Look at that hand go!

The invisible hands of the market!

Marvel at the textures, while conversely marveling at the smoothness of the second hand!

Bought a couple of these beauties (one new, one used). Definite favourites !

Then I bought this one but I just didn't bond with it, so back it went. @Davey P, if you think this is small, you're madder than I thought you were !:laugh:

I didn't notice this part of the forum so I'm now joining the Bulova owners club. I have a 3 year old Precisionist on rubber, would like a Champlain and a SeaKing too.

It's a shame the photobucket fiasco has ruined this and many other threads on here...

I completely agree, they've effectively pulled the plug on a lot of the internet. I had an account for over ten years and did have a paid account at one point. It was nowhere near what they expect people to pay now. Account closed!

Here's a few more of my Bulovas.

Now that's better!  thanks Davey. :thumbsup:  I have my eyes on your fourth watch ( so long as it's 42 Ø or bigger)

The Precisionist is easily my biggest/ heaviest  watch but strangely disappears within minutes of strapping it on. Very wearable.

No problem mate, watch number 4 is the UHF Military, model number 96B230, which has proved to be pretty popular around here.  It's actually quite small, at just over 40mm excluding crown, but it wears beautifully on the wrist. Most of my watches are at least 5mm bigger, but this one is a 100% definite keeper and I wear it a lot, which tells you something about it.

Thanks for the info Davey, :thumbsup:  Yes that's a tad smaller than I prefer, will have to get into a B&M to try it on for size.

I'd be pulling the trigger on the Moonwatch in SC if I hadn't already committed my current funds to two other watches. Doh!!!!

It's one of the smallest in my collection, but you should definitely try one on rather than focus only on the size, because it looks great on the wrist.  My wrist is a fairly chunky 7.5", and it looks like this when worn:

I hope that helps anyway :thumbsup:

Thanks again Davey. :thumbsup:

Watching a few  youtube  vids I saw it stated at 42Ø, as it's mostly watch face it will do. That second hand sweep looks even smoother than the Precisionist

although I know it cant be. A proper B&M is at least a 60 mile jaunt for me so..

 

£99.99 on amazon, trigger pulled! :laugh:

Nice one mate, and it's an absolute bargain at that price, well done :thumbsup:

In the unlikely event you don't like it, I think Amazon are pretty good with their returns policy, so you could send it back if you don't like it.

I am a newbie to the forum but have been around Bulovas awhile. I am more of a old school accutron collector but have a couple newer Bulovas also. 

 

I figure one pic will cover my Accutron Astronaut Collection.

My Only M0 Alpha

My only Railroad. Its a M3 B Case Railroad Model "201" Style 21014 /w a Coffin Link Bracelet. I don't believe these came with Coffin Link Bracelets but the case design did so I had an extra bracelet and put it on . I also wear it with a Black Strap.
