The U.S.-based manufacturer of watches Bulova makes both watches and clocks. This New-York-based company is popular for its amazing watches that have incredible designs and features. The Swiss-Made line of Bulova is called Bulova Accutron or Bulova Accu-Swiss. The company, which is owned by Citizen Watch Co., has been making watches since decades and Bulova Accutron watches are one of its best watch collections. The watch maker has released several watch collections, like Curv, Grammy Edition, Accutron, Harley Davidson, Precisionist, Automatic, Frank Lloyd Wright, Marine Star, Classic, etc.
Grammy is for unique moments of a person’s life like award ceremonies, promotional events, etc. The Curv is a collection of special edition watches, with which Bulova introduced its first curved chronograph movement. Precisionist is a collection of super-efficient watches that shows the most accurate time. Marine Star is for the women, with its stainless steel case and 29 diamond hand set individually on a silver-tone accented dial and bezel. This collection also features sapphire glass, stainless steel bracelet with double-press deployment closure, screw back case, midnight blue pearl inner dial and water resistance of 100 meters. To define iconic style and space-age accuracy, the watch maker came with the Accutron collection. Here is the review of two top watches under its Accutron collection–
Bulova Accutron II Alpha Rose Gold-Tone Skeleton Dial Watch (97A122)
Bulova is very popular for its high performance quartz movement watch that arguably have no comparison when it comes to accuracy. This is because of the frequency of 262 kHz. One of the two watches that I got my hands on recently is Bulova Accutron 97A122. This watch comes from the Alpha Collection, dubbed “Accutron Ii Collection.”
This watch features a stainless steel case that has a diameter of 42mm and thickness of 12.3mm. The case protects the watch from ugly scratches. Further, this model has a trendy appeal due to the rose gold finish. The Bulova Accutron 97A122 has a green dial that is protected by mineral crystal. If you are wondering about the strap, you will be satisfied with the croco-embossed black leather strap that comes with the buckle clasp. This model, however, has one demerit that is its low water resistance – 3ATM. This means that the watch is suitable for everyday use but not for swimming, diving, snorkeling, bathing, showering, fishing and other water related activity. Lastly, you will feel satisfied to know that this model comes with a warranty of 3 years.
Bulova Accutron II Lobster Chronograph (98B252)
Another amazing watch by the American company is Bulova Accutron 98B252. This oval shaped watch features high performance quartz movement that is almost eight times more than a standard quartz. Further, this model features a stainless steel case that has a diameter of 45mm and thickness of 13mm. The case, which comes with a stainless steel band, protects the watch from ugly scratches.
One can wear this watch for both parties and important meetings. The dial of the watch is grey in color while the steel band, which has a thickness of 20mm, is black in color. The dial features a chronograph display and luminous hands. The Bulova Accutron 98B252 has a water resistance of 100 meters or 10bar, which means it is suitable for snorkeling as well as swimming, however, the user cannot take the watch while diving. When it comes to warranty, this watch comes with a 3 years limited manufacturer warranty.
