H. Lester "Honest, no-nonsense reviews", amazon.com
27 December 2011
Summary: I'd read others' reviews of this watch and I'm glad I did. The original picture of the watch at Amazon displayed the watch in a very bright blue color, while the actual color is nowhere near that bright. It's much darker blue than the picture showed. To make sure, I went to Bulova.com with the model number and their photo was much truer to the watch I received. It's just the right color blue, not too bright, not too dark. I love wearing this watch!
Summary: I chose this watch after much research and site surfing. I recieved it brand new and couldn't be happier. I had a Seiko (still have) for 8 years and loved the look and quality of the Seiko and wore it daily. I have shelved the Seiko and now wear the Bulova every day. The look and size are perfect. The blue is darker but not quite navy blue and the size is great without being overwhelming. Time will tell (pun intended)of the quality of the Bulova but so far so good.
Summary: **Very Attractive Watch** I bought this watch because it featured on the September 2011 GQ Magazine amongst other brands, titled as "Blue Steel" selling for $275.00. Anyways, the watch definitely looks better than the Amazon picture because its actually a much deeper blue (beautiful). It gets a good amount of attention, good weight - feels good on wrist, and it looks great! Also goes well with formal and casual wear.
Summary: In the month since I've owned this watch, I have had more compliments on it than any other piece of clothing or jewelry I own. The item is extremely attractive, sporty, and expensive-looking with the added bonus of it not costing a fortune. The rotating bezel gives a satisfying click and does not feel cheap, and the blue that is present throughout is much more striking and good looking than the pictures suggest.
Summary: This is my first watch in many years. I recently bought an analog Timex which had water vapor appear under the crystal. Amazon was great about returning it. Same thing happened with the next analog Timex. Again, Amazon was great about the return. So, about a month ago I bought this. This watch is exellent. The picture does not do it justice. For a more accurate depiction go to the Bulova website, the blue is much deeper and richer.
Summary: I just bought this piece and as always Amazon's delivery was impecable. As most of the other reviews state the Blue face is darker and the pics dont give it justice. Heavy but not so much to be a negative. Acutally the wieght gives it a quality feel to it. Over all its a very versitile time piece elegant enought for black tie events yet casual enough for dinner and a movie with the wife.
