Bulova 98A139 Review | Customer Reviews | Check Prices

Very classy and well built, this beautiful black watch from Bulova will surely suit your tastes.

It provides one of the most accurate movements, being powered by Japanese quartz. It features a stainless steel case, plus a leather calfskin strap that comes with black ion-plated accents. Adorning its black dial face are thick baton markers accompanied by minute markers and indicators at the inner rim.

The almost absent bezel contributes to the easy visibility of this watch. Meanwhile, protecting the face is a curved mineral crystal window. This watch has a large face, but not too large that it’s bulky. In fact, it fits very nicely and comfortably. Overall, this is another excellent and beautiful watch from Bulova that you’ll like whether you’re a fan of Bulova or not.

SEIKO SARY055

SEIKO SARY055 Review | Customer Reviews | Check Prices

There’s not a lot of automatic watches out there at the same price that would easily match with this versatile dress watch from SEIKO.

It features a stainless steel case with the stainless steel band seamlessly attached to it. This watch is very pleasing to the eye with its elegant appearance, yet minimalistic design. Its white dial is adorned with nothing, but baton hour markers, dark blue hands, a rectangular date display window at the 3rd-hour marker, and minute indicators at the outer rim.

The bezel is also not too thick, which adds to the watch’s seamless look. If you’re after a watch that’s dressy, but not too stuffy, this is the watch for you.

The uniqueness and class of this Nixon dress watch is outstanding, with its deep blue accent something that you will seldom see in watches in its category.

It features a 42 millimeter stainless steel case and a stainless steel band and is powered by Japanese quartz movement. The link bracelet, on the other hand, comes with a fold-over clasp. What makes this watch look very elegant, though, is the black dial accented with blue hour markers, sub-dials, and skeleton hands.

All of these are protected by a mineral crystal window. The watch also has a date display window by the 4th-hour marker, plus a Nixon logo just below the 12th-hour marker. Lightweight and comfortable to wear, this is the perfect timepiece whenever you need to just relax or unwind.
