It is mechanical automatic, so it winds up as you wear it. Fully wound, it should last about 40 hours. I have a Bulova dress watch and if it uses a similar movement, you can also hand-wind it turning the crown. It is not uncommon for mechanical watches to lose or gain time as you wear them through the day, so if its accuracy you're looking for, buy a Casio.
Words taken from bulova's website about this specific watch: "a watch without batteries or electricity, powered by the energy of a coiled spring and kept in motion by a complex, self winding system perpetauted by your body's natural movement" ...so yea I'm sure it doesn't need you to wind its crown. As long as you wear it'll run forever, I'm in for one!
Meh. For me Bulova is a brand that doesn't make sense. It doesn't look (or in my experience have quality) better than $50-$100 watches, and not the cachet of expensive watches. Just doesn't make sense to me to pay $200 or $300 for a watch... Either buy a Casio or Seiko for a lot less, or upgrade to something you'll keep forever. Just my 2c, not actually gonna vote on this one
In 1960 NASA asks Bulova to incorporate Accutron technology into its equipment for the space program. The CEO of Bulova at the time was Omar Bradley, 5 Star General, US Army, Retired. During those early years Accutron timing mechanisms were used in 46 US space program missions. An Accutron watch movement sits on the moon's Sea of Tranquility today, in an instrument placed there in 1969 by Apollo 11 astronauts, the first men on the moon."
that's what I wanted to know but no one replied
If you have a JCPenny near you, most (if not all) have a Bulova display showcasing the automatic movement. If I'm correct, this is a sweeping not a ticking movement (that I've always thought was way cooler) of the second hand. And before any fact nazis correct me, I know it's not technically a sweeping, but it looks like a fluid movement because you actually get something like 10 ticks for each second so they appear to be a smooth movement instead of the classic tick-tick we associate with a pocket watch.

Do you know how the black color is put onto the watch (Ion Plated (IP), ceramic, etc)? None of the descriptions say (they just say it's stainless steel).
IP, and I have to be careful about wrist placement when using the computer because scuffs do show on the bottom black links.
I have a similar style, same band and mine did have issues after about 2 years of wear with the black coming off the bottom links. I looked for a band replacement, but couldn't find any at reasonable price.
