    Got Bulova's latest Baselworld 2015 release UHF !

    I was always curious to own Bulova's precisionist movement but never liked the huge watches. After few years, looks like Bulova has refined the movement and fits in better shaped and smaller case. Among the recent Baselworld announcements, I remember liking this particular military model (I read the article at ABTW) which reminds early years of Rolex Oyster Perpetual watches. Recently it started showing up for sale at few places and I had to get one. So, here it is...

    Watch is pretty good for the price and there is little heft to it in spite on the Nato strap. The buckle is good, logo on crown and best and obvious part is the second hand sweeping movement which is very good(no am not ditching my Grand Seiko Spring Drive plans). The watch is 42mm and 10.8 mm thick and sits flat on the wrist. The red color at the end of second hand adds charm to the smooth movement. Overall this is good summer grab-n-go watch with sweeping seconds and clean dial and perfect on my wrist with accuracy of just few seconds per year.

    Now to some of my not-so-good mobile pics of Bulova Accutron II Military 96B229....





    Added small video to see smooth second hand movement(processing now.. will load after sometime)


    this one is from WornandWound


    this one fro ABTW

    Not usually a big Bulova fan but I really like this one. Vintage loos are very cool. Do you know the lug to lug distance?

    I believe its 46mm, not big at all. Perfect size IMO.

    Saw this at the local watch dealer shop (here in Hong Kong). Very nice looking in person and very tempting.
