A watch you will enjoy looking at everyday,
This review is from: Bulova Men's 98B103 Marine Star Calendar Watch (Watch)
Bulova Marine Star watches are generally pleasing to the eye. However, the 98B103, with its rose tone gold plating and black PVD plating is particularly beautiful. Perfect for everyday wear with jeans and dress wear with a suit. Mine gets noticed every day, and contrast means can be read quickly without reading glasses. My Christmas gift to myself this year.
Overall, this watch looks much more expensive than it is. PLEASE NOTE: This watch does NOT have a sapphire crystal, so it is not meant to be a sport watch. The case and lugs are gently curved for a close natural fit with nearly every wrist. I fell for the textured face and ease in reading the dial. Hold the watch under a lamp for a minute and the hour markers and hands glow brightly for hours. There's a unique perforated calfskin band that is both masculine and comfortable. The chronograph is very accurate, yet the push buttons take a deliberate effort. That's fine by me, but might bug some perfectionists. Premium Japanese movement inside... two-year + battery life...excellent fit and finish. You'll be happy the minute you put it on, as I was.
