Bulova Accutron 65B145 Men's Gemini Collection
Bulova Accutron 65B145 Men's Gemini Collection

Price: 239.99

5.0 out of 5 stars looks great on, has a decent weight and feel, 16 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is my 4th bulova watch, simply because they make quality and stylish watches at sensible prices.
This model is a stunner! It ticks all the boxes for me, looks great on, has a decent weight and feel, and as an automatic has a good 35 hour reserve for when you are not wearing it. Not sure of the exact movement, but read somewhere that it houses a good quality ETA movement. It has kept perfect time on every wear, but that is no surprise with bulova, there reputation for timekeeping is legendary. The strap is thick leather with a 2 button release, once adjusted to your length, it never needs undoing again, which can be a pain on branded leather straps, because regular fastening/unfastening can wear the leather and shorten the life of the branded strap. Not the case here.
Also it is a GMT, which means you can set the extra hand at a separate hour for a world time, the hand in question is finished with a nice red crescent moon on the end.
Rose gold hours, hands and winder are a nice touch, and finally the glass back reveals the engine in all it's glory, beautiful!
Highly recommended, and as it is heavily discounted now, due to it being a 2011/2012 model, it is an absolute bargain.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Buy!, 25 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Worth the wait from the far east to the uk. Links are highly polished, and well crafted. They are flat, so sit very comfortable on the wrist. It is a perfect weight, not too heavy, but not light either. Looks stunning on the wrist, in fact the pictures dont do it justice. .......and the price is just pure value.
If your prepared to wait a few weeks for delivery, then go for it, you wont be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unbelievable Value!, 1 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Basically you are getting Connie's first 8 albums for a ridiculously low price. If Elvis was the ultimate male 50's star, then for me Connie was the female equivalent. Heartbreakingly beautiful ballads, rock n roll, Italian classics, Christmas favourites, the list goes on,there is something for everyone on these discs, (2 albums per disc) all sung to perfection by the greatest female singer of all time. There is nothing to consider at this price, just go ahead and buy it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Picture vinyl sounds like shmuck!, 21 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is for the vinyl picture disc version. It gets 1 star for the sound quality of this version, it is that bad. Now I know that picture disc vinyl is inferior to standard black vinyl in terms of sound quality, but this is just plain awful. If your thinking of purchasing this on vinyl, then buy the normal version. Should look good on the wall though!

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome 3D Animation!, 8 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you have a 3d tv and player then don't think twice about buying the 3d version of this movie, it is simply stunning. At times I found myself pausing certain scenes, just to take in the amazing effect and jaw dropping animation. Other plus points are - the gorgeous colours - the witty gags - and for me great replay value. I can't comment on the 2d version, as I have not seen it as of yet, but it must look glorious just the same. Animation is an underrated art form, full marks to the makers of this work of art. 5/5

5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning Vissuals, 9 Feb 2008
I hired this from amazon just to put my new playstation 3 and 1080p tv to the test, as i had already read a few reviews praising the quality of the image on this movie. But in all honesty it even passed my expectations, to the point that i am now going to buy it. I can assure you i am very hard to impress when it comes to picture quality, in fact i nit-pick almost every film i watch, but with this movie, i found nothing to moan about visually, and i think that's a first for me. Stunning detail, wonderful colour tones, and deep blacks, and animation that flows beautifully and smooth. The panoramic shots of the city from the roofs are incredible, as is the fight in the rain sequence. The whole movie in my opinion is pure demo material. I admit like many others the story could have been a lot better, but i think the problem here is that it looks so good, that the above average story here is passed off as below average. In short the story/plot just simply cant match up to the quality of the image, but the truth is the story is actually quite good, had it not been, i wouldn't buy it. I think critics of this movie should try and remember that this is a cartoon with cartoon characters and that it is meant to be fun. So enjoy, because "It is great fun."
