Bought as a surprise gift for my boyfriend for a landmark birthday so I was worried when it arrived as it was much chunkier than I thought. The black face contrasting with the white numbers on the dial and silver indices makes it easy to read without squinting. The face and hands have nice features, such as the contrasting red second hands and dial hands. The lucky recipient likes the sporty look and features such as the black and red chrono buttons. The bracelet is very robust and needed reducing by a few links, which he did easily with his watch pin push kit previously bought for a quid from China so it is a perfect fit. The bracelet has a double clasp so is very secure. The links are deeper than most watches making it quite heavy so a spindly wrist wouldnt take this! this is a very butch watch but looks great on and the first time he wore it out it was commented on ...thats some watch.

Outstanding prices and delivery time. As advised on the site my strap was adjusted at my local goldsmiths jewellers with no hassle, would recommend to anyone. Very impressed.

Having looked at many chronographs I finally decided on this one partly because I already own another Bulova which I have been really happy with.\r\n\r\nThis watch absolutely oozes quality, its got a nice weight and the steel looks and feels really robust.\r\n\r\nDespite its weight, you hardy know you are wearing the watch, it just feels right.\r\n\r\nMy only gripe is the luminesence of the hands. I dont know if it is a Bulova thing but the watch is difficult to read at night, my other Bulova is impossible to read.\r\n\r\nThat said, at around £350 this watch is an absolute steal, you will struggle to find a classier product for the same price or cheaper

Excellent Watch. Fits perfectly for people with bigger wrists, but doesnt look ridiculous on smaller people. Chronograph works perfectly, giving times accurate to a thousandth of a second. Second hand is very enjoyable to watch, very smooth and you can tell just by wearing the watch that it is very well made. As it isnt too expensive its the perfect watch for everyone - works for sports as its quite rugged, but would also work well with a suit. Only bad thing is that the metal strap scratches easily. All in all a 9/10

The watch is great! I collected promptly from a local shop and was really easy to set up, even managed to take a couple of links out myself. I would recommend this watch to anyone, just be mindful of the weight though, I prefer heavier watches so was exactly what I was looking for.

Love my watches and always fancied a Bulova with the UHF QUARTZ movement that give the second hand that classy steady sweep of an automatic without the winding hassles. Lovely large heavy watch which sits well on the wrist and very comfortable.

Let me begin by saying that I am a fan of divers watches, not because I dive but because I like to think that the watch movement whether mechanical or quartz is well protected, and a case that protects against water also protects against the entry of dust and other substances which would stop a conventional watch dead!

Dont panic, when first opened you will notice that this watch is apparently not working. When the crown winder is in the out position only the quartz tuning fork operates. To start, screw the crown back into place on the thread. Also note that while you can get the big red second hand to sweep as might be expected it will be necessary to press the single left button which either prepares the watch for use of the chronograph function the sweep hand will move to the 12 oclock position and ready to start timing or if a time has been recorded and the watch subsequently reset, it will restart the seconds hand which will remember where it should be ... i.e using the chronograph will not put the time out of sync. This is actually a lot simpler to do than to describe, just remember that the single button will both prepare the watch for timing and, if reset, will then start the red second hand sweeping if you want it to.

The watch manual is adequate but hardly inspiring and I think that there will be confusion over use of the tachometer to quote: Step 3. The Hand position, on the numbered scale at the dial perimeter, indicates your speed in kilometers miles per hour. All this means is that if the distance is a measured MILE then the reading will give approximate MPH, however, if a measured KILOMETER then it will give approximate KPH this is an either or - dont mix and match!.

Pros and Cons of the watch ...

Cons

Heavy, if you dont like heavy, chunky watches then this is not for you!

It is not made clear in the instructions if the glass face is sapphire or crystal one type is crack resistant and the other scratch resistant.

Pros

Accuracy: Bulova claim an accuracy of seconds per year for these ultra high frequency watches, this has certainly been my experience with the model this is my third Precisionist, plus 1/1,000 second precision over a twelve-hour time frame [records hours, minutes, seconds, tenths, hundreds and thousands of a second up to 12 hours].

The notches on the bezel are easy to grip and on turning the bezel anti-clockwise the ratchet is positive and precise and should stay where you put it!, some other divers are but with many others it is difficult to rotate the bezel and if gloves are worn, impossible. Likewise the grooves in the crown are deep enough so that the crown can be easily screwed down clockwise or opened anti-clockwise.
Even none divers will find the rotating bezel useful, for example to record elapsed time at a parking meter simply rotate the bezel till the large arrow points at the minutes hand and it will display elapsed time since arrival.

The strap is of the double deployment type, that is there is a safety catch which prevents the strap from accidentally opening - this is pretty much standard on this type of watch. All high quality divers watches will have this feature e.g. the Rolex Submariner. Also, the strap has an expansion feature again found on any decent diver which permits the watch to be used with a wet suit without the need to adjust the size of the watch strap, this is essential if you need to use it.

Luminosity of the hands appears good, even to my old eyes.

Screw-down back and crown minimize the risk of the entry of water, dust or other contaminants which might otherwise damage the mechanism claimed water resistant to 200 meters.

The date window is small but legible and has a quick-set date.

Marks out of 10? 15, yes, it is a real beast of a watch, enjoy.
