A great watch with a great price
on February 3, 2008
I ordered the Bulova 96E04 men's watch through Kenmar. The watch is beautiful and seems to grow more beautiful by the day. My fiancee loves it and I receive many compliments at work. I previewed this watch at a local Macy's before ordering from Kenmar through Amazon (and saving hundreds of dollars in the process). From the pictures, the diamonds that mark the hours appear to be of good size, but if you do not see one of these in a store first you should know that the diamonds are actually very small but they are set on top of very shiny steel so that they overall effect of each hour marker is striking and noticebale in a very positive way. This watch sparkles, but I think less because of the diamonds and more because of the polished steel. Nonetheless, it is a gorgeous watch and I hope to wear it for a long time.
If you choose to order through Kenmar, a word of warning: my watch arrived with a few small scuff marks on the links near the clasp - they are small and barely noticeable (I will probably create my own more significant scuffs in that area in a few weeks time anyway), and the rest of the watch was in great shape and seems to be authentic, as far as I can tell without opening the watch (including the original plastic covering on the face and the back), but my local jeweler said it was clear that the watch had been on display and/or demo'd for some considerable time. Given the great price and the fact that everything noticeable about the watch was perfect, I decided to keep it without complaint.
