Bulova make super-affordable watches that are also worthy of sitting on your wrist. Their classic collection features a whole ream of different watches, but these four are the closest to the Rolex Day-Date you will find.
And with four different colors (see below), along with a two-tone or leather band, you also have quite a bit of choice. And, the similarities are quite extensive with the baton hands, rectangular hour markers, and full weekday display.
Of course, being an affordable watch, they have had to make some compromises over the Rolex. After all, you can’t get a solid gold watch for 200 bucks.
So, Bulova used a Quartz movement, a mineral crystal, and offering only 30m of water resistance. However, many would not see these as problem because this watch is hardly going diving with you or out in the yard to do chores. So, for a great-looking dress watch, it certainly fits the bill.
