This is a very nice watch: the case, dial, and bracelet are of excellent quality.
The "precisionist" movement is both very precise and very cool.
In more than two weeks I have owned it, I cannot detect even a fraction of a second difference from the atomic clock. (I can now believe the claimed precision of better than 10s per year.) (I have another watch with a claimed 10s/year claimed precision, but that one gains one second in two weeks... A Pulsar PSR10 for those interested.)
The movement of the second hand is quite cool, reminding (but more fluid than) a mechanical watch. (Plus there is no "quartz" written on the dial.)
One thing to be aware of: this is a pretty large watch - 44mm case diameter. (Amazon seems confused here.) But it sits nicely on the wrist, due to the watch's curved design.

Have had this watch on my buy list for sometime....very happy with this one! And once again half the price compared to the local stores...Very clean looking watch...sized out perfect with great comfort....the precisionist's sweeping second hand is a pleasure to show off... And the curved crystal is a nice design with great appeal to me...lightning fast delivery with no issues...beautiful timepiece to add to the collection...

Yes, a large watch of impeccable detail and design, it fits well, looks great and is completely comfortable on my small wrist.
For me, timekeeping accuracy is the #1 requirement for any watch, before even thinking about its style and appearance. Although I haven't had it long enough to verify its 10sec./year accuracy claim (which I will check against National Bureau of Standards time signal), it appears this modestly priced watch will far outperform my $1,800 Omega, my treasure for many years! After 10 years of use, I had returned my Seiko Kinetic, my "everyday" watch (handsome titanium case) for routine service. I had come to despise this Seiko, because regardless that it cost much more than this Bulova, it always ran more than 15 seconds per MONTH fast (when new, Seiko replaced the movement, with no real improvement). When Seiko quoted about $80 to service the old watch, I seized the opportunity to apply the funds toward the Bulova purchase, and I'm absolutely thrilled! Now I have an "everyday" watch of strikingly handsome appearance, groundbreaking accuracy, all without breaking the bank. From past Bulova (Accutron) experience, I expect a long, trouble-free life from this timepiece.

I got this watch on Amazon for $129.99; an exceptional deal (I saw the black leather-strap version of this watch at Burlington Coat Factory on sale (40% off) for $179.99). I like this version even more considering it comes with a stainless steel bracelet, which I prefer over leather anyways. The clasp takes a bit of getting used to - the trick is to push the central portion against your wrist and while holding it there with your 3rd finger, use your thumb and index to fold the two bracelet portions together and lock it.

There are three design features that I find particularly appealing about this watch. First, it has a curved surface that contours to the wrist - looks really nice. Second, the face of the watch has a very nice, multi-leveled layout. There is a black face around which are recessed areas into which raised metal digits are mounted. The recessed portions are gray (looks nice against the black face) and the digits have a brushed, stalnless-steel look to them. It makes for a really nice effect. Third, and perhaps my favorite aspect of this watch, is the sweep second hand. It lends a very nice, sophisticated look to the watch very much consistent with the 'Precisionist' label.

This is a really nice watch that has a nice, solid feel to it. If you're searching for a classy men's watch that balances quality with value - this is your choice!

I don't have any negatives yet but will update this review if one should arise. Also, I will share about my authenticity check post receiving my purchasing.
I have a Bulova Marine Star as well, good quality and style.
I was originally concerned about the size being to large but the contoured face/bezel/case helps for a more fitted feel and look. It's a sturdy watch without being overly bulky. Great design that you will feel confident in wearing this watch.
Unique watch, you can really appreciate the detail of small layers within the face and the functionality and attractiveness of the sweeping second hand. Classy, fashionable, sophisticated, modern, stylish, and subtle yet attention grabbing.
Being cautious of purchasing such items online, I read reviews, etc. on the internet and decided to purchase this watch. I received the Bulova Precisionist Claremont 96B129 nice and new in the Bulova watch box, with the watch around Bulova pillow and info/warranty booklet included. I wanted to check if it was an authentic Bulova so I went on the Bulova website and found a number I could call about my watch. I called this service number and they gave me another number to call, where I spoke to someone to check the numbers on the back case of the watch. Since there are a few sets of numbers he asked for the proper numbers to look up and confirmed it matched the correct model and that it is a Bulova.
I'm very satisfied with my purchased, a great Bulova watch!
Hope this helps.

Having a small collection of watches, which are mainly affordable Automatics, except a few chromos. I wanted to get the best of 2 worlds. A Quartz watch with a sweeping second hand, and precise to 10 seconds a year. Having sized the band and wearing it , I have come to love this watch. Comfortable @ 43mm, and not to heavy. I was simply taken aback by the details on the face, raised metal numerals. My original thoughts of how the crystal would look were completely forgotten. this watch will be in the rotation more than the others. Simple Fact...GREAT VALUE.

Got a great deal on Amazon. I love the continuous motion. You don't hear the seconds hand ticking. The links are easy to remove. Look for the arrows on the band to show which direction to push each pin. The watch fits great and goes with all my business clothes. I would highly recommend this watch.

Excellent watch! In my opinion, high quality for a low price. Try one on at your local watch store or jeweler and compare the price.

Specs:
The big sell of the Precisionst is it's accuracy. I've had this watch for few weeks now and it hasn't lost or gained a second! The smooth motion of the seconds hand has not been oversold. You'll catch yourself mesmerized by it for the first few days. I will attempt to upload a video of it if Amazon allows.

Looks:
The bright stainless steel face and bracelet look sexy together. I have never own a clasp like this before. It gives the illusion that the bracelet is in one continuous piece. The curved mineral watch face has also garnered much attention as it appears to curve with the wrist. Being a big guy (6'6", 270lbs) I was worried that this watch would look like a little boys watch on my wrist. I could not have been more wrong. This is a mans watch through and through.

Value:
A time piece of this quality from a reputable brand is a steal at twice this price. There is a reason that Citizen bought this company. No mistake about it, this is a luxury watch!
