    High Performance Quartz is Bulova's new designation for UHF. I suspect you have a newer model.

    I couldn't hold out any longer. I have a Moon Watch on bracelet on the way to me! Can't wait to get it...love the look and history behind the watch. The extensive reviews from A Blog to Watch and Average Bros put me over the edge.

    I'm also quite close to pulling the trigger on the moonwatch with bracelet. I think I'm going to go with the bracelet version and look for a leather strap to match.

    They are lovely watches. I only sold mine because I found it too large. If they ever make a smaller one, I'm back!

    The bracelet is what I had. Read other threads about adding straps. You'll need curved spring bars as the pin holes are to close to the head to allow straight bars to be use during with the straps. The strap version of the watch apparently has holes positioned differently. Weirdly.

    I used various s traps with the curved bars and all was well. Good luck!

    Yes, I definitely liked the bracelet more. I got mine on Ebay from a reputable AD for $395 shipped (+ a measly 1% back from Ebates), which seemed to be the best price I could find. Sorry...I have to enable! :)

    I'm wearing Vlciudolis watch at the moment :) beatiful watch, but I also feel, that it's a bit big for me (lost weight about 10 kg with a one year and wrist is shrunken from 7,5 inches to 7 inch). So this one is for sale and I'm waiting Bulova to make smaller version (also sweeping second hand would be cool instead of 1/2 ticking).

    If they do make a smaller version which is unlikely, it would need to be the same size as Scott's prototype which was 43mm. 45mm is in keeping with modern sizes. Traditionally cushion shaped watches tend to be larger.

    So I tried it on today at a local store, and couldn't help but feel it wore quite big. I knew going in it was a good sized watch, but now I'm having second thoughts. Granted, it was the strap version, but still it didn't feel 'right' on the wrist.
