Decent Japanese Quartz Movement

Bulova 96C105 unboxing

Like many watches from Bulova, this one also runs via a Japanese Quartz movement.

It powers all the functions including the subdials.

The movement contributes to the watch’s relatively lightweight of fewer than 10 ounces.

This does improve wearability.

It ticks slowly without emitting an audible sound.

It’s fairly accurate and won’t be off by more than 20 seconds in a month.

And from what users and experts say, the built-in lithium battery should last for 2 years plus with easy.

Changing or replacing the battery is easy and is done via the stainless cases.

Unique Analog Date Calendar

We are used to seeing the date shown in a small window.

It will be a simple number and text.

However, the 96C105 brings in a rather odd sty styling.

The date is shown via a small subdial.

It features a silver-tone stick and all the days of the week are indicated.

They stand out in the black background/ dial and bring out a classy look.

The stick will move gradually in the course of the day.

And just like the other time functions, it also relies on the Japanese Quartz movement.

Some consumers nevertheless say that it takes time to get used to this format.

Elegant Masculine Design

Bulova 96C105 dial

This is certainly a man’s watch, just as described.

Looking at it, you’ll see the boldface which should blend well with different settings.

It can be worn for casual and also formal events.

The large round face and black and silver tones go well with different outfits.

Like the case, the bracelet/ strap also looks bigger than other alternatives.

It said to be water-resistant to a depth of 100 feet or 30 meters.

This is something I’m yet to confirm.

But just like other watches in the same category, I would tread carefully when using it in deep or very wet situations such as swimming.

However, since it’s made of stainless steel, it should be able to resist fading, rust, or corrosion.

Classy Stainless Steel Case and Band

To offer the user more guarantee in regards to dependability and durability, the firm has gone for a stainless steel case and band.

The case, just like bezel, is black in color and creates a flashy contrast with the silver-tone band and the sticks and time markers.

The case diameter is 40 millimeters and the thickness is about 11milimeteres.

The band is 22 mm thick and has a smooth finish.

Both the case and band are brushed and elegant.

And to sum up the elegance and manly appeal, the unit features a slightly domed mineral crystal glass.

Final Thoughts

The timepiece looks stylish and also sophisticated at the same time.

The 3 subdues, with the unique coplanar piston contribute to this.

It’s also a sturdy watch, considering it’s made of stainless steel.

And powered by a Japanese quartz movement, it should be an easy watch to take care of.

This watch is without question worth acquiring.
