Personally, I have never been a big fan of watches with a square face, but this one has got to be the exception. This sylish Bulova Men’s 98B103 Marine Star Calendar Watch boasts a quality Japanese-quartz movement, mineral crystal face and water resistance of up to 330 feet (100 m). It also comes with a perforated black leather strap that makes this watch look and feel distinct.

On the outside, the Bulova Men’s 98B103 Marine Star Calendar Watch has a rose gold tone stainless steel case and a fixed stainless steel bezel. On the inside, it has a black dial with luminous hands which really gives it a classy and expensive-looking feel. As you can see from the pictures, the watch has stick hour markers in five-minute increments, three subdials – displaying 60 seconds, 60 minutes and 24 hours, and a date window at the four o’clock position. It was also designed to have the Bulova logo at the twelve o’clock position to really enhance the beauty and the exclusive look of this fine timepiece.

On the other hand, as it comes with a mineral crystal dial window, you have to be careful not to bump it into other objects, or you could leave it with a scratch, which has happened to other customers who bought this from Amazon. On the other hand, if you are someone who uses chronograph a lot, you may have to give this watch a pass as some users find it hard to operate the chronograph because of the force required to push the buttons.

You can see some of the images of the watch below:

“This watch has a lot of detail on the face. It is a nice large size. A lighter rose gold in color very unique.”

Beautiful going out watch. I bought this for my husband as a xmas present. He absolutely loves it. Thanks Bulova

“I like the look, size, and shape of the watch most. I was a little disappointed by the band length and the force it took to activate the chronograph, but that appears to be by design.”
