The men's version of this watch is 40mm case diameter, the women's 36. I thought 36 was plenty large enough, so I got the women's. The only thing I wanted to change was the band width; 16mm seemed a little narrow. So I filed back the spring bar pin lugs to accept an 18mm band (photo).

I can vouch for the hardness of the watch's stainless steel case!

The watch, with its smooth sweeping second hand, is great. Initially, the second hand was the big attraction, not the watch's accuracy. But the high accuracy (some 18 times the accuracy of your average quartz watch) is the fundamental character of the watch. That is its personality.

I should make a comment about the mother-of-pearl dial. You can see from the product photo how the surface of the dial is incised in a regular helical design. I personally like it, but it is very 'busy', very prominent under certain lighting conditions. If a watch dial with uniform background design is what enhances your peace of mind, this watch is not for you.

I do not believe you will find a better price for this watch anywhere else. This watch is perfect for wearing with casual or professional attire. The strap is easy to adjust,comfortable and made from very good quality leather with excellent stitching. The photos here do not do justice to the lovely mother-of-pearl face. The hands and markers are large enough to see easily, but the watch is not overly large even for a person with small wrists. The sweeping, silent second hand is amazing. Following the directions in the manual it was quite easy to set the date and the time on the watch. I am very pleased with this purchase and rate the item as 5 stars.

The only negative, which is not significant enough to affect my rating of the watch, is that 2-day Prime shipping took longer than expected, but only by one day. Amazon customer service did offer me a promotional amount to compensate for the delay. I am only including this information in this review to alert those who may be ordering the watch as a gift that they might want to order it sufficiently in advance to ensure that it arrives in time.

This watch is much more attractive than the photo reflects. The background of the watch face has beautiful detail. The band is very comfortable, and the date is large enough for even me to read. The original tag on the item was $299, so I'm super excited about paying just over a hundred for it. Very nice!

I expected high quality and it delivered!
It was a gift to mum and she loves it for its high detail and workmanship.
And best of all, it doesn't cost me a bomb

I bought this watch for my Mom. It's very well made, and the polished hour markings reflect the light nicely in the sun. The Bulova Precisionist watches are said to be accurate to within 10 seconds a year, if accuracy is your thing. The sweeping seconds hand is neat to watch, and is usually only found in much more expensive mechanical watches. This quartz watch will be much more accurate than an automatic or mechanical watch, plus you won't have to wind it daily or wear it every day to keep the spring wound. This watch will just keep running (Great if you have several watches). The battery is supposed to last at least a year, but I've heard some people have gone much longer than a year on their batteries. Just swap out for a new battery if it dies at a local jeweler. The watch has a quick set date when you pull out the crown once, and you set the time when you pull out the crown to the second click. The seconds hand stops when setting the time, so you can set it exactly to the right time. The back case of the watch has a date code B2 which means it was built in 2012. I read the later models (B1 -2011 and B2 -2012 are a bit more accurate than the B0 2010 models)

The white mother of pearl on the dial is beautiful. It looks white in the shade, but when placed in the light, it reflects back many different colors (blue, red, purple). The dial is a bit larger than some women's watches, but I think it makes it easier to read. I like the minutes marks on the watch (nice if you want to know the exact time).

This watch is great as a gift or any occasion. The leather strap is genuine leather and is high quality, but a bit small and thin. The strap can be easily changed if you want a larger one or a different color. I highly recommend this watch.

I was looking for a watch that was a little "nicer" than those that I usually wore in the past, and the Bulova 96M120 seemed like a great choice. The mother-of-pearl dial looked beautiful, and the continuously sweeping second hand and precision time keeping were definite draws. The watch was exactly as described. It looks great and I enjoy wearing it. By the way, the photos and video of the watch on amazon really don't do the mother-of-pearl dial justice. I actually went to the Bulova website to get a much better look at the swirl-pattern on the dial. If you're interested in the watch, I suggest you do the same.

This is the 1st watch that I've purchased for myself. Mother of pearl is so beautiful. At 1st, I was afraid the face might be too small but it's actually just right (maybe a little on the big size since my other favorite watch is 26mm). The sweeping hand is smooth and mesmerizing lol. I really like how the face shows the date. The entire design is spot on. You can't find this watch at this price anywhere else. Keeps time perfectly. I also really like how the crown doesn't hurt me because of its design. Some watches' dials are just there sticking out like a sore thumb and it ends up digging into my flesh but this Bulova watch doesn't do that; it's so comfortable. The leather strap is so soft yet sturdy. Sorry for the bad photos lol; the watch is amazing in person

I ordered this watch without ever having seen it in real life. It looks even better in person. This is a classy, easy to read watch and it keeps excellent time. The package arrived quickly and in very good condition. I'm thrilled with this purchase and highly recommend both the watch and the seller.

This watch is very comfortable and just the right size, not too big or too small. It looks great with casual clothes but is nice enough you could wear it with a dress or nice outfit. The band is very comfortable as well.

This pleased her immensely, a handsome display and really spectacular engineering. She hated wondering whether her watch were right, and she didn't want the size of most atomics. This was just right.
