Precisionist Technology

With Precisionist, Bulova has added a third prong to a standard two prong quartz crystal creating a torsional resonator. This innovation results in eight times the vibration frequency of a traditional quartz watch resulting in the most accurate watch with a continuously sweeping second hand. The aesthetic movement of the second hand becomes the symbol to the consumer of Bulova Precisionist and signals a watch with accuracy so exceptional, you can see it. The technology is accurate to 10 seconds per year as compared to most other quartz watches, which are accurate to fifteen seconds per month.

About Bulova

In 1875, Joseph Bulova, a 23-year-old immigrant from Bohemia, set up shop in New York City and a legendary American watch brand was born. Since that time, Bulova has stood proudly in the vanguard of timekeeping innovation, committed to the legacy of creativity and excellence established by its founder.

A pioneering force in the industry, Bulova transformed how watches were worn and how time was perceived, registering over 50 patents as he and his company built a record of creativity including the first full lines of men’s and ladies’ wristwatches (1919 and 1924). To ensure the utmost in precision, in 1920, Bulova even established its own observatory – located atop its New York skyscraper. With the same spirit of innovation, following World War II, determined “to serve those who served us,” Bulova established The Bulova School of Watchmaking, using new and unique methods to train disabled veterans for positions in the watch and jewelry industry. Then, in 1960, Bulova changed timekeeping forever with the revolutionary Accutron, the world’s first fully electronic watch. An integral component of U.S. space technology, Accutron timing was used on 46 NASA missions, including Apollo XI, the first lunar landing (1969).

Today, this dedication to creativity continues, with Bulova the only brand to offer three distinct timekeeping technologies – quartz, mechanical and Precisionist. One of the world’s most recognized brands, Bulova continues to maintain its position at the forefront of the timekeeping industry, upholding an extraordinary heritage of achievement in design, style and technology as it expands to meet the needs of a diverse global audience.

    This watch looks so much better in person.
    CJ
    The watch face glass is curved which (i think) gives it a really classy look.

    Very impressive looking watch if this is your style.

    Comparable with the $3000 Seiko which brags about continous second hand. Simple design with a elegant undertone that will makes me happy to wear. I enjoy seeing the continous seond hand in a quartz. Understand I like my Omega Seamaster GMT better but there is a place for this watch in my collection and I enjoy wearing it. Note the size is large but does not appear to be overwhelming on my wrist (average size wrist). Great buy for the price. I think it is worth more and most likely will go up in price.

    After reading some reviews about this watch, I decided to get it given its very low price point. Given the price, this watch is absolutely perfect. The second hand moves in a fluid motion around the dial and it has a certain weight/heft to it that makes it feel like a more expensive watch. A month later, the watch is still accurate to atomic clock time. This particular model's face is very large to me. The specs say 23.5mm but this cannot be correct. My thought is that it is a 43mm or possibly even a 46mm face--either way it's very large. Some have criticized the curved crystal but I think it's very beautiful and gives the watch a retro feel

    I'm taking one star off for the following things:

    1) The crown is not screw-down, which would have been nice for extra water resistance.
    2) The band looks ok from a distance but it is a really lame alligator print, not convincing at all. I will change it as soon as I get a chance.

    As mentioned, this is a great value in a very accurate watch for a very reasonable price. I'm looking forward to picking up another Precisionist in the future. Great job, Bulova.

    It was a bit of an impulse buy, but the price was so good at the time ($135) I couldn't resist.
    What a great buy though, this is a fascinating watch which memerises you whilst you look at the second hand sweep its way around the face. I am happy to just look at this smooth flowing motion - better than TV.
    Also love the curved crystal glass cover that provides a futuristic look. Very clever.
    As for time keeping, well, it cannot be faulted. I haven't run any accuracy tests, but after 6 weeks, it hasn't missed a beat.
    Highly commended.

    I've had the watch for a few weeks now and I really dig it. I don't have a very thick wrist and I was worried that it would be to big and heavy, but that is not the case at all. I got the black one for $50 more dollars and it really looks great. I think it looks goodin casual or dress situations, and the genuine leather band is nice too. I really like the sweeping seconds hand. The only reason I did not give it 5 stars is because the hands and numbers are not very luminous at night. A little light button would make it perfect.

    It's a nice watch.
    I really like the sweeping second hand, but I guess it gets kind of old and not so nifty after a while.
    Its comfy to wear and you don't really notice it which is great.

    The only problem I had with it is that its a rather large watch. Please double check the size of the watch before you buy it because I can't wear it with any of my fitted dress shirts. It is too large to freely pass the cuff of my shirt making it hard to actually use it as a watch.

    This watch does keep superb time, and its nearly continuous sweep second hand movement is reminiscent of the original tuning-fork Accutron. Whereas the old Accutron frequency could be tuned by placing the watch in various positions overnight to slow or speed its rate, the torsional mode of the new 'hyper' crystal in the Precisionist is quite immune to most motions and positions that the watch could encounter. I really like wearing it. After three weeks it is tracking at about 8 to 12 seconds fast per year. Fastening the strap is a little bothersome due to the proximity of the loop to the buckle and the thickness of the leather, but the quality of the strap is excellent and well worth the bother. A keeper.

    Since I was in high school I like Bulova watches the way it designs for its look. But I never had chance to own one until now 40+
    years later, one day out of blue moon I felt like to buy a new watch. So got on Amazon did a lot of search and compare. Bulova
    Precisionist movement sold me.
    Excellent watch, the second hand moves smoothly, fun to watch, happy to have one. Bought last one on sale at good price.

    I got myself a new watch, the Bulova Precisionist Claremont. At about 170 USD from Amazon.com its a bargain. The continuously sweeping second hand is impressive, and it looks fantastic. Some say it is big, but the curved design makes it just right.

    The only detail I'm not entirely sure about is the faux croc strap. I might get a replacement.

    This item adds nicely to my mighty watch collection: A vintage Longines gold dress watch and a Timex DataLink 150 (vintage too, I guess. And certified by NASA for space travel).

    Some pictures of the watch:
