Writer on, and amateur collector of, watches of all types. Along with my writings here, you can find additional watch-related thoughts from me over on aBlogtoWatch. If you're on Twitter, you'll find me there as @ABTW_Patrick (for the watch stuff) and @pkansa (for everything else).


Bulova Goes For The Gold with the Joseph Bulova Collection First Edition

When it comes to watches from Bulova, we tend to see them as being nicely designed pieces, mostly quartz driven and affordable.

These days, you would also be ignoring the new direction they attempting to take things in, which is underscored by the Joseph Bulova Collection First Edition 24-Karat Gold watch.

On the other hand, the Frederic Jouvenot Surya puts those gems to a rather clever use.
