The 96B175 features the term “precisionist” for a reason, and will keep time to within seconds a year for one of the world’s most accurate movements. The second hand continuously sweeps rather than ticks, and the precision chronograph keeps time to within 1/1,000th of a second. The watch features form in addition to function, and resonates with quality that is sure to attract positive attention. Heavy and durable, the 96B175 is a real man’s watch that easily belongs on Bond in a tuxedo.

If an elegant time piece with a classy brown color scheme is lacking in your wardrobe, the 96A120 would be an excellent selection to fill the void. The chocolate guilloche dial is complemented by rose gold toned luminous hands, an open balance wheel, roman numeral hour markers, and a patterned leather band. A skeleton sub dial also allows the wearer to view the intricate complexity of the precise automatic movement within the watch case. Useful for both casual and business events, the 96A120 presents itself with a unique casual charm worthy of any situation.

The 98A139 is another model that features an open balance wheel, though as a whole the piece favors a simpler design without sub dials or Roman numerals. There’s something manly and serious about an all black styled watch. It’s a look for a man moving up in the world and looking good in the process. The 98A139 is from the precisionist collection, and has a continuously sweeping second hand and accuracy to within seconds a year.

The 98B104 Marine Star features a black dial, black band, and rose gold accents on a stainless steel case. The Roman numerals and silver toned hands feature clean cut angles and edges, and the package as a whole presents a refined and polished appearance. Many have commented that this particular watch looks very similar to the Hublot Big Bang (link), which currently sells for around $25,000. If you’re looking for a beautiful stunner of a watch that will work well for both business and casual events you certainly can’t go wrong with Bulova’s 98B104.

Companies and people have built their fortune on the idea that the ultimate form of elegance is simplicity. The 96B104 follows this mantra, and features a clean un-cluttered silver dial with only a date dial at the 3 O’clock. The band is built of handsome and comfortable black calfskin leather, and the whole package is light and satisfying for the wrist. The watch looks great at the office or brunch, and is quite affordable to boot.

The 96C105 is an elegant Japanese quartz watch from Bulova that features some unique features and styling not present on the other models in this list. There are a total of 3 sub dials: one is 24 hour, another tells the day of the month, and the final dial tells the day of the week. It’s this last dial that is fairly original, and I’m not aware of another model that uses the day function in quite the same way on the bottom right corner. The black and stainless steel styling result in a masculine and sophisticated appearance, and no dial space is wasted on unnecessary bells and whistles. The 96C105 is a clean and elegant piece that has been approved by many happy customers.
