A clear and simple looking face. No fancy dials, just does what it does. Elegant and stylish. A great gift for any man.

My son asked for this watch for his 18th birthday so i checked out the prices and this was the best by £20. The watch is pure class,arrived on time in perfect order well packaged. Highly recommended.

This watch is nice to look at being a classic simple design. About the advertising and what people write about it, the dial is light silver not white as the pictures appears. That is poor photography to give that impression. The strap is not too thin as many have written, as it is for a dress watch, not a scouting watch. It is not shallow in depth as other watches are far slimmer. It is also not too light - it has a light leather strap, so maybe these people are comparing it to watches with a heavy stainless steel bracelets.
Now my reservations about the watch. The dial is too big. It is 37mm diameter. 34mm is the ideal size for such a watch, as dress watches should not be too big. Not everyone has a wrist like a tree trunk. Bulova should reduce the diameter of the dial giving a far more elegant appearance that will have greater appeal. Also maybe make it slimmer while they are at it. But it is a nice watch if you have wrists that suit it.
An alternative are the Daniel Wellington watches which are minimalistic with white faces. Very similar to the Bulova but with a white face, rather than silver, and second markers. The case around the dial when looking at the watch head on is slimmer giving a more minimalist attractive appearance. The male version has a 40mm dial, the female version is identical but with a smaller 36mm dial. The female version can be used by a man who does not like the larger 40mm dial or has slim wrists.

Fantastic watch! Got plenty of compliments for the looks. The glass is resistant enough for daily wear. The leather is very smooth and soft - I like it because no more damaged shirt sleeves, plus it feels very nice against the skin.
The seconds hand is a little bit off (by 0.5 mm), but otherwise for this money it can easily be the best understated elegant dress watch one can get.
