    The world’s most accurate watch with a continuously sweeping second hand. Most quartz watches are accurate to within 15 seconds/month. Precisionist is accurate to within 10 seconds/year.

    From the Precisionist Champlain Collection. In stainless steel with black ion-plated finish and black carbon fiber accents, rotating bezel, multiple-layer black carbon fiber and black dial with screw-head detailing, blue continuously sweeping second hand, luminous hour and minute hands, luminous markers, calendar, 24-hour track, screw-back case, screw-down crown, secure double-pusher fold-over buckle with safety clasp, and water resistance to 300 meters.

    Precisionist Technology

    With Precisionist, Bulova has added a third prong to a standard two prong quartz crystal creating a torsional resonator. This innovation results in eight times the vibration frequency of a traditional quartz watch resulting in the most accurate watch with a continuously sweeping second hand. The aesthetic movement of the second hand becomes the symbol to the consumer of Bulova Precisionist and signals a watch with accuracy so exceptional, you can see it. The technology is accurate to 10 seconds per year as compared to most other quartz watches, which are accurate to fifteen seconds per month.

    About Bulova

    In 1875, Joseph Bulova, a 23-year-old immigrant from Bohemia, set up shop in New York City and a legendary American watch brand was born. Since that time, 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 and ladies’ wristwatches (1919 and 1924). To ensure the utmost in precision, in 1920, Bulova even established its own observatory – located atop its New York skyscraper. With the 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, this dedication to creativity continues, with Bulova the only brand to offer three distinct timekeeping technologies – quartz, mechanical and Precisionist. One of the world’s most recognized brands, Bulova continues to maintain its position at the forefront of the timekeeping industry, upholding an extraordinary heritage of achievement in design, style and technology as it expands to meet the needs of a diverse global audience.

    This watch was perfect for me. I wear a black tungsten wedding band with a Celtic inlay and I was looking for a black precision watch with character but not at the expense of quality. This watch delivers both. Bulova is a name that I can trust and their precision line is one of the best in the price range. I removed 2 links in the band to create a perfect fit. Its the right size and weight. I couldn't be more happy.

    I wanted a metal black watch for some time, and this one fit the need perfectly! The carbon fiber inserts and face dial are absolutely stunning! The watch keeps perfect time, and has become my daily watch. I get compliments everywhere I go. I am a watch buff and this one is right up there in my collection. For the price, you cannot beat it.

    picked up this watch at a sweet price... the pictures do not do it justice at all. it is beautiful. delivery was lightning fast and the watch is absolutely perfect. . I couldn't be happier.

    quick edit: after a few days, I have learned that, while I still love the watch, you might want to think about a different model if you like your watch on the left wrist. the adjustment knob did a number on the back of my hand because it sticks out a bit and is quite abrasive.

    edit 2: having read the earlier reviews, I just learned what a screw down crown is and feel like a moron. . the watch is perfect.

    There is no messing around with this beast. It is a large watch. In size and especially weight, it makes my Casio G-Shock look like a toy. I'm pretty sure I'm getting a workout wearing it. However, big watches are IN (or so my sister says) and this is a fantastic looking example of a big watch. The smooth-moving second hand is pretty cool but, in general, this thing just looks very classy. Also, even though it is a big guy, it really isn't TOO large. I have small wrists and it doesn't look ridiculous on me (as confirmed by my fiance).

    Bulova is touting the accuracy of this Precisionist line and, so far, they seem to be spot on. The watch came set to the correct time and, comparing it to my atomic watch and my Blackberry time, it's within a second or two.

    I have just two negatives. I like to wear my watches tight. Unfortunately, the crown on this one digs a bit into my skin. Maybe I have it too tight but I haven't had this issue with other watches. Also, while the watch's illumination is fairly bright soon after introducing it to darkness, it appears to quickly fade. When I wake up in the morning and try to see the time, the glow is gone. Who knows, after a string of watches with artificial lights in them, maybe I have my expectations set too high.

    Besides those two small issues, I'd recommend this piece. If you're looking for a classy, accurate, and super-size watch, this is a great option.

    I have to say I might be a little biased. I saw this watch in a jewelry store in late 2011 and immediately fell in love. I've lusted after it since then, however the retail price had kept me from purchasing it. Once I found it recently on amazon I just knew at this price I had to have it. It is everything you would come to expect from Bulova, and an absolutely stunning time piece. Every watch I currently own is made by Bulova if that says anything.

    I have a good number of watches, ever since I ordered this months ago now, it's been my favorite to use for ALL occasions. I literally don't use anything else I own anymore, pictures online do it no justice.
