Ladies Love Cool Jay...when he wears this watch

Summary: This watch is fantastic. It came in an official Bulova case with an instructions manual (which would be my only qualm about the product because the manual definitely looked used but the watch itself was in mint condition) When setting up the watch there is a tiny plastic hold/clamp on the dial; I used tweezer to remove and it came out without a hitch). Like any watch it has to be sized but that should only cost about $5 dollars.
Summary: I usually only purchase Invicta watches from Amazon. This watch caught my eye however and I thought I'd give Bulova a shot. Big mistake! First off, the watch looks nothing like it does in the picture. You cannot read any of the numbers around the outside of the dial unless it's held into direct light. Second, this watch is very small, unlike the Invictas. And last but not least, the inside is very dark and gray and VERY hard to read.
Summary: Rated water proof to 100m. I scuba dive often no more than 30m. Two months after purchase the chrono stopped working Four months after purchase the crown stem rusted and the crown fell off. I called the repair center and they asked me to send it in and they would "diagnose" the problem and hopefully I hadn't misused the watch. Stylish watch, poorly manufactured, and almost no customer support.
Summary: This watch is simply awesome. I'd like to let a hit for everyone, if possible before buying this watch ask the seller if they can send it to you with the bracelet resized. I'm 1,80m tall, 77kg I had to took out 7 pieces of the bracelet; it's not a problem at all but if you can get it in the right size would be much better.
Summary: The watch is beautiful, being a good buy. The price 'and accessible, but what makes it expensive is the tax paid. The value has doubled with the rate I paid, but still left much cheaper than if you had bought in a store Sincerely, Rodrigo
Summary: Bought this as an gift and the recipient is very happy. Had to make the size of the armband smaller and thank goodness we have the jeweler's tool for this because some links didn't go easily. The only disappointment is that the 24 hour clock only synchronizes with 12 hour clock; chronograph doesn't measure more than 60 minutes.
Summary: I bought this watch for myself because I needed an every day watch that I wouldn't mind getting a little banged up. I like pieces that have a large face and I have a fairly small wrist but I'm still able to wear it with 2 links left so ladies it'll fit! It came on time and was packaged nicely in a Bulova box with a pillow and manual. The chronograph feature works perfectly and I've had it for almost a month now with no problems.
