As soon as I opened the box I knew I made the right choice buying the Bulova 96A119. The watch has superb aesthetic features such as the roman numerals around the dial, and the glistening stainless steel bracelet. But what stands out the most are the little windows allowing you to see the inner mechanics of the watch at work. I myself, a young engineer, am fascinated by this and this adds an extra special quality to the watch. The black, grey and silver colour scheme looks smart and sophisticated as well. After getting links removed from the bracelet, the watch fits perfectly around my wrist and is very comfortable to wear on a daily basis. The fact that there is not battery needed is another great feature as you do not need to worry about replacing it. Overall, this watch is easily the best watch I have purchased. I would advise anyone thinking about buying it to get it straight away!

Really nice watch, well engineered and beautifully finished. I was expecting something a little chunkier when I purchased it but I am not disappointed. The proportions are just right, its a real class act. The bracket fits well and the watch does not move about. I find the automatic movement hypnotising to watch and love the clear windows on the front and back so you can see the workings.

When you open the box and lift up the watch you just feel the quality in your hands. Heavy, but not to heavy, just perfect. And the look of the watch you dont need to talk about, just let the picture speak for them self. For this price you you get a watch which is worth more than twice the money. Really great buy.

But I was anxious when i first got the watch and i noticed that the little fork on the arrow showing second wasnt there. I contacted watchshop and they contacted bulova to make sure this was just a design change, which it was. They made a anxious customer a pleased customer. Really great buying experience from you, will be back!

Excellent quality, nice detail with glass on the back exposing the self winding mechanism. Good value considering its mechanical as opposed to battery.
The only downside is it will stop if not wound or worn after a few days. In daily use this is obviously no problem.

I bought the watch after reading about Bulova. Really nice automatic. Good build. Very good weight. Looks awesome. Could be a classic. Even though it has a Japanese movement the seconds hand roatates smoothly.

UNVERIFIED REVIEW (The reviewer has not yet been verified themselves as a Watch Shop customer)

Another lovely piece for my collection! I spotted this in a jewellers catalogue and it was love at first sight... again. The asymmetric arrangement of the sub-dials and the open balance wheel aperture give the watch a dynamic, sports car feel that instantly caught my eye compared to many other watches. However, in certain lights, the time is not as readable as you might expect. I was also a little disappointed with the lume - it will not last through the night. I have cheaper watches by Seiko and Citizen with lume that will last brightly all through the night. I also have very good close-range vision and spotted about three specks of dust in the plain black area beneath the 24-hour subdial, but nothing to lose sleep over. I spot dust in many watches that others cannot see...

This is an automatic watch with additional manual winding feature to aid instant start. 40 winds get it started from dead and then the internal rotor keeps the mainspring topped up, so no batteries! The case back is glass to expose the movement, and the front crystal is very slightly domed.

The bracelet is solid stainless steel links and there is enough of a gap between them such that wrist hairs do not get plucked out. Ive turned down a number of otherwise quality timepieces where I have experienced this problem. The clasp is of the deployant type which avoids the visual break created by the old-fashioned gatefold type, though I tend to prefer the latter as the buttons used to operate deployant type clasps have a tendency to dig into the wrist. I avoid this by retaining an extra link and wearing it a little looser.

The watch is large, but elegant it has a nice weight without being too heavy or uncomfortable. Overall this is a lovely, unique and classy looking piece of work.

All in all Im very happy with the watch. The watch does not have the tuning fork design on the second hand as pictured in the main photo but this is not a big deal to me as when I opened up the box for the first time I was impressed with how much better it looked than the photos. Detail is good and the watch looks much more premium than its price tag. I have worn the watch for 10 days now and it has gained 1 minute of time which is great considering the movement has accuracy of with quality minute per day. If you are after a very smart automatic watch with a little price tag then this is certainly one to consider

We bought this watch to give as a gift to my brother. When we received this watch it looked better than the pictures. He was delighted to receive this watch. It looks classy and the automatic features are great. You can see inside the watch from the front and back. It looks great on the wrist, perfect size.

Nice watch, good weight and balanced, however one pin in the link is loose which i think happened when getting a few links taken out, i have switched it with another pin and is working so far, the time is actually quick, after a day it is probably 5 minutes quick which i am not happy about and possibly take it in to get it looked at, but the design is very nice

The watch looks good but in person its not what I expected thr design is fine but the links and the strap itself are loose and time to time one of the loose links pop out it may be the design of the strap or it might be faulty.
