for the priced paid, watch is not all that is put up to be
7 March 2011
Summary: the small chronometer is stuck and it doesn't work properly. Is like it was never set at zero to begin with. Other than that is a good looking watch...it just doesn't keep its beautiful looks for long. Scratches very easy.
Summary: This watch is very sharp and looks great. My only complaint was that Mr Watch failed to ship the watch when they stated through Amazon. Amazon notified me that they hadn't received confirmation of shipment. So I emailed Mr Watch's customer service and asked when I'd expect it to ship, and reminded them that they had agreed to ship the week prior. They shipped it that day, and it came fairly quickly, but I didn't like the fact that they needed reminder of the order.
Summary: I am a newer watch collector. I have a bunch of invicta watches and this watch is way nicer by comparison. The invictas look cheap. I was afraid of the black wearing off so I was wearing it rarely. While I don't wear it everyday I was very careful at first, then wore it like any other watch. No marks that I have noticed and I have had it for 3-4 months now. Easily the nicest watch I have, and I plan to purchase other Bulova watches in the future.
Summary: I don't know how the other people in here scratched their watches so badly, but I have been pretty rough on my watch and it has held up nicely and the only way you can see the wear is if you examine the watch closely. I have only received compliments on its beauty and if I had the chance to do it all over again I wouldn't change a thing!
Summary: The appeal of the watch is great, however it doesn't retain its charm. Within the first few weeks wear was very obvious(with casual wear, nothing rough). For a Bulova, some sort of scratch resistance is expected.
Summary: I loved the look of this watch, which I got as a gift. However, within a week of getting the watch, the black metal links began to show significant wear. I had just had shoulder surgery, so I spent most of my time with the watch just sitting around, so it isn't like I treated it roughly. The wear was bad enough that I just returned it and got a different watch. Love the look, hate how long it lasted.
