Found 24th Jul 2017
Have been looking for a new watch for my son, something not too expensive & not plastic looking, came across this Bulova 96A174 Mens Blue Dial Sports Watch on offer at Argos for £57,99, which considering the same watch is £95 at Amazon, I thought was decent in itself, but then found a code on their site JEWEL25 that takes an extra 25% off £40 spend on Selected Jewellery & Watches making it £43.49.
The code seems to work on clearance items too & if you spend over £50 / £100 after the discount, you will receive the £5 / £10 voucher back too.
I would not have considered Bulova until blackrat62 mentioned in a deal he posted a few weeks ago that they were owned by Citizen watches, which I know my husband & quite a few other people really rate.

the promo code box is only seen on the 'Pay Now' option and not on the 'Pay In Store' option.
Do these watches hold their value?
Bulova is an excellent brand, and being owned by Citizen it a reason I've considered them in the past. This is a brilliant deal imo. Hot!
Sports Chrono? Far too dressy, with the Roman numberals, if you ask me.
I would wear this watch on a date with Susanna reid

LOUGHBORO.GUY I very much doubt that she would give an oik like you the time of day
people when did Bulova stop being an expensive brand?
Good spot. Seems to be closer to £100 elsewhere.
Watches 2 u on eBay sells them on auction and they finish about £60 so good spot. He has loads on auction and with nearly 200,000 feedback I would trust him

The Bulova of old are not the Bulova of new. Remember, these are just brand names, and often investors buy up dead brand names and produce products that are nowhere near the standard of the old brand.
This is a good deal if you can get your hands in one. I ordered one and drove about 20 mile to pick it up, only to descover it was a used return. Really peed off!
Good deal
mr_hercules many thanks

Unfortunately so very true. Just look at what's happened to Rotary, Polaroid, Dunlop, Toshiba, Grundig, Kodak etc etc.

I don't know what say guys!? I've gone and bought one of these and on closer inspection it feels exactly like the 2 watches my son bought for around £10. The weight and feel of it is almost identical to the £7 watch with the bracelet. The movement, when you adjust the watch feels the same as both of them. I haven't tried opening the watch but I feel pretty confident in saying this, the movement in this watch is the same as in the £7 and £1.99 watches.
If anyone has this watch, the tools, the know-how and the willingness to open it up, Please let us know what you find?

Glycine as well. Taken over by Invicta recently if I remember rightly.

I would certainly bet that it's the same movement (like for like, or chrono for chrono). Looks like standard market price for this is about £100 and for that price you'd be lucky to get a Swiss quartz movement for example, like a Ronda.

Just send the watch back if you're not happy mate. Save your money, add say £20 a month to it, and get a decent watch when you're ready. In the meantime if you really need a watch, just get a cheap but decent Casio or a Seiko.

By the way, I have a bulova chrono dress watch and it's actually decent quality even if I don't ever wear it.
