I have 3 of these.

Smoothest second hand motion in the world and the accuracy is far better than the Precisionist line from my observation.

Interesting that they call it UHF. Although 262kHz is right speedy for a watch, the UHF radio band begins at 300MHz. When they can tune into radio free Bosco I might get one.

While I'm not a fan of mesh and wish it were on a real bracelet, I love the look of this Accutron II UHF (picture stolen from the Interwebz).

Some of the military styles don't look too bad either:

The divers not so much:

It also looks like they are planning on releasing some of the original "electric" styles with UHF:

This past Saturday I was at our local Macy's and this particular store had three big sales cases of Bulova, including a big sales sign for the UHF stuff. Dorks, you're right on the money with the styling issue on those divers. As for the others, I kinda liked a few, and the prices seemed pretty reasonable. I'm still not warming up to Accutron II though (and yes, there was a case full of "Accu-Swiss" there as well).

Nice.

An exhibition back and decorated works (as best one can with an qwertz) might also be a seller . That smooth second hand certainly is attractive.

Decorated something like this.

Foggy, how is the quality/heft of the mesh bracelet on #2?

Fair to middlin'.

It serves me well for now but I'll prob go aftermarket and a Nato soon.
It's one of those "only mesh on the sides" mesh bands with links close to the clasp.


Watch itself is awesome though.

I really like the new Accutron ll models from Bulova. I've owned the Snorkel ll 96B210 for a couples of weeks now. I could wear it everyday and be happy but my other watches would get jealous. This is a good article explaining the differences between the Precisionist/Accutron movements. Apparently the larger case sizes on the original Precisionist were required to accommodate the larger battery.
