- Thanks Tom! The blue is amazing, I just cant get a photo that truly shows it. The lume is OK it seems to fade fast but this is a dressy sort of watch anyway. Got it for $188 (+4% Rakuten) I spent my money I was going to spend on the new Timex M79 that sold out in an hour or less. Now I want one of the Bulova Surfboards too.
I almost didn't buy this one (and the reason I didn't buy the other two Timex retros they came out with) was the size. This is 39mm (under my self imposed limit for a new watch of 40mm). I am glad I took the chance because this wears larger than 39mm because of the case shape and bezel design. If you have a 7" wrist or smaller this strap would need holes punched in it, it is sized perfectly for a big wristed guy like me. Anyway I love it.
You are very very welcome Gary !
Can really see why you are loving this one so much, and loved just
hearing the story of how you came to pick this up.
It's funny how often times, things end up working
in a certain way isn't it?! I mean you were originally thinking about that Timex, and then because it was
sold out, it sent you into Bulova mode.
..Then, on top of that, you were thinking it might be a little too
small also, but it ended up being great at the end of the day. This hobby rocks really, and now all of the
sudden you are even eyeing one of those new Surfboards?!!
Those are outstanding also sir !
Really seems like Bulova is on a roll Gary ! You can really see the bang for your buck in every
detail in their watches lately. ..Seriously, just that hypnotic blue you mentioned is worth $188 !
Oh, and that lume looks pretty great too, and especially for a dress watch like you said.
Looks amazing on your wrist sir ! Hope you really enjoy G !!!
