I've received this watch as a birthday present from my grandparents. I believe they've purchased the watch through Princetonwatches.com. Normally, I don't like wearing watches. Because I have such a small wrist, I have to get all my watches adjusted. Also, I'm picky with the watches I wear. I need a watch that has functions that I can easily use/understand and I refuse to purchase a watch without roman numerals, as I absolutely adore the classic style. That being said, this is the only *emphasis added* watch I have.
Not only does this Boluva meet my standards, but exceeds them completely. This is, by far, the most practical watch I've ever seen on the market. It's reasonably waterproof, simple, but stylish, keeps track of the time (military included), day of the week, and day of the month. However, the watch can't keep track of how many days there are in each month. For example, November has only 30 days, so the watch will have 31 on December 1st. So, it has the potential of being off if you don't pay attention and adjust the watch appropriately. Although, the adjustment is easy, just make sure you don't throw the manuel away. Even if this happens, Bulova has the instruction manuel on their website that's easily downloadable into your computer.
The watch has also proven to take a beating. Aside from some major coffee spills, the clasp has taken a scratch, but I rubbed it with a soft cloth to remove some scuff. Although the scratch is still there, the watch still looks new after six months of wear. Again, despite all this, the watch still works perfectly.
Since I'm a college student, I can't purchase another Bulova to add to my collection anytime soon, but I am considering another model (96A119) once I get my first job and can actually afford one. Funny enough, I know this watch will last me well past that time, so I can wait...!
It's been exactly three years since this watch was given to me and it still works the exact same as the first day I got it. It keeps perfect time and I still can't believe how a good quality watch can be this classy and functional.
