Default Incoming: Bulova "moon watch"

I puled the trigger on a Bulova moon watch after quite the fiasco with a Omega speed-master... that will have wait for another discussion. But for now i'm waiting for my moon watch (Bracelet version) to arrive! It's my first Bulova since the late 70's.

You picked a good one. Several have bought the moon watch and are very happy with them.

Default Finally arrived!

I am quite pleased so far! its a touch larger than i thought but not to big. It has some nice weight to it but wears very comfortable. The pushers are very nice and don't hook on everything. Will be switching out the bracelet for a mesh or leather soon but I've heard its hard to add an after market strap on one of the versions of this? We shall see! on to the pics.
(FYI the second hand is lined up perfect just the angle of the pic makes it look off.)

Top notch! Understated class. Have you considered the Velcro (NASA replica) strap that comes with the special edition? That should compliment the watch like no other strap.
