Bulova 96A135 Review

Bulova 96A135 reviewWhen you wear a big name, you exuberate with a different sort of confidence which comes from the strong background that the brand comes with. A pioneering force in the industry, Bulova transformed how watches were worn and how time was perceived, registering over 50 patents as the company built a record of creativity including the first full lines of men’s and ladies’ wristwatches (1919 and 1924).

To ensure the utmost in precision, in 1920, Bulova even established its own observatory – located atop its New York skyscraper. Bulova 96A135 BVA-SERIES 120 men’s watch is one masterpiece from the same house of Bulova. Black dial and band with a silver case calls for all the praises and appreciation. What makes this watch very different is the design which allows you to peep into the inner machinery.

Automatic Movement

Automatic watches are considered to be heirloom pieces. This means they have the potential to last for several lifetimes. Quartz watches have circuitry which will not last forever, Automatics are built with many moving parts and requires no electronics to run. Therefore the quality of the parts in the piece can lead to a very long.

“Dial” Dynasty

Too many circles on the dial of this Bulova watch with different shade of black create an amusing illusion. “Automatic 21 jewels” written on the dial is a thing to flaunt and feel happy about. But what catches most of the attention is a peek into the inner machinery which s also done in a smart and systematic way.

Two sub dials have hardly anything in common. So you get the variety and “wow” factor. Mineral crystal is used to keep this “wow” intact! Mineral crystal is a kind of hardened glass which is much more scratch resistant than acrylic.

Mineral crystals are also somewhat better at shatter resistance compared with sapphire, especially in cases like this where the crystal is domed. One simple crown is given on silver case which shines great and gets hugs the leather band to complete it as a masterpiece!

Leather Band

Calfskin leather is used for the band and black color adds up the charm to utmost great level. Leather is a premium fabric and is associated with class. As it has holes for your buckle to settle, you can adjust it according to your size of wrist which is generally not possible in chain watches. You need to go to a watch shop to get it altered in case of chain watches.
