    Bulova High Performance Quartz CURV Titanium

    Like a fine piece of Artwork that runs amazingly and feels amazing to wear, this watch is some pretty nice engineering by Bulova. Lightweight and comfortable. Can be very dressy or sporty with jeans...Not quite ALL AMERICAN made but still well done. Don't think about changing the rubber strap. It's not happening. At least not until Bulova makes a leather that will fit. I also have the Moonwatch..and 30 other watches. These are keepers for my collection. No Quartz is better than an ACCUTRON at 10 seconds per year? . I love mechanicals but it really is nice to never have to set my watch before wearing it.

    There are quartz watches accurate to 5 SPY.

    And, the experience here has been that the 262 kHz movements don't generally perform to 10 SPY. Mind, they're really good within the overall quartz universe...30-60 SPY, IIRC, and that's fine for most of us...but Citizen, Seiko, and the Swatch brands can all point to accuracy of that level or better.

    Now, I do gotta grant that the Curv in the first couple pics of yours looks pretty cool. Maybe we can ship some of their designers over to Longines............

    It is advertised as 10 sec/year but who really knows? Close enough. It is definitely the first and still the ONLY Curved Chronograph. It's very "Artsy " looking. Like Dali's melting watches actually."The Persistence Of Memory".

    If 262 kHz is Ultra High Freqency, then what is 4 MHz?
    I guess Super High Frequency, since (in the world outside Bulova's marketing department) that comes above UHF.

    I suppose 'Slightly Higher Frequency' wouldn't have much of a ring to it.

    Love the curved movement and display back. Very Moser.

    Quite unfortunate that a Bulova is even mentioned in a High Accuracy Forum.

    For some that is endorsement enough.

    That's the internet for ye!

    I have had a 262 kHz movement for about a year now and it has never been more than 2 seconds off in that time, resetting only for daylight savings time and 1 precautionary battery change.

    Couldn't you say that about any brand or watch? Therefore not really needed, but thanks for the reminder.

    Not sure why it's "unfortunate." Recent data on these threads, and the Bulova forum seems to show that Bulova's are performing as well if not better than most of the 3 hand PreciDrives from Certina on this forum, including mine. I have both brands, only the Bulova ever went a year at less than 10 spy.

    OP nice looking watches you have there, no reason to believe they won't perform well based on recent data, and look forward to seeing your results.
