This next model has neither an interesting back story nor any groundbreaking features. Indeed, it is something of a Rolex Day-Date homage that I previously included in my article here. Even the name lacks something when compared to the ‘Devil Diver’. Surveyor just doesn’t quite sound as exciting.
So why have I selected this watch?
For two reasons. Firstly, I really like the design. It may not be original, but it is a classic style and this plainer version of the day-date is a tried and tested look.
Bulova has done it very well.
Secondly, it demonstrates the variety in the Bulova catalogue. This is a list of the best Bulova replica watches usa based on my tastes. I’ve included nothing from the Curv, Futuro, Marine Star and Precisionist lines. I want to show what Bulova can do when producing a dress watch.
Like the classic styling, the sizing is also as we’d expect. It’s 39mm – a nice mid-size that keeps the watch with a foot in both the modern and vintage camps. It’s a quartz watch with a very simple design – this silver version being among the plainest of the colour options.
Bulova has a history with Sinatra, having sponsored his TV show and this collection references that golden period of the 1950s and 1960s. Each watch is named after a Sinatra song, with the Fly Me to the Moon and The Best is Yet to Come being my personal favourites.
This model is a classically styled dress watch, with a decidedly vintage aesthetic. Of the case and dial options, this black and stainless steel combination works best for me. Powered by a Miyota automatic movement and with a lizard grain strap, this version has an attractively textured dial with Sinatra’s signature on the lower half.
Nice touches include the exhibition case back and the Fedora Hat etched on the crown.
Bulova has a longstanding relationship with the US military. Not just as a best replica rolex supplier, but as we noted earlier, they also ran a watchmaking school to help retrain injured veterans (read more here).
The Hack is a remake of a classic Bulova military watch (see more about reissued watches here). With that in mind, the design is very much as expected. It’s a mid-sized, mechanical watch with no unnecessary design features.
It’s legible, has a 12/24hr dial and an easily replaceable leather strap.
When Bulova pushed the limits of a divers watch to 666ft, the Devil Diver was born.
Described by Bulova as a tribute to their 1970s Oceonographer this is a slightly modern twist on the watch dubbed the Devil Diver. Like the Lunar Pilot, it’s another chunky workhorse of a luxury replica watches – albeit with more colour and flair. There are three variations available, each with distinctive colouring.
With the retro cushion case and dial this ticks the boxes for a reissue. The sapphire crystal has a box magnifying lens over the date window which isn’t a common feature. The same can be said of the lume filled tubes that are used for the hour markers. Both are nice features that catch the eye.
Whilst not a unique design, it’s great at what it was set out to achieve. An affordable retro-styled diver with a colourful back story.
