Just received this nice letter from a US
Customer of this watch .... (August 26th, 2004)
Hope that you are doing well. ... (text shortened, Reto) ... One more quick thing; the submariner style Bulova that I bought a few weeks ago is great. I was in a store looking at Rolex Submariners and the sales person thought that I already had a Rolex submarinerˇXI was wearing it. I told her the truth, that it was a Bulova, but she still thought it looked very good.
I guess the fact that the BULOVA WATCH COMPANY is owned by a US Billionaire, makes those Bulova Submariner-style watches more acceptable then other brands, even in Rolex stores :-)

And another letter I received from a customer on Sunday,
September 19th 2004
I've received my Bulova Sub-style and wanted to commend you and the staff on the fine shipping and customer service. I would not hesitate to order again or to recommend your site for purchases. I was wondering again if you could source any information as to when the watch was produced. I would like to know if the watch needs any lubrication/service based on its age. I've contacted Bulova Canada, Bulova USA and the Swiss Bulova operation, and all they could tell me is that the watch is "old" and was manufactured in Europe - not very helpful.
If you are interested in customer/product feed-back, here is my review of this watch over the first few days: The watch has gained anywhere from 11 to 13 seconds - I understand the ETA 2824-2 is a good, reliable movement and am curious to see what it does after a break in period of a few months. The lume on the hour markers is poor, it appears that it has an applied luminous sticker to the indices rather than a bezel filled with luminous matter. The bracelet has ergonomically curved links which fit nicely on the wrist; however, the links, although appearing seamless, are suspiciously light and I question whether they are in fact solid. I find I have to struggle with the screw down crown - not as smooth to operate as my other dive-style watch - a 1970's Zenith Defy. The overall look and feel of the watch is good and I am sure it will serve me well as a "poor man's Submariner".
