Its not easy to get a good looking dress watch with practical function acting as a tool watch. The art of combing both being practical(like timing bezel, lume/ lume pearl) while at the same time needs to look elegant is definitely not a easy task.
That is why I think this Bulova marine star 98C71 is winner. A very practical watch that allows it to be wore at any occasion. Usually most dress watch will not bother even with adding lume. This bulova marine star has a timing bezel showing only the 15, 30, 45 numeral while the every 5 mins mark is represent by the elegant gold strap on the bezel. The gold strap also acting as grip for easy turning of the bezel even with gloves on. Making it very practical if you really use the bezel to time some events. Day/date is bonus for giving more info for user. With 100m WR, you need not worry jumping into pool with it. Even a scuba dive with it looks possible. The lume giving user the benefit of knowing the time in dark areas..
Most importantly, if you are going for a party. I am sure this bulova shall can match up with your smart attire
This is my first bulova and I am very impressed with it. Its very well finished despite the little cost of it. Bezel turns crisply. Definitely a keeper for me!
