Peer into Bulova’s Heart

October 31, 2011 . by Patrick Kansa

Alrighty folks – yesterday, I showcased a watch with a brown dial; the day before that, we had an “open heart” watch.  Toss those together, and what do you get?  Today’s watch in a flavor of (very affordable) Bulova.

Be A Good One

Be a good citizen, that is!  Today’s watch comes to us courtesy of some fieldwork that was done by my wife.  She was out and about, and this particular watch caught her eye, and she brought it to my attention.  And now, of course, it goes on to you.

Wear Your Heart On Your Wrist

From what I’ve been able to tell, this style of dial is called an open heart – it allows you to peer into the movement without having to resort to a display case back or skeletonization.  I don’t know about you, but I like being able to see the mechanical bits whirling around on a…

I’ve had my eye on Prometheus for a while now and it looks like they’ve hit on a winner. The Manta Ray is a 1000M diver that looks like a tank and has the styling of a un-oranged Doxa. It has an ETA automatic movement and gas release.

Tokyoflash Goes Tron With The Kisai 7

Another day, another Tokyoflash watch. The Kisai 7 is a clever, fairly cool watch that looks like something Jeff Bridges picked out of his magisterial beard in the last Tron movie. Priced at $99 for the next 30 hours, you, too, can look like a Program just looking to get out of the CPU.
