Bulova Men’s Watch 98G229 Review


Bulova 98G229 Watch Review Summary

My rating: 9/10. Excellent watch. Very impressive watch design.

Today I’m doing a Bulova 98G229 review. Now this is an absolutely stunning watch, I just love this black gun metal design with the blue detailing on the hands, it’s superb. This watch is part of Bulova’s Precisionist Chronograph series which has a focus on accuracy. It utilizes a super quartz UHF (Ultra High Frequency) movement that gives the watch this sweeping second hand and accuracy to within seconds per year. The impressive chronograph function can record to 1/1000th of a second all on an analogue dial. To top things off the watch features a sapphire glass front which has a Mohs hardness rating of 9, it’s nearly impossible to scratch this type of glass.

If you love luxury chunky watches then I recommend you consider this beast, it has a casing diameter of 46mm and a thickness of 19mm, this watch will stand out on your wrist with its impressive size and design. If you like this brand why not check out my Bulova watches review next.

This Bulova 98G229 also features a 300m water resistance with a screw down crown. Screw down crowns are a lot better than your standard push in crowns when it comes to water resistance, anyone looking for serious water protection knows to go for a screw down crown.
