Bulova Men's 96A102 Canvas Strap Watch
Bulova Men's 96A102 Canvas Strap Watch

3.0 out of 5 stars Good dress watch, January 12, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is a good dress watch of reasonable quality.

Exterior

The metal bezel and frame feel solid, but the sand-polishing is done on a very superficial level, making it reasonably easy to scratch. In addition, there were minor imperfections to the sand-polishing when the watch came out of the box.

As advertised, the watch glass is not really glass, but plastic. It is durable, but easy to scratch.

The watch strap is extremely comfortable, but does not feel long-lasting. The actual color is lighter than in the photos, but I cannot imagine it being a deal-breaker.

Watch mechanism

The watch tells excellent time. However, there are minor faults here and there.

The "second" hand is not aligned properly with the "second" dial's markers. However, due to the small size of the sub-dial, the problem is not very serious.

The "minute" hand has rather generous free-play. It can advance 1 full minute or retrograde 1 full minute depending on how you fling your wrist (e.g. when you try to catch that chicken chop falling off the grill).

Lastly, the crown turn feels unlubricated, introducing some doubt as to the durability of the mechanism.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent experience, January 12, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The nylon is of high quality, but due to its toughness, may be a little scratchy on delicate skin. The metal bits are strong and sturdy. The length of the strap suits small- to medium-sized wrists. While it will have no problem fitting large-sized wrists, the strap-end may be too short to be folded and double-backed into the nearest metal ring which some wearers like to do. But overall, great experience.
