Great gift for someone special
on May 26, 2010
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.
