You know what?
On the surface, this 63C113 Bulova Gemini has a very straight-to-the-point design.
But the details of the watch tell a much different story.
This timepiece is equipped with a chronograph, a day and date window, and a Swiss Automatic movement.
There definitely isn’t much to complain about when it comes to the timekeeping capabilities of this watch.
The only way to truly appreciate this watch though is to check out the details.
Subtleties such as the textured dial and onion crown make this watch ideal for those who want a touch of class in their everyday look.
And in this Bulova Gemini review, we take a look at all this watch has to offer.
- Automatic Swiss Made Movement; Chronograph Functions with 60 Second and 12 Hour Sub dials; Date and Day of The Week Window at 3:00
- Black Dial with Silver Tone and Red Hands, Silver Tone Hour Markers; Sapphire Crystal; Stainless Steel Case and Bracelet
- Swiss-automatic Movement
- Swiss Automatic movement requires no battery
- The case size works great with both large and small wrists
- High contrast colors used in the dial allow for easy reading of the time
- The chronograph is easy to manipulate
- Loses a couple of seconds throughout the day (which is common for these movements)
A Design Of Pure Class
Whenever I think of Bulova, I automatically think of their incredibly classy designs.
And when looking at this watch, it’d be easier to understand why.
The stainless steel case and bracelet simply shines.
I’m definitely going to put in an effort to keep the shine on this watch.
The markers and hands on the dial do their best to match with the stainless steel case of the watch by sporting a similar silver tone.
I especially like the spearhead hands that blend with the arrow markers in a way that makes reading the time very easy.
To add to that, the textured black background of the dial really makes the sub-dials and markers pop out, not only making the watch easy to read, but also makes it stand out.
The onion crown of the watch is very classy and is nicely balanced by the two buttons beside it that control the chronograph.
If you’re a person who appreciates the details, then this watch may be something for you.
A Movement That Requires No Battery Changes
The beauty of an automatic movement is that it solves the issues most people have with mechanical and quartz movements.
While it doesn’t have the same accuracy as quartz, losing a couple of seconds a day, automatic movements don’t have batteries that need to be changed every now and then.
And since the watch gets wound by the movement of the user’s wrist, having to manually rewind the watch like with mechanical movements is not an issue either.
As long as you make sure to set the time correctly on the watch after a couple of weeks, then having the wrong time won’t be an issue.
And as long as you have this watch on your wrist on a regular basis, you won’t have to worry about it losing power.
Just The Right Kind Of Functions
My biggest complaint with a lot of casual watches nowadays is how many complications are stuffed into them.
When I look for an everyday watch, I don’t need too many things, accurate time, a chronograph, and a calendar are just about enough.
However, this watch has a bit more than that, but I’m not complaining.
Instead of a simple calendar, the Gemini also has a day window, which is just as convenient as the date display.
Aside from that, the watch simply just does its timekeeping job.
Which is nothing to complain about for an everyday watch.

Customer Scores and Reviews
The Amazon review section was filled with positivity.
Customers who bought the watch loved how the watch looks on the wrist.
One of them even said that with the right suit, this watch also makes a great formal accessory.
Another one was so impressed with the design he even compared it to watches that cost more than a thousand dollars.
However, the one complaint I saw was about the movement.
While it is true that automatic movements lose a couple of seconds a day, this is a compromise for the fact that the watch isn’t powered by a battery.
As long as you remember to set the time every couple of weeks or so, this loss of time will be barely noticeable.
I have no real complaints about this watch, as it does its job perfectly.
The way the watch is laid out makes for very easy time reading, the functions are great for day-to-day activities, and the design is stunning.
If you’re looking for a balanced and stylish timepiece, then the Bulova Gemini deserves serious consideration.
