Sweep second hand is perfect,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Bulova Men's 98B166 CATAMOUNT Strap Watch (Watch)
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.
