Bulova Cream Dial "Surfboard" Chronograph Watch - 98A252 - $499 Delivered @ Starbuy


Hi there everyone!

It's special offer time again!!! - an extra $100 off the listed price by using the above code.

This week it's a fantastic retro vibe we are going with…The Bulova Surfboard - Coke Bezel Version 98A252!

These are stunning retro-looking watches that, in my opinion, are some of the nicest looking retro-watches you can buy!

This release is part of the hugely popular "archive" series that Bulova produces focusing on some of their most iconic designs.

This specific piece is a re-issue from a 70's chronograph they released which was casually referred to as the "Surfboard" due to its unique oval sandwich dial. This modern version has a double domed sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating, 200m water resistance & a rubber strap with a signed butterfly clasp.

I personally love the retro design & colourway!…what do you think?

    That’s quite a nice looking watch. That colourway is so much nicer than the others too

      OP did ask for opinions. It appears at least two people don't believe in freedom of expression. I like it but it's pushing the boundaries just a little too much considering it's quartz.

        I don't like it either, looks a bit too off, and like a cheapest novelty watch.

        Each to their own obviously, when someone writes something it's usually their option.

      • They may not have believed in the lack of a capital letter and a full stop. :D

    • I wouldn’t go that far, but it’s not to my taste.
      To me it looks like it was designed in the 1950s to look like something that would be worn in the future.

    There would be about 1000 nicer watches you could get for that price.

      This oughta be interesting.

        Too many to list. Top 10 AliExpress watches are usually good guides on YouTube and feature reverse types of microbrands.
        Anyway go for it if you like the retro surf theme, just saying $500 isn't that cheap

          So your #1 suggestion is cheap Aliexpress copies of other brands' "nicer" designs?

            @henno: No
            Bulova is one of them but never mind.
            Every watch is a copy of six styles.

            Descriptions in the link, heaps of top 20 of this and that

    I just received my retro micro brand brew watch. Prices have increased but I got mine for $395 usd.
    It’s currently my favourite watch.
