Excellent value, but not perfect
If you are looking for a nicely built matte PVD style chronograph with some heritage for a reasonable price, this is a strong candidate.
It's not too big on the wrist, gets nice compliments and keeps fantastic time. The chrono seconds hand sweeps like an auto.
On the downside, I wished Bulova spent a little extra to make this a real tool watch.
1: drill lug holes. The standard spring bars are virtually impossible to remove
2: better lume. Weak at best only lasts a few hours
3: ditch the leather strap. It needs a bracelet or a NATO
I really do enjoy it very much, may get it properly lumed. Recommend.
