Product Description

A delightfully classy timepiece for the man with a passion for style, this Bulova timepiece's black leather band, Roman numeral hour markers and stainless steel square frame create a seriously sophisticated accessory. A small window gives the wearer a peek into the self-winding mechanical movement and gives the watch a stylish mechanical look.

Bulova

Timex

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.

    There is no question that Bulova has really been making really good watches lately, and have really caught up with the class that brands like Stauer and Stuhrling have made with their Men's automatic watches. This one is definitely no acception with this classic Bulova Leather Strap Watch. It is a delightful and classic watch in a rectangular face and leather strap that shows and definitely displays absolute class and style in the design and distinction of the watch. Also, it is also a nice change of pace, especially with so many watches being absolutely overdubbed with the skeletal face on the watch for the past several years. I definitely like the easy winding and automatic watch for anyone looking for a everlasting watch to wear for anything you wear it with.

    This is a great watch for the price. It is pretty accurate, and in my experience only loses 3-6 seconds a day which is great for an automatic of it's price. Wish it had a sapphire crystal instead of a mineral one, but that is my only complaint.

    Tank-style watches are still a relevant style, although you don't see too many these days. This one is a classic tank style, but "updated" in size; about 33mm in width (without the crown)...i.e. its bigger and chunkier than the slim, tiny-sized tanks were in the past. But its not overwhelmingly large either. Construction and finish seem to be very good to excellent. A Swiss movement would have been great, but the Japanese Miyota is fine and keeps very good time. The second hand does not "hack" but most vintage tank watches didn't hack either. The "open heart" is a litte distracting and it does obscure the hands when they are in the 6 to 8 o'clock positions, but it adds an interesting look to the watch--it brings a smile to see the balance wheel whirling away. Water resistance is minimal, but this is not a dive watch--so it should not be submerged or worn swimming anyway. 24mm strap is a solid, thick gator-grained leather. Price was very reasonable. Its a classic and very well done for the price.

    Update July 2014:
    Somehow I managed to lose this watch a couple of months after I wrote this review. I figured, "oh well"; I have enough watches so I can live without it. A few months later and I realized that I truly missed this one. So I finally bit the bullet and bought another. I just got it and I am glad to have it back. The new one is just as high-quality and nicely finished as the original one. I've found that NOT to be the case with some items I've replaced in the past. So now I'm enjoying it again and I'll try to keep better track of it this time.

    Bulova has outdone itself with this timepiece. Cartier looks at a Casio price. Okay, that may be a bit of a stretch in both directions, but purchase it and you'll see my point.

    The face of this watch is simple, elegant, and classic. It is relatively easy to read. The open heart design is flashy but not too distracting. Skeleton watch faces get a lot of attention and compliments from non-aficionados, but after the glow fades they are less functional as a timepiece. I personally would have preferred this watch only have the back exhibition window but it does look cool.

    The mineral glass is curved and limits viewing angles. It does, however, have a relatively wide viewing angle allowing you to see the time without necessarily looking at the watch. If you've never had a curved glass watch face, you won't know how important that is until you have to suffer through a meeting or an interview while trying to subtly scope out the time with a curved face watch...you'd be surprised how often you want to check the time without moving your wrist. This watch allows it to an extent.

    The watch is large but not obnoxiously so. The watch is thin enough to not excessively bother the dress shirt wearer by constantly hanging up on cuffs. I'm generally a fan of thin, small watches but this watch is fine. If you are a gentleman who likes wearing Big Ben on his wrist, this may not be for you. In a world of obnoxiously large men's wrist watches, this is a healthy "medium" sized watch.

    The Japanese Miyota movement is great...but my one complaint is that the second hand does not hack rendering it impossible to synchronize. Considering the relatively poor accuracy of this watch, that feature is not critical. Still, it is fun to track the long term accuracy of the watch.
