    I’ve used this watch for about two weeks now. The watch itself seems well made. I would have preferred options of different watch faces such as Railroad or military just for better visibility. Setting the calendar seems a bit kludgy and the cover spring seems a bit weak to me but everything works fine.

    The packaging is overkill and it seems a shame to throw it out. The satisfying thunk it makes when it hits the trash does not offset the cost it likely added to the watch.

    All in all it seems to be a decent pocket watch for everyday use.

    Bought this for my husband. He likes that it was easy to set the time and date. It has the possibility to be engraved but he didn’t want it engraved. The only negative from him was that clip was not big enough for him to easily hook it to a belt loop on his pants. Otherwise, he is very pleased with the watch.

    Awesome time piece with an elegant look and crystal clear dial & numbers, a real heirloom.

    This is a 70th Birthday present, and is my link to passed times. To all that have criticised. This is a Quartz watch that doesn’t need winding, yes it’s battery powered, when the watch stops working, yes, you change the battery. As regards a watch received bearing damage, this is pure fiction, anyone even with half a brain would realise people who write this rubbish, with Bad Grammar and spelling mistakes, really do have serious problems, think about that one. Never mind call the Cracker-Factory. Happy New Year.

    Very good looking watch. Heavy and with nice finish. I think the chain is too heavy and long but doesn’t detract from my opinion. Think I am going to like it. Nice accessory when wearing dress suit. Packaging is over the top.

    Having passed the half-century mark, I figured it was time to get a pocket watch. Nothing too showy…just a solid timepiece. The Bulova 96B270 has turned out to be a great compromise between the cheaper watches that lack quality and the more expensive ones that…well…are too expensive 🙂

    I’ve been carrying it for about three weeks now and can safely say that it keeps exceptionally accurate time. No variation from the time on my cellphone since I first set it. I haven’t had to fiddle with it once! The watch also looks fantastic. The etched Bulova tuning fork on the cover is simple yet classy. The brushed steel back is perfect for engraving (as is the inside of the cover, I suppose). The cover opens with authority and closes securely. The large Arabic numerals are easy to read, and look great against the simple watch face background. Even the weight is perfect. Just enough to feel solid without being unwieldy. I’m pleased to have a synthetic sapphire dial window rather than the plastic on most other models in this price range and lower. I confidently expect that it will resist scratches, giving the piece a much longer usable lifespan.

    I really only have two quibbles. Firstly, the item description mentions the “shiny sunray silver tone dial with silver tone luminous hands”. I’m not sure what the marketeers at Bulova think of when they say “luminous” but I can tell you that the hands (and the rest of the watch face for that matter) are invisible in low light conditions. If you imagine that you can read the time from the position of the gently glowing hands in the dark…forget it! Second is the chain. Make no mistake. It is solid and obviously of good quality. My problem is that it has a tendency to snarl up on itself after a day of getting up and sitting down repeatedly. The links accordion together and it is, frankly, a “female dog” to get them unsnarled. As I age and my hands become gnarled with rheumatism, this will definitely become an issue. Still…this is no reason to run down a really fine timepiece (did you see what I did there?). If I could have given it 4.5 stars out of 5, I would have. Highly recommended balance between price and quality, sure to satisfy.

    I love it, it’s big, it’s heavy, it’s beautifully crafted, and it it’s still right on the second. Best watch investment I have made in many many many years. If you are looking for a good pocket watch this is the one to get.

    WOW, this watch is VERY NICE! I can’t believe Amazon is selling it for half of the price I was able to find any where else! It’s high quality, good weight, and Very Classy. I gave this to my husband as an anniversary present and we both loved it. I would definitely recommend it! And I have no doubt it will withstand time and my husband will be able to pass it down to our son one day. Timeless.

    Product arrived with Bulova Hard Case box scratched, stained, and dirty. Upon opening the lid of the box I also found scratches. Pocket watch itself was in new condition besides the back of watch where it seems the clear plastic coating sticker was reapplied constantly with lint and dirty under one edge.

    For a purchase of a NEW Bulova Men’s pocket watch totaled $200 I did not expect a watch and case that seemed like it was a show piece with obvious cosmetic damage.

    I ordered a cheaper pocket watch at the same time that didn’t wind (evidently has a battery) and didn’t keep the time. This one does wind and ran for over a week consistently on the first winding. The design, coloring and price are good, and it actually keeps time very well.

    Unfortunately, after two weeks of wearing it daily, the anchor attached to the watch around the winding pin gave out, and the chain fell off, and despite trying to press it back on with a pair of bolt pliers, it kept falling off. I have no choice but to return it. If this thing was, in fact, made in China, as the FAQ section suggests, IT’S NOT WORTH THE SHIPPING TARIFFS OR COSTS THAT IT TOOK TO GET IT TO AMERICA. It looked and acted like a quality pocket watch for a couple of weeks. Then it fell apart like it should have costed one tenth the price, or less.
