You too! Enjoy what is coming. It'll be worth the wait!
We with this fetish have to talk in tongues on HUKD nowadays anyway as there's always someone waiting in the wings to have a moan. All the best to you and your collection.
that's the problem nowadays.... The Hypebeast is everywhere.... I always buy a watch because I like it and never as an investment. It sometimes occurs that the watch I covet is also a Hypebeast item but I will never pay premium for a current model watch, those who do, are just lemmings who want to look flash, at height of the Hype. Hopefully my RootBeer will come in before the end of the year and for me its what I want... Although I could of had a Pepsi for the same allocation, its not my cup of tea. I guess a lot of non-watchies are thinking, what the hell he on about! :/ :D
It's big enough (y) just the availability and waiting is a bugger. Pelagos and bronze look interesting.
Depending on the size of your wrist, a Black Bay is not thick. It wears very well..... I have a black shield and a Pelagos. :)
Probably good quality, but the dial makes me dizzy just looking at it!
I think it is great how watches divide opinion and have to admit, my favourite watch right now is supremely “boring” and was one of the best (IMHO) watch deals on HUKD in recent times. I like it so much that if I can I will break with tradition and get the leather strap version as a dress watch. https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/seiko-ska707p9-mens-kinetic-stainless-steel-watch-6999-argos-ebay-2738944 In contrast I also bought the EQB-501 JL deal from approx two weeks ago for a bit of variety, but simplicity always wins for me.
I think it became rather a marketing exercise. I can imagine pressurizing and depressurized a watch if they were actually worn on the moon must have placed quite a strain on the watches. I haven't looked into it in detail. Of course some still believe they didn't go anyway :)
It's fine to disagree! I think I just prefer the Lunar Pilot, since it reminds me of a Speedmaster Moon Watch, which I'd love to own, but can't justify buying.
I disagree. The Lunar Pilot is boring! Just a plain black and white design. This has four extra dials and more features! OK the lunar pilot is a copy of their moon watch, but as a watch IMO it's much less interesting
Yes, it is a Citizen brand and I would keep away from them. Mine stopped working after 8 months and they have refused to fix it free of charge. Apart from EE they have the worse customer service team.
A great looking watch at a good price, but I don't think it uses the precision isn't movement. So as a close alternative in terms of functionality (not water resistance) I could recommend this: Here. Or This. It is reasonably similar in function but a tiny bit cheaper (£15-25) and is UHF, which means you get a smooth second hand and better time keeping. These are more military/flieger than dressy dive so not an exact comparison. I like the look of all, but they are a smidge on the big side for me.
Bulova? Is it similar in brand value like the Citizen Eco Drives
Last week I bought a watch from Samuels with the ten per cent code. Also went through TCB for a little bit extra back, it tracked OK even with using a discount code.
Is the watch on sale a 70s classic?
I was being sarcastic, obviously.
The original Accutron space watch and the original moon watch are classics!
Maybe some of the mainstream modern watches are bulky and a little garish but Bulova have a rich watch history and have made some classics
In all fairness, I'm pretty biased, since I think that even the Woody looks amazing with all it's kitsch gold and wood strap!
£269.10 or am I missing something? Tried one on today and keen to buy but that £225 deal might appear again soon :/
Yup, I also got the same deal (y) . Thought this was sill good value as they still go for 250-to over 300 used BUT just seen peter’s heads up about Ernest Jones, even better! 😁
Woah, that is awesome. Great find (y)
You can also get this for £261.10 from Earnest Jones if you sign on to the emails. http://www.ernestjones.co.uk/webstore/d/8087857/bulova+lunar+pilot+chronograph+men's+black+strap+watch/
Same price in H Samuel if you sign up to their newsletter and get 10% off. Was only £225 from them in March, I bought it then. https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/50-off-bulova-black-98a186-special-edition-lunar-pilot-chronograph-watch-250-delivered-at-h-samuel-2917130
Bingo, on ebay I wonder where he bought it? Ps there was a chappel 10% discount code making it £179 https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https://www.ebay.co.uk/ulk/itm/332686793735
Back in Stock! thanks steve_b_333, just be patient with the Chapelle site! can be twitchy
Any care to share some photos?
Back in stock
soon to appear on eBay for £300 plus I suspect.
Out of stock. But found for a similar price here: https://www.chapelle.co.uk/mens-bulova-dress-black-leather-strap-watch-96b283-80200013?
Thanks, makes the price even better (highfive)
Code “aff5” to bring it to £52.24
Nice for the price
Bargain mate (y) heat
I have this watch and it's a really nice time piece. Got mine from Argos for £39.99 through HUKD last year, it looks smart and is ideal to wear for formal or everyday use.
Not to my taste, but I’ll second Bulova as a quality watchmaker, better than parent company Citizen imo!
Bull ova priced rrp, cold for me on that.
