    Very nice timepiece. I received a pretty healthy tax refund this year and decided to do something out of the ordinary and treat myself to a new watch. It looks even nicer in person than in the photograph. A bit on the larger side of the size spectrum but it doesn't look too big on me and I have small wrists, so I assume it won't be too large for the average wearer. Very solidly built, comparable to a lot of higher end watches I've handled. Feels a bit heavy to wear but hey, I wouldn't expect a tough watch to feel light and flimsy. Keeps pretty darn good time as well, although you can't expect quartz accuracy from an automatic. I wound it a few times out of the box and it's been ticking since the day it was delivered. As long as you're committed to wearing it, it should work for years, obviously without needing a battery. It's really quite snazzy-very modern but it also has a sort of old school art deco feel to it as well. The rubber strap adds an element of versatility. You can dress this up (I've worn it with a suit and gotten a number of compliments) or dress it down (I wear it to class every day and it doesn't look out of place when I'm in street clothes). It could definitely pair well with some aftermarket stainless steal bracelets or leather straps if you're looking to make a dress watch out of it. However, I have not done any tests in regards to water resistance. Unfortunately I've heard some of these mid to low level Bulovas have issues with this, so I don't plan on swimming with it. It's done fine in high humidity though. Overall a very nice piece for a relatively reasonable price. If you're looking for a fashion-forward watch that's pretty enough to suit up with but rugged enough for your day to day grind, look no further. The automatic movement adds another element of cool for me personally (after all, Bond has always favored them), although they're not for everyone. This definitely gets a thumbs up, and Amazon was great as always.

    This was my first non-swiss automatic so I was very hesitant to pull the trigger on this... I'm glad I did, this watch is really, really cool. The watch has some substantial heft to it but it's very comfortable to wear. The band is a nice soft silicone material that matches the theme of the watch perfect. The large diver inspired face is easy to read, and quite frankly sexy. Of course the open heart on the dial is very cool to admire, and the domed mineral crystal is a nice touch. The lume is pretty good and maybe lasts a couple of hours. The 21 jewel Citizen Miyota 9015-82S0 movement hasn't skipped a beat, and keeps very accurate time. All in all I am very happy with my purchase and will be looking at other Bulova watches in the future.

    I absolutely love this watch. I just got it in the mail today and I have to say it's stunning. Very casual but also still a very sure look to it. The only reason this watch is getting 4 stars instead of 5 is due to the strap. The straps is nice but I feel the silicon is very thin not like my other Bulova watches with the rubber strap. Im going to end up replacing it with either a leather strap or a nylon nato. But absolutely a great look and worth the purchase.

    Nice watch but when I received at home it was not working. I called Amazon to complain about it and they asked me to return the product. Then, I tried to buy the same watch. However, the price was 2x what I paid. Very very disappointed.
