    is this a good deal?

    Bulova Accutron II - 96B239 Chronograph Watch Is this a good deal? The only down side i see is the lack of a second hand sweep and the mineral crystal

    If you like it, the Amazon price is cheap. These various Bulova models are being mass produced and for $99.00 don't expect much more the a watch that tells time. If you like the looks of it and the price is right, then I would buy it. Its not bad looking compared to some, but these new $100 Bulovas just don't do it for me if I was spending cash on a watch.

    I personally don't care for the "looks" and after all it's still a Quartz. But whatever floats your boat.

    I agree. I'm not a fan of the new bulovas.

    Don't expect more than for it to probably be the most accurate watch you've ever had. Many A-II models are in the $100 neighborhood right now, and do offer something that other brands wouldn't at that price: UHF. Amazon is cheaper is constructive advice. It's another mass-produced fugly quartz really is not.

    PS: not intending to call out minuteman62 by quoting, as this was the most useful comment. Different strokes for different folks. There's plenty I find ugly, too, from every manufacturer.

    No offense taken. I do own both the Bulova Moonview (Astronaut)tribute watch and the Dave Scott Moon Watch. Both are extremely accurate.

    Re: is this a good deal?

    OP mentions downsides: lack of sweep second hand and mineral crystal. If you focus on those, then it's possible a good deal, as I don't see you finding this options anywhere for under $100. As for fugly, that's an aesthetic choice, and personally, the layout of the watch face, I'd prefer a contrast to the sub dials. But I prefer that sort of thing.
