Bulova 96B175 Review
Actions speak louder than words! Things you do or wear also build your image in front of a stranger who might be meeting you up for the very first time. Bulova 96B175 Precisionist Chronograph Watch is for those who want to project a bold image of them.
The world’s most accurate watch with a continuous sweeping second hand. Most quartz watches are accurate to within 15 seconds/month. Precisionist is accurate to within 10 seconds/year. With Precisionist, Bulova has added a third prong to a standard two prong quartz crystal creating a torsion resonator.
This innovation results in eight times the vibration frequency of a traditional quartz watch resulting in the most accurate watch with a continuously sweeping second hand. It’s not only bold in terms of mechanism but the looks also talk much about the daring image that this watch has.
Precision in “Movement”
Japanese quartz movement is an extremely accurate electronic movement developed in Japan that utilizes the natural frequency of vibrations of a quartz crystal to regulate the operation of the timepiece.
Not only does it makes watch accurate but takes away the worry of changing battery every now and then.
The aesthetic movement of the second hand becomes the symbol to the consumer of Bulova Precisionist and signals a watch with accuracy so exceptional, you can see it.
The technology is accurate to 10 seconds per year as compared to most other quartz watches, which are accurate to fifteen seconds per month.
“Dial” in style
Multiple-layer black carbon fiber and silver dial is very grand in its appearance.
Four different chronographs simply rule the dial. Mineral crystal is used as a dial case, which is much more scratch resistant than acrylic.
Mineral crystals are also somewhat better at shatter resistance compared with sapphire. Four small nuts on the case add a very rugged look to this Bulova mens watch.
Chronograph measurement of hours, minutes, seconds, 1/10-seconds, 1/100-seconds and 1/1,000-seconds, red continuously sweeping second hand, luminous hour and minute hands, luminous markers, calendar, screw-back case, screw-down crown, and water resistance to 300 meters.
All this makes it a watch that provoke greed that human creed posses.
Steel stainless band looks trendy and it looks as if 3 small cube chains have been linked to hold the case. The whole design gives it a very modern 3D feel.
Although, current owners of the watch warn about the strength and advise to use it in a subtle manner.
