bulova curv review

Bulova has a long history of firsts and innovations, including the first curved chronograph watch movement launched in its CURV collection two years ago. The curved design is both beautiful and ergonomic, allowing the watch to naturally follow the contours of the wrist. While other brands have tried to make curved watches, they often fall short due to a lack of accuracy and a bulky appearance. The Curv’s curved case and high-frequency quartz movements allow it to compete with the best of them.

The watch itself is a five-hand chronograph available in titanium and stainless steel case sizes. It also features a skeleton dial, precisionist movement, and anti-reflective sapphire glass. This makes the watch both unique and stylish, but it’s also quite expensive. However, if you’re an avid watch collector who is looking for a distinctive timepiece that will stand out from the crowd, then this is definitely worth considering.

The movement itself vibrates at 262 kHz, which is quite fast. This ensures that the watch is very accurate, as well as durable. The watch’s case is crafted from either titanium or stainless steel and has a sapphire crystal that’s both anti-reflective and curved. The watch is water-resistant to 100 feet (30 meters), which is enough for everyday splashes, but not swimming or snorkeling.

The watch comes in a variety of colorways, from gunmetal to rose gold tones. It also has a selection of straps and bracelets, as well as case materials. There are even versions that feature a display caseback, which is very rare on quartz movements. The curved design of the watch is an impressive achievement, but it’s important to note that it’s still a relatively large watch at 44 millimeters wide and with lug-to-lug lengths of 50 millimeters. This might not be the right fit for some people, especially if they are small or don’t like big watches.
