Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great watch for the price! This is the third Bulova I own. If you want to own a piece of the United States' space program history, this is the watch to buy. In addition to its historical importance, the watch is surprisingly good. As opposed to other Bulova's in this price point, the Moonwalk watch has a sapphire crystal, which is extremely scratch resistant. This watch uses a quartz movement, not a mechanical like the original it is based on. In this case, that it uses Bulova's "Precisionist" aka UHF (Ultra High Frequency) 262 movement. Basically, all it means is the quartz inside the watch vibrates or oscillates at a higher rate of speed to increase accuracy. Bulova claims this movement will only lose or gain 10 seconds in the course of a year. That is impressive when you consider that a normal quartz movement is around +/- 5 seconds a month and a mechanical watch can range anywhere from +/- 2 to 20 seconds per day. The Moonwalk watch is very sturdy, heavy and well finished, coming in a handsome presentation box. The watch is only rated to be water resistant to 50 meters, so be aware of that. The reason? There is no water on the moon, of course. It includes a leather strap and a velcro strap like the astronauts would have worn. There is a tool included to change straps, but I have not yet found a need to change mine. In general, this is an excellent watch at a great price point. However, if you can get it on sale, it is even a better deal.
