Since I have to do the DST thing I am going to jump the gun by 9 days and say that a Bulova model 98B210 is going to meet the 10 s/yr spec it is currently 6.8s fast after 357 days.
Measured using photography, remember with a sweeping hand I don't have to use burst to resolve .2s. Wear pattern was very little over the winter, maybe once every 2 or 3 weeks.
Numerous reviews on this model all over the web and I will just highlight what I and others have found.
Size at 47.5 mm and weight of 5oz is certainly not small but due to the shape of the lugs wears a little smaller. This along with the comfortable silicone strap gives a nice feel.
Finish of case brushed on top and polished on sides is well executed. Lume is pretty weak but the crown is 60 click unidirectional and solid. Readability of the skeleton hands is is okay under normal lighting, not so much in low light. But subdials are almost always clearly readable.
All subdials and second hand align perfectly, remember in chrono mode the second hand ticks like a traditional quartz, and it hits all the markers along the dial.
Been in the ocean and pool and WR seems okay, and rated at 200m.
As far as the sweeping second hand it is equal or superior to any mechanical 7750, 2824-2, or a Rolex I could put beside it. The only movement that appears a little smoother might be the B 01 from Breitling. But since the B01 is a subdial I don't know if it's a fair comparison. But it's definitely better than a 7750 subdial so I don't know.
The only items left will be battery life and aging, and I will update if anything of note occurs.
Cris had a list of reasons why you might buy one, I might add the unique or just dumb cool factor. Remember these are all just watches and there just aren't any other watches with technology like it. The 1/1000 dials sole function is essentially for a drinking game start stop reaction time test. The sweeping second hand looks cool to most folks and becomes a test if you can see 1/16th of a second. If you're a traditionalist this may be irrelevant but to me and others there's always room for cool and hopefully accuracy.
If anyone has a current Bulova meeting spec, or not, feel free to add to this thread.
Not going to post any pics, I've posted plenty on this watch on various threads.
