Too large and small issue with day change
on October 17, 2011
I just received this watch today and I am returning it for two small, but annoying reasons:
1. The watch is a lot bigger than advertised. I looked at the specs and they claim that it is 40mm wide, but it actually is much wider. The best way to judge is if you look at the picture of the watch Amazon has posted alongside a scale. You can see that the width is actually close to 50mm at its widest part. Amazon has other watches for sale that claim to be 40mm and match up correctly with the scale. I assume that the specs are just listed incorrectly for this model.
2. This isn't really a huge deal and probably most people wouldn't care, but I couldn't let it go: The day changes on mine at close to 6 am. It just seems bizarre. I called Bulova and say they say this is normal, but I would rather have a watch that had a day setting that changed closer to midnight. Again, if this doesn't bother you, by all means purchase this watch.
Besides these two items, the watch is beautiful as most Bulovas are. Just be warned about the size!
