The Ultimate Guide to High Accuracy Quartz Watches

Written by Logan R. Baker

Walk into any horological meetup with a quartz watch on and you’re likely to get the door slammed in your face. I kid, I kid — but only partly. Ever since the mechanical watch industry made its recovery in the face of a specific doom brought on by Japanese watchmakers, many so-called watch enthusiasts (snobs might be the more appropriate nom de guerre) have outright refused to let a battery-operated watch end up on their wrists. Is that fair? Depends — of course anybody that calls themselves a timepiece enthusiast most likely fell in love with mechanical watches, but that doesn’t necessarily mean quartz watches should be left out in the cold.

I chose a couple Bulova’s with the UHF, but they were too big. This one seems to fit decent and it has the movement I wanted. Cheap too.
I love the hidden crown and the coffin link bracelet.

Got the blue dial, leather strap version myself.
Wear it often, although the strap was too long and I swapped it out for a navy blue silicon
