I've had the my own one of these now for a seven years and still love it not many watches at all at any price point 300m divers watches with chronograph and rotting bezel and good lume and this well made and also a lovely solid chunky case. With good size well made divers rubber strap. The watch is built like a tank, as it should be, since it's a 300m (1000ft) water resistance dive watch.
The case back has a nice design too. Bulova Sea King Chronograph is a bit bigger than an.
Average watch (lug to lug width 56mm) and heavier (weight without band 170 grams), hence if you have a small wrist, it may not be right for you. The bezel is etched and easy to grip.Both the crown and chronograph pushers are screw down. Tuning fork logo as well. The watche's lume is surely above average; it will dim after some time when been out of the light, but continues to be readable through the night. The 262kHz Bulova (Miyota made) 8136 quartz UHF movement seems to be quite accurate; according to the manual, Bulova Sea King Chronographs' "Exclusive Three Prong Torsional Resonator" gives accuracy within 5 seconds/month, i. Roughly 50 - 70 seconds per year accuracy. Therefore, it should be understood that Bulova 262kHz UHF watches are not as accurate as Bulova 262kHz Precisionist watches, which should have +/- 10 seconds/year accuracy.
262kHz UHF watches, as this Bulova Sea King Chronograph, are still far more accurate than regular or average quartz watches. Chronograph features are 1/10th of a second at the 3 o'clock, sweeping second (central chronograph second) and 60 minute at the 9 o'clock positions. It should be noted that the chronograph second (central second) hand sweeps 1/8 second intervals only when activated. Second hand (normal running second) at the 6 o'clock position jumps in 1/2 second intervals. I quite sure that chronograph pushers cannot be used underwater.The Bulova marked rubber diving strap is very solid and gives comfortable presence on wrist these also look very nice on a 24mm nato strap.

In 1875, Joseph Bulova, a 23-year-old immigrant, set up shop in New York City and a legendary American watch brand was born.
Since then, Bulova has stood proudly in the vanguard of timekeeping innovation, committed to the legacy of creativity and excellence established by its founder. A pioneering force in the industry, Bulova transformed how watches were worn and how time was perceived, registering over 50 patents as he and his company built a record of creativity including the first full lines of men's (1919) and ladies' (1924) wristwatches, the first clock/radio (1928) and the first electric clock (1931). To ensure the utmost in precision, in 1920, Bulova even established its own observatory - located atop its New York skyscraper.With that same spirit of innovation, following World War II, determined "to serve those who served us, " Bulova established The Bulova School of Watchmaking, using new and unique methods to train disabled veterans for positions in the watch and jewelry industry. Then, in 1960, Bulova changed timekeeping forever with the revolutionary Accutron, the world's first fully electronic watch.
An integral component of U. Space technology, Accutron timing was used on 46 NASA missions, including Apollo XI, the first lunar landing (1969). Today, as one of the world's most recognized brands, Bulova has expanded across the globe, with four separate watch brands, Bulova, Bulova AccuSwiss, Bulova Accutron II and Caravelle New York, as well as the award-winning Bulova Clocks.
The signature Bulova brand provides an extensive selection of watches for every occasion, crafted of the finest materials, including 315L surgical grade stainless steel, diamonds, mother-of-pearl, carbon fiber, top-quality leather and Bulova's proprietary Duramic nylon/ceramic composite, and powered by Precisionist-class quartz, automatic and quartz movements. An industry leader in diamond watch styling, with the new Diamond Gallery offering exquisite designs in stainless steel with sapphire crystals, Bulova is also known for Precisionist, featuring Bulova's proprietary Precisionist-class quartz torsional resonator movement for accuracy to within seconds per year, the Marine Star collection, combining high-performance sports timekeeping with superior durability and water resistance to a minimum of 100 meters, and a comprehensive selection of classic styles.
