This is my first post, and I need some advice. I've only had fossil watches all my life, and a few months ago my girlfriend purchased me a automatic fossil grant, and I fell in love with it. I loved that a small portion of the watch was skeleton to see the components working yet the face was still elegant. This watch became the gateway for me, I started searching information about watches and found this forum. Now I'm starting to learn about movements, and reputable watchmakers. I now realize that fossil is a fashion watch, and not a true "watchmaker watch." Long story short, I want to purchase my first "real" watch and need some help. The one that has really caught my eye is a Bulova. How do you all feel about bulova? are they reputable, are they a "watchmakers watch" and how do they compare to say Sekio, Citizen or Tissot.
Here is the link to the Bulova that I am really digging:
Amazon.com: Bulova Men's 96A118 BVA Series 120 Silver Tone Stainless Steel Watch: Clothing
Is amazon safe on selling genuine watches?
and also notice how the one in the first link is $279 and has the Bulova logo above the 12?
This appears to be the same watch for $239 but it does NOT have the Bulova logo above the 12
Amazon.com: Bulova Men's 96A118 "BVA Series" Dual Aperture Dial Watch: Bulova: Clothing
This might sound crazy but I would purchase the more expensive one, just to get that logo, I really like it and would want it on the face. However I'm worried that even if i do purchase the $279 one that shows the logo in the picture, that they could still send me the other one. Could this happen?
I just need some all around advice, I want to love my purchase and keep this new found watch love going.
Thanks so much for reading and helping! It means a lot!
