Bulova Precisonist (Ref: 98B229)
Bulova is one of the few USA based watchmakers around and their range of affordable, quality watches is certainly extensive. So, I was not surprised to see they have a carbon fiber watch in their collection.
This very dark and moody carbon fiber watch is chock full of features including a 4 sub-dial chronograph, a tachymeter on the bezel, and a date window at 4-5 o’clock. But Bulova have not stopped there.
Although the movement is “only” a quartz one, it is quite accurate and has a sweeping second hand, which is a nice touch. On top of that, they have rated this watch to 300m water resistance, so it’s safe to take it almost anywhere in the water.
In terms of style, it has a black stainless steel case and bracelet and a textured carbon fiber dial which adds to the uniqueness of this watch. There are screws around the bezel, reminiscent of Hublots watches, and the blue accents on the second hands and tachymeter are stunning.
