellent wristwatch at a great price. Amazon service was prompt and as advertised. You can't go wrong with this watch or its price. Good job, Amazon !!!

    I was in the market for a new watch. My requirements were
    1) leather band
    2) deployment buckle
    3) automatic
    4) stainless steel bezel

    With those few requirements I had a ton of options. Most of which were in the 2-5k price range.

    I then stumbled on this gem. It's exactly what I wanted and super reasonable price. I get tons of compliments and my colleagues and friends are genuinely shocked when I tell them how inexpensive it is.

    I have not experienced issues with it losing time after several days or even a week.

    Without using a watch winder it will usually continue to tick as long as I don't have it off for more than 12 hours and it's well wound.

    Very well built, very nice looking, amazing price, perfect size (I am 6'3").

    Thank you Bulova for saving me thousands of dollars!

    I received my watch about 10 hours ago. This is my review after spending a day with this item.

    I bought this watch after researching watches on Amazon and some watch forums. I was attracted to the watch for several reasons. I like the fact that it is a mechanical watch as I am for some reason drawn to gears and moving parts. It's like you can look back at how things used to be made. Also, no batteries to replace!

    I love the small window on the front. You can see the gears that move the second hand and when you just glance at the watch, it seems to have a heartbeat as the gears quickly move. The window on the back shows all of the internals but not much movement. If you wind it, you will see many gears moving.

    I've read complaints from people about the size of the watch. I am a pretty normal sized (American) guy at 6'2 and 225 lbs. I think this watch fits my wrist perfectly. It's not gaudy or disproportional to my arm. It is thicker than other watches but I've seen Invicta watches that are much thicker. I guess if I have anything I would change, it would be slightly thinner.

    The band is stiff as others have stated but I easily worked that out by simply bending the band and rolling it in between my thumb and forefinger. After and hour of wearing it, it was fine. The clasp is tricky at first but I don't have a problem with it. It seems you could remove the clasp mechanism and put a D ring on to make a normal band or you could just change out the whole band but I don't see the point in that yet.

    I don't hear any ticking unless I hold the watch up to my ear. If I shake the watch, I can faintly hear the auto-wind mechanics inside it making noise but it is soft and goes away within seconds.
