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.

    Bought this for myself as a Xmas gift! Exactly what I was looking for as far as style, I am not a watch snob or have a huge collection. It looks great on my wrist and not too big at all, it's just right. My other daily wearer was a Citizen skyhawk. I love the sweeping second hand on this one. Only thing I could see me maybe not liking down the road is the rubber strap if it doesn't hold up. I have had others that end up breaking, but they can be replaced. But it fits fine now and getting lots of compliments on it so far. The crown (to set the time) is a screw down type which I have never had on a watch before. You unscrew to pull out and use, then you can screw it down by hand to keep it from accidentally being pulled out and keep a tight seal. Very clean looking design, I love it.

    Have had this watch for a couple weeks now and I really like it. This will be my 3rd Bulova for me, the first being my grandfathers from the 1940's and it's still going great. The all black on this one is very smart looking. I almost sprung for the gold face with the steel bracelet because I wasn't sure about the rubber one; however, I really dig it. The rubber really holds the watch in place on your wrist, which is nice for something this bold. This watch is super solid and the sweeping second hand is truly cool and really makes the watch. A guy on here said his watch was fogging up, but I can pretty much guarantee you that he didn't have the crown screwed down. You have to push in the crown and turn it and it recesses back into the watch; it's not waterproof until you do that. I made the same mistake when I first got it. I've already gotten two compliments on the watch; never once with my Movado that was 3 times the price. I have a small wrist and use the very last notch on the band and it still fits my wrist well. My one and only small gripe is that the crown should be placed a couple millimeters higher as to not touch the back of my wrist so much. But I really like this watch.

    Follow-up: Now that it's turning winter, I have been going outside and the watch does indeed fog up some. It's minor, but annoying to me, as I am a perfectionist; thus, the "precisionist" is not quite for me...pun intended. I'm returning it and getting a Citizen eco drive. They have one in all black that keeps the time for the next 100 years or something like that.

    I've been looking for a solid Black watch that was still sporty for a long time.
    Bulova pulled off a great look with the Precisionist. I've a smaller wrist and most
    watches tend to look like wall clocks on my wrist, the Bulova sits quite well and features
    a curved glass, breaking the large size appearance.

    The reason I've not given this watch a 5 star review is as follows;
    Three times I've had the watch fog up, only to take hours before the glass was clear.
    Keep in mind, i'm not swimming in this watch (rated to 300 Meters). I'm taking it off prior to
    a shower. I'm not sure if I've received a bad watch or if it's a constant.

    Still for the money, it's a great watch at a great price. I still wear this watch often, and will likely continue to.

    Was given this watch as a gift, but I had learned about it before when doing research for an article on new watch technology. It is without a doubt the finest watch I've ever owned, better than any Rolex I've owned. Its timekeeping is so accurate that the error is vanishingly small. If it's inaccurate, I can't detect it. Appears to keep virtually perfect time. Twice a year, when the time changes to daylight savings time and back, I reset it for that reason. Throughout the year it seems absolutely perfectly accurate. It's handsome, rugged, easy to read the time, and the crystal seems pretty impervious to scratching. But the most amazing feature is its imperviousness to water. I'm frankly mystified by reviewers who complain about this. Six mornings a week I swim laps in an indoor pool. The watch is submerged for 90 minutes nonstop. No problem. I used to own a Rolex sea dweller, the ruggedest submersible watch they make. The Bulova Precisionist #98B142 outperforms the Rolex. It is superlative to the Rolex in every dimension except, maybe, snob appeal. Strongly recommend this watch.

    Very nice my husband loved it. We did get water in it and it fogged up. We took it to a jeweler who loved it as well. He dried it up for $10 and said we have the knob on the side out too far and that's how water got in. Good to know!
