The only five-star review I've ever given,
This review is from: Bulova Men's 98B142 Precisionist Black Stainless Steel Watch With Black Rubber Band (Watch)
Was given this watch as a gift, but I had learned about it before when doing research for an article on new watch technology. It is without a doubt the finest watch I've ever owned, better than any Rolex I've owned. Its timekeeping is so accurate that the error is vanishingly small. If it's inaccurate, I can't detect it. Appears to keep virtually perfect time. Twice a year, when the time changes to daylight savings time and back, I reset it for that reason. Throughout the year it seems absolutely perfectly accurate. It's handsome, rugged, easy to read the time, and the crystal seems pretty impervious to scratching. But the most amazing feature is its imperviousness to water. I'm frankly mystified by reviewers who complain about this. Six mornings a week I swim laps in an indoor pool. The watch is submerged for 90 minutes nonstop. No problem. I used to own a Rolex sea dweller, the ruggedest submersible watch they make. The Bulova Precisionist #98B142 outperforms the Rolex. It is superlative to the Rolex in every dimension except, maybe, snob appeal. Strongly recommend this watch.
