CASE: SUPER SHARP ALL-STEEL C-SHAPED CASE MEASURING A HEALTHY 39mm NOT INCLUDING CROWN(CARAVELLE REPLACEMENT) BY 41.5mm LUG TO LUG. THIS CASE IS IN EXCELLENT CONDITION MAINTAINING ITS ORIGINAL BRUSHED FINISH ON TOP. THIS ONE WEARS REALLY NICE AND BIG WITH THAT WIDE DIAL AND THIN BEZEL.

 

DIAL: THIS FACE IS SIMPLY STUNNING. IT'S ALMOST HARD TO CAPTURE IN PHOTOS THOSE BRILLIANT COLORS. THE BACKGROUND OF THE DIAL IS A CLEAN SILVER FINISH WITH BLUE PRINT. BUT, CHECKOUT THOSE GNARLY BLUE/RED ACCENTS ON THE APPLIED MARKERS AND THAT FABULOUS HANDSET. TRITIUM LUME PLOTS ARE WELL PRESERVED AND MATCH PERFECTLY WITH THE CREAMY LUME ON THE HANDS. I DIG THAT BLACK/STEEL SECONDS HAND. JUST SO MUCH COOL 70s FUNK ON THIS FACE. THE 2-TONE DAY/DATE WINDOW IS DEFINITELY A NICE TOUCH. CRYSTAL IS IN GOOD SHAPE, BUT THERE ARE A FEW SCRATCHES THAT I WAS MAINLY ABLE TO BUFF OUT BUT WOULD PROBABLY COME COMPLETELY OUT WITH A LITTLE POLYWATCH.

 

MOVEMENT: THIS GENTLEMAN RUNS ON A HIGH-GRADE A.SCHILD 17JEWEL AUTOMATIC DAY/DATE MOVEMENT.  BOTH DAY AND DATE ARE QUICKSET ON THIS MODEL. WATCH RUNS STRONG AND KEEPS GOOD TIME.

 

WATCH COMES MOUNTED ON A PERIOD APPROPRIATE HIGH QUALITY JB CHAMPION STEEL BRACELET WHICH FITS REALLY WELL ON THIS BULOVA.  YOU REALLY GOTTA SEE THIS ONE IN PERSON TO GET THE FULL APPRECIATION. IT'S REALLY SUCH A BEAUTIFUL WATCH WITH SOME GREAT POPS OF COLOR AND SOLID WRIST PRESENCE.
