This durable timepiece offers a black-and-silver-tone stainless steel band that joins to a stainless steel case.

A ring of white stick and Arabic numeral minute markers in the dial works with silver-tone shape hour indicators and a Bulova logo at the 12 o'clock position. Three silver-tone subdials, luminescent hands, and a date window at the four o'clock position complete this athletic-looking Bulova timepiece.

In 1875, a young Czech immigrant named Joseph Bulova set up shop in New York City, and a legendary American watch brand was born. Bulova was trained as a jeweler, and his expertise carried over into his watchmaking career, which began around 1911 with boudoir clocks and pocket watches, and soon evolved to include what was then one of the latest and most fashionable technological innovations: the wristwatch.
Bulova introduced its first line of wristwatches in 1919. The company grew and prospered, and soon early radio and television ads were declaring, "America runs on Bulova time." In the 1950s, continuing its legacy of innovation, Bulova introduced Accutron, the first electronic watch, and the first breakthrough in timekeeping technology in over 300 years. The Accutron timing mechanism was later adapted for use by NASA computers and a Bulova timer was even placed on the moon to control transmissions of data. Bulova timepieces have kept official time aboard Air Force One and have also served as official timepieces for U.S. Olympic teams.
Today, Bulova maintains its tradition of excellence in technology and design, offering a diverse collection of beautiful precision timepieces for every occasion.

Top Customer Reviews
It looks fantastic.
No band scratching issues so far (more than 6 months of use).
It's a Bulova!
I've accidentally hit the glass several times...not even a single scratch.
I totally recommend it!
Pros: Looks great!
It keeps accurate time.
I get a lot of positive comments on the watch.
People think and the watch looks like it's worth much more than what it costs.
Cons: The band does seem to scratch easily.
Now that I have a new one, I see how much the band was worn as my new one is so much less scratched. (Like I said, this is my everyday watch, so I'd expect it to be worn)
Overall, I'm very happy with this watch or I wouldn't have gotten a second one.
Fast forward to December of 2016 where I pulled the adjustment knob out to change the date and the whole knob along with the shaft came completely out! This is definitely not my father's Bulova (yes, he had one). Would not buy again a Bulova watch and would not recommend anyone does.
