    Watch: Bulova Gemini Accutron 63c107

    Hey BB, long time no see,

    Im looking at getting a *quality* watch and i was wondering if anyone had an opinion on this watch:

    I played with it for 5 minutes today in a Dunkin Diamonds store and was considering getting it for my birthday (Sept 12th). The lowest the woman offered me was $1,300. This will be my first high-end watch, with my only other real watch being my Citizen Eco-Drive (roughly $500).

    With front and back Sapphire crystals, Swiss movement, a fantastic leather/metal combo band, Patek-Phillipe-esque back winding mechanism, X-amount of jewels in the movement itself, and a nice face, i like it. However i was hoping someone on the forum could comment more upon it, as im not an expert by any means, just a novice watch lover. I dont need a chrono or any other special instrument, i simply need a quality time piece that looks great. Extra functions are just a bonus.


    With love,
    Eric


    PS- Why do they sell these crazy cheap on eBay? How come the lowest "authentic" dealers will go is $1200 while ebay is at $900? Click here to enlarge Not authentic? Bad sapphires?

    It may be an indication they do not hold their value. If so, probably better options.

    Turn's out it was a false eBay add with teh 63C's photo but a description of some Japanese POS....

    Anyway, i think ive decided to redirect these funds towards some BC Coils/VSRF FMIC

    If you're willing to spend ~$1300, there are much better options out there. For example, the Hamilton Jazzmaster automatic chronometer (http://www.amazon.com/Hamilton-H3261...dp/B001F7I0U4/) is a real mid- to high-end watch vs. the lower-tier Bulova.

    And it's available for less than $1000 at the link above.
