Review Summary:

A classic look that comes with a very functional date box, the Bulova Men’s Calendar Strap Watch is definitely something you’ll want to wear from work weekdays to casual weekends.

Advantages:

  • This Bulova classic has a sleek design, with a brown leather strap and gold details. It’s perfect for work and even a casual day or night out with friends and family.
  • It also has a date box beside the number 3 on its face, so not only will your watch remind you of the time, but it also reminds you of the date.
  • The brown leather strap made of pigskin leather is durable, lightweight, porous and flexible. This watch then is very light on your wrist.
  • The look is not only classic, but also vintage. So for people who like the vintage, preppy look, this watch will go well with your outfit. Paired with boat shoes and a crisp white shirt, this watch will accentuate your look.
  • For those fresh graduates who are looking to build their professional wardrobe, this watch has a good price tag to it. Invest in this simple, entry level Bulova watch and gradually look for other Bulova pieces.
  • I would also recommend this watch for minimalist people. Unlike modern designs that have a lot of details, this Bulova classic is not bulky. It fits nicely inside a dress shirt, and can stand on its own when paired with a polo shirt on casual days.
  • The white face of the watch and contrasting gold details make it easier to look at the time.
  • The watch is made of quality Japanese quartz movement, so you’re well assured that the watch will always function well.
  • With the water-resistant feature, you will still be able to wear the watch even when you’re out on hot days. This feature also makes sure that your watch doesn’t fall apart when you accidentally run through it while washing your hands.

Disadvantages:

  • Because the strap is made of pigskin leather, it is not advisable to wear it on hot days. Sweat may make the leather have a little odor, and may cause brittleness.
  • The faux alligator embossing on the pigskin leather may also make it look cheap to some people. However, you can still have the band altered if you’re not fond of it.
  • The gold details of the watch may tarnish after some time, also because of sweat. If you have acidic sweat, then I’d recommend the Bulova watches with silver tones. That way, you don’t have to start with a gold tone watch and have it tarnish in a few months.
  • Unlike other Bulova timepieces, this Bulova Calendar strap watch is not shock resistant. So if you’re very tough on your watches, this watch may not survive your usual wear and tear.
  • The lines that represent the numbers may become bothersome for people who can only afford to glance at their watches. It adds however, to the minimalist design of this watch.

A classic look that comes with a very functional date box, the Bulova Men’s Calendar Strap Watch is definitely something you’ll want to wear from work weekdays to casual weekends.
