Hi and welcome to the forum.:thumbsup:

Yes, that's another along with the Wilton I'll be on the lookout for. My wishlist is looking more like a scroll! :laugh:

It's a shame the photobucket fiasco has ruined this and many other threads on here, would have liked to see Daveyp's collection, how about re-posting? :yes:

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 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.

Anyone else struggling to buy a quartz watch after owning a Bulova with the UHF movement?

Looking at plenty of eco drive reviews on YouTube today, one, because I like solar power and two, because I don't own a Citizen. I'm struggling to get past the clunky second hand that mostly seem to miss the markers.

Just seems a shame the UHF movement isn't available across more manufacturers, unless you know different..

I recently acquired this 1961 14kt White Gold Accutron Alpha from a friend of mine. He had purchased a small lot of unsold accutrons from an older shop owner and in our conversations, this watch came up. I had been looking for a similar Alpha for quite awhile and when this one became available, I bought it. Its in pristine shape.

Yes. :laughing2dw:

I seem to be stuck in a loop of buying either Bulova Precisionists or TW Steels, the Bulovas for their super smooth movements and the TWs for their sheer size :tongue:

Dos anyone have any more information about this watch?
