Has anyone by chance seen Bulova’s Precisionist X Collection?

There are three watches that help to celebrate 10 years of the
Precisionist. Including a gray stainless steel case model with
18 karat gold top ring, a rose-gold stainless steel case version,
with Damascus steel top ring, or a black stainless steel case
variation with Damascus steel top ring. With all of the models
looking to have 44.5mm case sizes, AR coated curved sapphire
crystals, eye-catching dials with sleek hands, and markers, and
sub-dials, nice straps, along with proprietary Precisionist eight
hand high performance chronograph quartz movement.

Just a few pics...









W&W, and Bulova with a lot more information...

Dial is too busy for me. They forget to mention that the movement they call the Precisionist now is not the one they started out with. I've had both. The original was easier on the battery, more accurate and came in styles that didn't look like G-shock's. I had a few 3 handers that were very stylish. Used to love watching that smooth second hand go roundy round.😊

I like them, @AtomicTom!
I enjoy the untraditional look.
But seems a bit pricey, have to hope it will come down nicely in time.

See, that is what it is all about guys. (y) (y)

All of us seeing the same watch, or watches in different ways. 😉
Forza, I didn’t even realize these didn’t have that cool sweeping
seconds hand to be honest. I should have figured that out, and
they are a bit busy, you are right. However, it seems that they
wanted to push the limits, and do something different, as well
as untraditional like w4tchi said. 🙂

So, the both of you are right !! 😀😀 Can’t thank you guys
enough for your thoughts here on these !!!

Unsurprisingly, I'm not very fond of designs like these but to each his own. Very busy dial and a lot of clues from existing watches. But I also realise that it must becoming increasingly more difficult to bring something new to the watch table. The younger guys in my team don't wear watches at all, they use their smart phone for that. So I wonder what audience they want to cater for?

They are a little wild Frans, and then are very different from the
Precisionist watches we are used to. 😉 But think you are really
on to something with the trying to appeal to new, and, or young
people. 🙂(y) It’s something they have to always have in mind.
Not to mention, trying to hold on to their loyal fans. Who may be
looking for something special to celebrate the anniversary.

I guess they are trying to cater to everyone sir. 🙂

Really appreciate your thoughts on these ! Thanks so much !!!
