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:

Hi

just got my hands on a Bulova Marine Star Chronographe watch.

Bulova has manage to inform me, that the watch was made on their Swiss factory, and was only sold in Europe.

It has a ETA Calibre 251.262 quarts inner, made around 1988 according to Bulova USA

Dos anyone have any more information about this watch?

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.

I have a Champlain (not the gold coloured one!) and its the beast in my collection as I only just fits in the  compartment of atch case when I am not wearing it. I agree about the SeaKing, I like the look of it too! in fact I like most of the watches I have seen on here! Will post pics when I get to 50 posts

Haven't seen those with a polished case and the old style logo before, is it another new edition? Looks nice!

Newbie here to the Bulova Spaceview 50th Anniversary.

May I please ask if that watch is a particularly good watch to own?  They seem to be going for quite a bit of money now and I was wondering...

As it is a "new movement", i.e. new parts, not old parts, in theory, it ought to provide excellent timekeeping without much issues for a good long while, right?

It is also of a larger diameter, more suitable for today's aesthetic.

Thank you all in advance.

Champlain that Davy kindly sent me spare links for so that I didn't have to put it on a strap!

A military model that I bought from Carl on here, He even dropped the price and removed it from ebay for me!! (Some really kind and considerate folk on here!!)..

A Lobster that I traded with a mate, Again, The bracelet had been sized and wouldn't fit my chubby wrist!, Once again the membership came to the rescue and sent me links so I could wear it on it's orginal bracelet!!

The links were the next size down and look slightly strange but they fitted ok and now it stays on the bracelet!!!

My 1967 Astronaut. I love these watches, I have a 1966 too, as well as two Spaceviews, 1970 Cushion and a 1975 Tuning fork case Anniversary model. Also couldn’t resist the N7 Wafflehead Computron LED, as well as the reissue of the Chronograph C
It’s a BULOVA thing !!!!

Hi I've just joined the forum following also getting my first Bulova watch and first foray into 'serious' watches. My 96b251 is on its way, after much searching found one with 25% off at a high street jewelers so very happy with that. The Apollo connection along with strong classic design drew me in, and the accuracy reliability clinched it. Can't wait to get it and share my thoughts
