Summary: I've been looking at dive watches recently, not only because I do a fair bit of snorkeling and punish them in other diverse ways, but also because I love the easy visibility of the broad hands and large markers. This is absolutely the classic dive watch format. It is the third Bulova I've added to the collection over the years. With watches having become absurdly over-sized in the past few years, it's refreshing to find something good-looking and solid under 50mm!
Summary: I bought this watch as a "beater" every day watch. It is absolutely beautiful, better than the pictures. For $128 it is definitely worth the money. A few minor things that might bother some people -- the second hand does not line up exactly with the hash marks, the mineral crystal face is essentially flush with the bezel (bezel does not really protect it from scratches), and the bezel is difficult to rotate partly because it is very stiff but also because the ridges are...
Summary: My husband very rarely asks for anything, so I was happy to oblige. This watch is BETTER looking in person than on computer, everything about it is GREAT. My husband LOVED, LOVED, LOVED IT, so did my son, and he's a watch person.
Summary: This watch is very good looking, has a very nice weighty feel and keeps time very precisely. So why four stars? Well, it is $150 and not an Omega. I compared it to an Omega in a store and the fine work on the Omega really does show that $2000 means something. For instance, teh bezel does not move very easily or precisely on the Bulova as it does on the Omega. But this is a very, very good deal and I am very happy with my purchase.
Summary: It's a very nice watch and it looks much better in presence than in picture. It feels solid and very well built. Actually, look for the pictures posted by one of the customers, they are more realistic as far as look and feel than the one posted by Amazon.
Summary: What can I say about this watch that haven't been said yet?... It's a great watch, nice looking, heavy construction, easy to set up (just need to read the manual for a few minutes), really classy and elegant appearence, beautifull blue dial and details in the face markers. there isn't much to add, just buy it, it's a winner!!!
Summary: This is a great watch for the money. Fairly large diameter face, but not too thick. I replaced the metal band with a rubber strap to have a less formal, everyday sporty watch. I wear it in the pool a lot. One note: the face is a DARK blue, approaching black. In fact, in lower lighting it appears black. I thought it would be BLUER. Not a major issue but I have several other black-dial watches and wanted this one to set apart.
