Beautiful, durable, and affordable,
This review is from: Bulova Women's 96R000 Diamond Accented Chronograph Watch (Watch)
I've been a Bulova lover for awhile now, ever since buying the Bulova Men's 98C62 Marine Star Watch as an inexpensive alternative to the Omega Men's 2220.80.00 Seamaster 300M "James Bond" Automatic Chronometer Watch Daniel Craig wore in his first James Bond movie. While that watch is great, with its over-sized face, it's a sporty watch and for women, not quite suitable for dressier ensembles. As a result I began to look for a less casual watch, and once again found a Bulova to suit my sensibilities.
In all other types of jewelry, I tend toward the delicate, but for some reason prefer a more substantial watch, and this one does so without being clunky. Unlike my other watch, it's actually a women's watch, and its nifty chronographic dials make it sporty, but the face itself is quite delicate, with tiny diamonds framing it that do not in any way scream "bling." While I can't wear this one in the tub or while swimming, it illuminates well enough at night that I can see it in the dark, which is important to me.
None of that would matter, though, if it didn't also keep perfect time. Which it does. This is ideal for those of you looking for a watch you can dress up or down, all without spending a fortune.
