    Bulova

    From the Precisionist Collection. Featuring Bulova’s proprietary Precisionist quartz accuracy, in stainless steel with silver and black ion-plated finish, curved crystal, multiple-layer black carbon fiber, grey and silver dial, red continuously sweeping second hand, luminous hands and markers, curved calendar window, 24-hour track, screw-back case, screw-down crown, double-press fold-over clasp with safety lock, and water resistance to 300 meters.

    Precisionist Technology

    At the heart of the watch is the Bulova Precisionist-class torsional resonator movement, custom-engineered to provide accuracy to within seconds a year using a three-prong quartz crystal that creates a vibration frequency of 262.144 kHz, the highest of any watch in the world and far greater than that of a standard quartz crystal. In laboratory testing, the Precisionist-class movement has been shown to be three times more accurate than standard quartz. This proprietary manufactured movement, including the signature floating second hand, also offers a resistance to gravitational error that makes it superior in performance to any mechanical watch on the market.

  • About Bulova

    In 1875, Joseph Bulova, a 23-year-old immigrant, set up shop in New York City and a legendary American watch brand was born. Since then, Bulova has stood proudly in the vanguard of timekeeping innovation, committed to the legacy of creativity and excellence established by its founder.

    A pioneering force in the industry, Bulova transformed how watches were worn and how time was perceived, registering over 50 patents as he and his company built a record of creativity including the first full lines of men’s (1919) and ladies’ (1924) wristwatches, the first clock/radio (1928) and the first electric clock (1931). To ensure the utmost in precision, in 1920, Bulova even established its own observatory – located atop its New York skyscraper. With that same spirit of innovation, following World War II, determined “to serve those who served us,” Bulova established The Bulova School of Watchmaking, using new and unique methods to train disabled veterans for positions in the watch and jewelry industry. Then, in 1960, Bulova changed timekeeping forever with the revolutionary Accutron, the world’s first fully electronic watch. An integral component of U.S. space technology, Accutron timing was used on 46 NASA missions, including Apollo XI, the first lunar landing (1969).

    Today, as one of the world’s most recognized brands, Bulova has expanded across the globe, with four separate watch brands, Bulova, Bulova AccuSwiss, Bulova Accutron II and Caravelle New York, as well as the award-winning Bulova Clocks.

    The signature Bulova brand provides an extensive selection of watches for every occasion, crafted of the finest materials, including 315L surgical grade stainless steel, diamonds, mother-of-pearl, carbon fiber, top-quality leather and Bulova’s proprietary Duramic™ nylon/ceramic composite, and powered by Precisionist-class quartz, automatic and quartz movements. An industry leader in diamond watch styling, with the new Diamond Gallery offering exquisite designs in stainless steel with sapphire crystals, Bulova is also known for Precisionist, featuring Bulova’s proprietary Precisionist-class quartz torsional resonator movement for accuracy to within seconds per year, the Marine Star collection, combining high-performance sports timekeeping with superior durability and water resistance to a minimum of 100 meters, and a comprehensive selection of classic styles, each with a three-year limited warranty.

    This is by far the nicest and classiest watch I have purchased. The yellow sweeping second hand did it for me! I was looking for a larger, heavier bulkier watch and I found it! Very classy and sporty ! But warning,,,this is not a watch if you are of a smaller build or do not have somewhat
    large forearms. I am 5'10" 220 lbs weight lifter so I am on the stalky side. If you are of a smaller build I do not think that this watch is for you..You may be walking crooked from the weight of the watch! But I have no regrets...best watch I have ever purchased and believe me I own a lot
    of watches!

    The good:
    - it looks great on the picture on Amazon website
    - i paid 190$ for on black friday sale
    - i got it in 2 business days (not really a pro with prime)

    The bad (you get what you pay for):
    - the watch looks different than pictured in Amazon product description (refer to the picture attached)
    - arrived not working
    - really poor craftsmanship: bulova logo on the side is etched very poorly, on the outside of the crown you can see black marks at 3:30 and than at 11:00 o'clock (refer to the picture)
    - arrived without protective foil on the glass surface and with badly scratched face composite
    - the protective foil on the clasp is almost impossible to remove sticky mess

    Owning several bulova watches I am very dissapointed in the quality of this one. I was excited for my first Precisionist, but aside from really bad flaws, I can't even comment on the movement since the watch arrived dead. Probably just a battery, yet unacceptable for a brand new watch to arrive with a dead battery.

    This one is going back to amazon.

    I bought this watch for my husband (the pickiest gift-receiver on the planet) for Fathers Day and he absolutely loves it! Another reviewer said, "It's almost as if transformers made a watch." and that's definitely true. It's very heavy, but that adds to the manliness of it. And if he can't get to the gym, he can do bicep curls with it! It's a simply gorgeous watch.

    Like the other reviews, the size of this watch is not for the faint of wrist, but I love large watches. This watch gets looks, the angles on the strap have some polished angles and you cannot help but notice the reflection it puts off. The finish is so bright and pristine it truly shines. Great color combination that goes with everything. It is not a daily wearer for me, but perfect for the night out or when you want to feel confident from the obviously cool watch you are sporting.

    Received this watch as a Valentine's Day gift and couldn't be happier with it. I set it perfectly with the U.S. atomic clock the day I got it and a week later it is still exactly on point. It is (by far) the most precise and best looking timepiece I have ever owned. We looked at watches at a couple of retail stores and this model was at both for $540-$599. To my surprise we came home to find it on Amazon for under $400 and jumped on it. My only complaint (if I absolutely HAD to find a fault) would be that the 4 screws at the corners of the watch face are a bit squared instead of rounded, and therefore have caught occasionally on clothing and have a tendency to scratch car leather. However, this is a very minor nuisance and nothing that would keep me from buying this good looking watch again.

    This purchase now brings my Bulova watch count up to eight, and it has quickly become my favorite of them all. The watch is a very striking piece, one that is sure to get several second looks and compliments. As mentioned in previous reviews, this is a big, heavy watch and may take some getting used to if you have never worn one before. The sweeping second hand is very cool, and this watch can be worn for both casual and formal attire. The looks and quality are what you would expect from Bulova, and I am very satisfied with it. If you are a collector, or just looking for a good quality timepiece, the 96B131 is an excellent choice.

    I love this watch. It is a larger than average watch (which I am a fan of), the bracelet is extremely high quality, it has a screw in crown, and it has lume (not the best, but it works). It is classy enough I feel I can wear it with a suit, and it is casual enough I can wear it everyday. The movement is incredible, the sweeping motion is every bit as good as my omega planet ocean auto. I continually compare it to the atomic clock, and so far it has not disappointed. I highly recommend this watch.