Bulova make really nice watches. On par with Rotary and the prices like this one are generally affordable.
Generally £79 anyway.
Same here, that's the first time i've had a refund due to import fees
I actually received an 80p refund from Amazon as they had overcharged me on the tax.
I also ordered a watch from Amazon US last month and I was not charged any extra tax (y)
Hi mate. I bought this watch last month from H Samuel (the new black version) but all boxes and papers are the same. The first one that was delivered to me was also missing paperwork and it wasn’t in the correct box. The correct box is one mikeyfive has. It should also come with a plastic credit card size warranty card, instruction manual and also a small book about the Lunar mission. Luckily they managed to get hold of another one so I was able to swap it. Amazon will sort it for you mate. Did it come with tags on and a yellow clip around the crown?
Mine came in a box like that shown above with all materials as far as i can tell
My watch is a dupe of the ubiquitous ladies' Michael Kors watches :) and I was referring to the colours of the dial/numbers/hands being the same - rendering it unreadable in low light - not about the style of my Caravelle watch. The same issue will more than likely also affect this Bulova watch. Only on HUKD would you attract a comment that misses the point, and also includes a veiled insult (skeptical)
It sounds like a design fault as I can't imagine anyone wanting to wear that watch in daylight, bright or otherwise.
Tremendous watch, tremendous price.
I have this too and it came from Watches2U. I found it cheaper at Argos a few days later but Watches2U weren't interested in refunding the difference and wanted £6 if I was to return my watch to them for a refund.
8 times oscillating frequency means 8 times greater battery drain. That's why Seiko came up with the Spring Drive
I can’t believe this is only on 50c! Just to let you know lazyfatboy, I have ordered the watch! £230 absolute steal. I realised after that I would have saved another £5 if I had signed up to their newsletter, rather than use the £20 code, as you get 10% off first purchase. So that works out at £225 but thank you! I’ve been looking at buying this watch for some time now (y)
This is a great price. These are going for £250 plus on eBay, used.
Owned by Citizen which is a good thing. Great watch at a superb saving. Have some heat (should be hotter by now).
Bulova do some cracking watches.
Similar here with the bracelet and some wait time- https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B01FSM4SMU?tag=hotukdeals062-21
Has anyone received their watch? I got mine yesterday and it's gorgeous. Checked my account and I was charged £289 too.
Oos and full price now will they despatch...
Mines delayed until mid April
Have you, has anybody, recieved their order? I was set to have mine delivered today, but at the 11th hour, they said it eta unknown/OOS.
It's not a IV it's a IX half cropped by the chronograph. What worries me more is that everything on this watch is silver. I already struggle to read the time on the image, I can't imagine how it's like on a sunny day.
Would you rather not have a tag heuer carrera on sale? Or a BREITLING?
It's a design point. The type font has to stay the same size. The Chrono dial is in front. It is deliberate and a common design approach... Hence X looks like like a v I don't like this watch. Rose gold marine star is way better (got one) and the lunar watch
Lol the X is half cut, so looks like a V..
Me too (highfive)
If it is discontinued used prices should rise.
Ordered last night, whilst half asleep in bed. Another shop cancelled my order and amazon removed it from their site. Supplier had been taking weeks. Apparently it's discontinued Here's hoping Jura don't cancel on me too
I hope you get it as a gift or can afford one soon.
Quartz watch cold for me
If you wear 2 can you go to 600m?
I really like this design and decided to order two from the Argos Outlet. Unfortunately, both the watches were anything but new with tags, they were both marked 'opened and inspected' one had no seal on the back, the other had a seal but was marked exp. 03/17 (presumably for the battery) and was scratched on the back cover. Neither had tags. The chronograph reset button on one of the watches didn't work either. Pretty poor all round, tbh. Returned them both.
£70 to replace a battery and seal not sure where your going but a battery and seal change for my Omega Seamaster with a pressure test is only £35 from a qualified Horologist and you can go cheaper if you choose somewhere like Timpsons. And btw the ebay post says 'Water Resistance Rating:Not Water Resistant' on the item specifics - Ha Ha
I think true divers watches normally are.
Nope, this has sapphire crystal, AR coated nonetheless!
Did you have the crown screwed down?
The bath must of been 301 metre's deep!
Not that great a diving watch,mine leaked whilst in bathtub,although the bathtub was very deep.cold from me
To be fair, it's going to be highly readable and that 262hz movement is incredibly accurate, probably to a few seconds per year. It's a chronograph and a diver ... a tool watch not a dress watch. A lot of watch for the money.
You can get a lesser known brand with a swiss movement for this price range I'm sure. Nice looking watch thou
Great price for this. I just can't bring myself to buy a quartz
Good watch but the only bad point is the seconds hand its not on the main base if ur gonna have a precisionist movement then have ur seconds hand large and in the center or else it no point in buying it
