Bulova Precisionist Men's 96B259 Quartz Chronograph Leather Strap 44.5mm Watch $131.99 with Free Shipping.

Next cheapest that I'm aware of is $245 on Amazon, but to be fair I didn't look that hard. Most places seem to have it for over $300. $131.99 is good enough for me Smilie

Have this watch, love the smooth action of the second hand, it's very different from a conventional quartz watch. Makes the movement of my automatic watches look jagged in comparison. Also love the completely over the top chrono accuracy.

The only downside of these 262kHz Bulova watches is that it eats batteries relatively faster than a conventional quartz, but that's totally fine by me.

This is a good price.

Good to know you like yours. I've had my eye on this one for a while now and when I saw how much the price had been lowered I finally bit.

I also have this watch. The most impressive thing about it to me is the overall design. It's just a perfect chronograph design. Most high-end brands don't have any better designs than this.

If you want a single all-purpose inexpensive watch, you'll be hard pressed to beat this one.

Tempting, good deal! Wish it had sapphire crystal. Had the Bulova Moon watch and precisionist quartz is a great movement.

I also had the moon watch. This one is better. Smooth sweeping second hand and 1/1000th second chronograph.

How can we make sure that it is a real Bulova and not a very good replica? I have 3 Bulova watches and just bought one from Amazon on BF but I am sending it back, seems like they made lower quality watches just to sell during the holiday season.

Pay with PayPal.

From the seller:

"It comes complete with tags, paperwork and a valid manufacturer's warranty through the proof of sale."

Confirm the tags with Bulova if you believe it's a fake. If you were to have a problem then PayPal covers these things.

That said, that applies to almost everything you buy on eBay. In this case I can say the seller is legit fwiw. I have bought from them before.

Okay, that makes sense. Which other models did you buy?

A while back I got a Bulova 96A122 BVA that I had been looking for. It was an older model that I really liked. One of the last where Bulova still did the Pitch Fork logo.

And of course I just bought this one but I haven't gotten it yet to tell you my thoughts.

Ditching the Pitch Fork logo was a big mistake, 50% of the reason why I bought Bulova watches in the past.

I don't get why they did that either. It was one of the reasons I really liked their watches.
