Product Description


From the Precisionist Collection. Featuring Bulova’s proprietary Precisionist accuracy, this advanced chronograph offers 1/1,000-second precision over a twelve-hour time frame, with accuracy to within seconds a year. In stainless steel with curved crystal, multiple-layer black carbon fiber, blue, silver and black dial, chronograph measurement of hours, minutes, seconds, 1/10-seconds, 1/100-seconds and 1/1,000-seconds, yellow continuously sweeping second hand, luminous hour and minute hands, luminous markers, tachymeter, calendar, screw-back case, screw-down crown, double-press fold-over clasp with safety lock, and water resistance to 300 meters.

Providing an extraordinary level of timing accuracy, the Bulova Precisionist Chronograph is the only chronograph to combine stopwatch timing to 1/1,000-second with Bulova’s exclusive Precisionist-class torsional resonator movement, proven in laboratory testing to be one of the world’s most accurate.

Easy and logical to read, each style features four subdials to display the cumulative time at a single glance, with individual measurements on the combined 1/10- and 1/100-second counter, as well as the hour and minute dials, dual-duty floating second hand, and a distinctive 1/1,000-second track with retrograde indicator.

Precisionist Technology

At the heart of the watch is the Bulova Precisionist-class torsional resonator movement, custom-engineered to provide accuracy to within seconds a year using a three-prong quartz crystal that creates a vibration frequency of 262.144 kHz, the highest of any watch in the world and far greater than that of a standard quartz crystal. In laboratory testing, the Precisionist-class movement has been shown to be three times more accurate than standard quartz. This proprietary manufactured movement, including the signature floating second hand, also offers a resistance to gravitational error that makes it superior in performance to any mechanical watch on the market.

  • About Bulova

    In 1875, Joseph Bulova, a 23-year-old immigrant, set up shop in New York City and a legendary American watch brand was born. Since then, 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 (1919) and ladies’ (1924) wristwatches, the first clock/radio (1928) and the first electric clock (1931). To ensure the utmost in precision, in 1920, Bulova even established its own observatory – located atop its New York skyscraper. With that 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, as one of the world’s most recognized brands, Bulova has expanded across the globe, with four separate watch brands, Bulova, Bulova AccuSwiss, Bulova Accutron II and Caravelle New York, as well as the award-winning Bulova Clocks.

    The signature Bulova brand provides an extensive selection of watches for every occasion, crafted of the finest materials, including 315L surgical grade stainless steel, diamonds, mother-of-pearl, carbon fiber, top-quality leather and Bulova’s proprietary Duramic nylon/ceramic composite, and powered by Precisionist-class quartz, automatic and quartz movements. An industry leader in diamond watch styling, with the new Diamond Gallery offering exquisite designs in stainless steel with sapphire crystals, Bulova is also known for Precisionist, featuring Bulova’s proprietary Precisionist-class quartz torsional resonator movement for accuracy to within seconds per year, the Marine Star collection, combining high-performance sports timekeeping with superior durability and water resistance to a minimum of 100 meters, and a comprehensive selection of classic styles, each with a three-year limited warranty.

    This watch is a BEAST! I like big watches and this is dude is big and heavy. It is so much more impressive in person. The perpetual second hand is a beautiful thing to watch in motion. The crono function is just as sweet. By far my favorite watch to wear right now. I really like the shiny and brushed 2 tone of it.
    UPDATE
    I have been wearing this watch everyday I'm home and feel funny when I wear any of my other watches. I have 5 other watches I try to rotate but they are collecting dust after this purchase. It has a solid well built feel that I am now so use to its hard to do without it. Keeps perfect time and is extremely easy to read. I just noticed a blue ring inside the dial in the sunlight that really complements the dial. The detail on the dial must be admired in the sunlight to get the full effect. This is just a beautiful watch that I am very happy to wear. The only thing that I have an issue with is the diver extension part of the band pops open every time I try to put on the watch but a simple adjustment to the retaining clip will surely take care of this but I have not had the time to do it and its really such a small issue that I forget to fix it. I have a large wrist and still had to have 1 link removed for a perfect fit. So far I'm very happy with this purchase.

    I own watches ranging from Citizen to Tag Heuer and I have to say this is my favorite watch out of my collection. The watch is pretty heavy weighing in at 10 ounces with 2 links removed on the band along with having bulk to it on top of your wrist (both width and height). The sweeping second hand is nice and so is the chronograph feature with 1/1000th of a second accuracy. This watch looks even better and person and I can guarantee you will get plenty of compliments when wearing it.

    This is a wonderful piece. It stands out by the way it has been made and the details. Be aware that it is bigger and weighs more than what you might be used to, however, it is worth every penny. Enjoy!!

    This isnt a watch, ITS A MACHINE! Its Mission Impossible, Top Gun, Jason Bourne, James Bond & Super Soldier all rolled into one. This watch fits the scene if you are in combat fatigues kicking down the door with your AR15, jumping out of helicopters during search and rescue missions or just relaxing on the sailboat. Bulova really pulled it off balancing a tactical & classy look all at once which sometimes can be hard to do. Its a larger watch but it dosent look BIG if that makes sense. I have a 7 1/4" inch wrist which I consider to be on the smaller side, and it still looks and fits nice after I had to remove four links. It also has a 3 hole pin adjustment feature in the clasp to get a custom fit, which you really dont see in other high end watch bands. It has 'mineral' glass over the face which is just as hard as office windows which is good against shattering if dropped & aids against being scratched. The sweep second hand is a neat feature that can be turned on or off. Its truly a man's kick butt and take names kinda watch. Not some ballerina dance recital. Why every guy doesnt go out and buy this watch today is beyond me. Put this on, see how many pushups you can do and take the world by storm.

    This piece is amazing. The sweeping second hand is very awesome. The blue accents and carbon fiber background is a perfect blend. I have literally had it on my wrist for two days and received 4 compliments from complete strangers. You will not be disappointed. Don't get me wrong, it is large, but I have a small wrist and removing three links makes it snug and by far my favorite time piece. It goes great with casual wear or formal wear. Don't pay $799 for this watch in jewelry stores. It is worth every penny, but I found mine eBay for $400.

    totally loved it the shipping and delivered was very fast, it looks super amazing and it comes with an additional little gift: a money clip. Just one thing, this was a gift and the person who was the gift for, saw the price although I asked you for removed it. It wasn't a problem but... you know is awkward! anyway it's almost perfect :)

    After months of agonizing over what new watch to purchase, I chose the Precisionist 96B175, and am utterly delighted with the decision. Aside from it's obvious technical attributes, this watch screams "quality" and generates more compliments and questions than my Omega Seamaster ever did. I'm not sure which of the watch's features elicit such keen interest, be it the beautiful blended faceting of the watch and bracelet, or the curved case and crystal, but people know that they are in the presence of something special when they lay eyes on it. They can sense that it's not just another biggish bling watch, and they ask.

    If I had to find something negative to report, it would be that it takes my 60 year old eyes a couple of seconds to decipher what time it is against the backdrop of all of the chrono dials and brushed banding around the perimeter of the bezel, but I wanted the 1/1000 metal bracelet chrono model, and accepted this very slight disadvantage. Contributing to the issue is the fact that Bulova skeletonized the hands to facilitate reading the chrono dials regardless of the main hand positions, and I think they succeeded masterfully (like everything else about this watch). I adapted quickly to this characteristic, a slight tilt of the watch makes the mirror finish hands stand out prominently.

    Five stars baby. You will not be disappointed unless the size just doesn't appeal to you.
