The Bulova Women's 96M120 Precisionist Leather Strap Watch is a beautiful timepiece with fabulous details, such as the sweeping Precisionist movement. Featuring a mother-of-pearl analog dial, date display and a black calfskin band, this watch is a boyfriend style teeming with feminine grace.
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 Langford Collection. In stainless steel with multiple-layer swirl-pattern white mother-of-pearl and silver dial, silver continuously sweeping second hand, luminous hour and minute hands, calendar, black leather strap and water resistance to 30 meters.
Precisionist TechnologyWith 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.

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.

The only negative, which is not significant enough to affect my rating of the watch, is that 2-day Prime shipping took longer than expected, but only by one day. Amazon customer service did offer me a promotional amount to compensate for the delay. I am only including this information in this review to alert those who may be ordering the watch as a gift that they might want to order it sufficiently in advance to ensure that it arrives in time.
I can vouch for the hardness of the watch's stainless steel case!
The watch, with its smooth sweeping second hand, is great. Initially, the second hand was the big attraction, not the watch's accuracy. But the high accuracy (some 18 times the accuracy of your average quartz watch) is the fundamental character of the watch. That is its personality.
I should make a comment about the mother-of-pearl dial. You can see from the product photo how the surface of the dial is incised in a regular helical design. I personally like it, but it is very 'busy', very prominent under certain lighting conditions. If a watch dial with uniform background design is what enhances your peace of mind, this watch is not for you.
The white mother of pearl on the dial is beautiful. It looks white in the shade, but when placed in the light, it reflects back many different colors (blue, red, purple). The dial is a bit larger than some women's watches, but I think it makes it easier to read. I like the minutes marks on the watch (nice if you want to know the exact time).
This watch is great as a gift or any occasion. The leather strap is genuine leather and is high quality, but a bit small and thin. The strap can be easily changed if you want a larger one or a different color. I highly recommend this watch.
