Product Description

Bulova, Precisionist Catamount, Men's Watch, Stainless Steel Case, Polyurethane Strap, Japanese Quartz (Battery-Powered), 98B166

BulovaBulova
















The world’s most accurate watch with a continuously sweeping second hand. Most quartz watches are accurate to within 15 seconds/month. Precisionist is accurate to within 10 seconds/year.

From the Precisionist Catamount Collection. In stainless steel with rotating ratchet bezel ring and bezel ratchet lock, black and red anodized aluminum bezel insert, multiple-layer black dial, red continuously sweeping second hand, luminous hour and minute hands, luminous markers, calendar, screw-back case, screw-down crown, patterned black rubber strap and water resistance to 300 meters.

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.

    American made, large, sturdy, water resistant men's watch built for the rigors of diving, and not simply for show (like many others on the market).
    Polished/brushed stainless steel case. Hard mineral crystal, scratch resistant. Case is about 46 mm (53 mm with lugs). Unidirectional steel bezel. Screw-down crown.Tough polyurethane, pin buckle, 24 mm wide strap. Japanese analog quartz battery with Accutron precision (developed by Bulova in 1960).

    PROS :
    Highly accurate Precisionist movement - accurate to within 10 seconds per year
    Highly visible red sweep second hand.
    Scratch resistant steel case and crystal (handy when battered againt rocks during diving).
    Steel bezel, with lock at 10 o'clock and clearly marked for 20 minutes (red) - average time for scuba tank.
    Rubber strap 8.5 " long, to comfortably accomodate dive suit sleeve.
    Water resistant to 30 ATM/300 meters/ 984 Ft.

    CONS:
    Miniscule date window at the 6 position - difficult to clearly see underwater.
    Requires yearly battery replacement - by authorized service able to "repressurize' the watch with every battery change (only if watch is intended to be worn under water).

    As a veteran diver for many years, I have always preferred automatic watches, but for everyday use and on-land activities, this is a terrific watch.

    Big watch but fits well as I have a larger than average wrist.
    What can I say about the Precisionist movement, it is nice to have a sweeping hand and accuracy to ten seconds per year.
    Very easy to read and set.
    The bezel is 60 clicks unidirectional with a lock for further reassurance.
    Can't complain about the lum.
    The finish is top notch, and the buckle is very nice, large and in the style of Panarai.

    I like this watch. it's a little large and heavy, but you get used to it. I don't do any diving, but i've worn it while swimming with no problems. It has a pretty good lume and is easy to read. I use the rotating bezel to track parking meters and breaks at work. I would have preferred a longer lasting battery. I may try a different band in the future.

    I admit I have a problem. I like to own and wear many watches. Ok, there are worse problems, but I have about 1 watch for each day of the week... and the others are feeling forgotten, now that I own this wonderful timepiece.

    First, the design work that went into this series of Bulova is top notch. Not only does this watch keep almost perfect time, that sweep second hand is a thing of beauty, to see it swing smoothly around the dial's face.

    Quality is the message here. Loud and clear message.

    Plus, it's a dive watch. It has a "reason" to be. Diving. So yes, it's kinda (relatively) heavy. Yes, it's large, and the rubber band is designed to be worn with scuba gear, and it's long for that reason...it all goes together perfectly. It is as much a tool, a piece of equiptment, as it is anything else. And that's what makes it so great. It's not flashy for the sake of being flashy. It is just the opposite. For something so large, it's actually modest and understated.

    And looking great! I wear this large-ish watch because it looks great. The locking bezel is a simple, yet so very effective.

    Buy one today, and I bet you will be as excited about this watch as I am.

    This watch is without a doubt awesome. As others have said it is large, but it looks really good. It is not really bulky or extremely heavy, ie a invicta style 48 mm, and it is thin for a 48mm. Finish is perfect, and the sweeping second hand makes it look like a automatic. I have a really small wrist and I like a larger face watch because my eyes are starting to get a little weak, but I don't like a real heavy watch....this Bulova fits the bill perfect. In my eyes Bulova knocked this one out of the park. This is my second Bulova, my other one is a marine star and keeps superb time, + 1 second a month, and this one is suppose to be better,. My grandfather was a horologist, and he always raved about two watch brands Mido and Bulova, I see why now.

    I love the Bulova Precisionist Brand and this watch only serves to solidify my opinion. Not only did I get it for a great price on Amazon but the watch fits like a glove and looks awesome on the wrist. The colors stand out and I have already received numerous comments on the watch. No need to spend thousands on luxury watches; Bulova can outfit you with a handsome watch at a fraction of the price with the same quality of workmanship.

    Just got this watch today. Good looking as the photos attest. Very large and rugged looking, in a good way. I have a Bulova Marine Star which has a bezel that will just about fit inside the crystal of this watch. I usually don't like large watches such as some of the Invictas that just seem gaudy. The size of this watch suits it. I have rather small wrists and have the strap at the second to last hole but the tag end is well secured. No prob. This is a diver's watch and is required to fit outside a wet suit. The one thing that disappoints me is the lack of good hand and hour illumination. It really is nonexistent. However, if there is any light at all the markers seem to reflect it very well. But in real darkness, better have a flashlight.
