The Precisionist collection of Bulova watches presents timekeepers made with extremely accurate three-prong quartz modules that vibrate at the frequency of 262.144 KHz and provide punctuality within ten seconds per year. However, the series is not completely concentrated on the technical aspect. In fact, it also offers extremely stylish ladies’ timekeepers with distinctive and eye-catching swirl-patterned bezels that give these watches an original note. The graceful timekeepers are mostly in the price range of between $500 and $750, but there is the most lavish version that costs $2,000. These watches by the U.S. brand include different diamond decorations which can be on its distinctive bezel, on the dial, or on both of them.
Bulova Precisionist Brightwater timekeepers are fitted inside round stainless steel cases, with the diameters of 31 mm and thicknesses of 11 mm. The housing can include different finishes, such as polished, or with one or two tone ion-plating in the color of gold. Depending on the version, they may or may not include 20 diamonds on the bezel and eight more that serve as hour markers on the exceptionally beautiful dial with a central silver-white segment with a swirl-patter motif, surrounded by a white mother-of-pearl outer part. Each of these watches has a domed metalized mineral crystal on its front and the engravings of the Precisionist logo on the case back.
Besides, every single one of the versions is equipped with the same type of quartz movement. It is Precisionist caliber P102.10 (with the width of 12 ½ lignes) that beats at the record high frequency: twice as higher than on a regular quartz module. Such high rate allows this watch to have a second hand that moves 16 times every second, thus making it a timekeeper with the most fluid sweeping second hand that even surpasses the ones on the mechanical watches.
The choice of attachments for the swirly-stylish pieces from the Presisionist Brightwater lineage includes brown and black leather bands or steel bracelets with finishes that match the ones on the cases. The universal trait of all of the six versions of the model is constructed in a manner to guarantee water resistance to 30 meters. This will recommend a watch as a beach accessory, considering that the lowest possible pressure resistance of 3 ATM only guarantees basic protection from splashes.
The first version of Bulova Brighwater watch is the 96R153 with 20 hand-set diamonds on its recognizable bezel. It has a seven-link metal bracelet and costs $650. The next variation 96P125 is fairly similar. However, it does not include diamonds on the whirling bezel, but does have eight hand-set diamonds that serve as hour markers on a silver-white and mother-of pearl layered face. It has the same type of wristlet as the first one, but costs $550. The third version of the Bulova Precisionist model has the reference number 98R153 and can be rated as a highly successful and beautiful timepiece. The watch features rose gold toned accents on the bezel, bracelet and dial. You will need to pay $750 to become the owner of this lovely two-tone ladies’ timekeeper.
Furthermore, the next two variations are paired with leather straps. The model 96P124 features diamonds on the dial and a black leather strap, as well as the lowest price of $500. Unlike the first one, the other version 98R152 that costs $650 has a brown leather strap and a steel case completely covered with rose-gold tone ion-plated finish. The coating is also present on its sparkly bezel with decorative precious stones, as well as on the dial (specifically on the hour markers, hands and minute scale).
At the end, we present you the most luxurious variation, the Bulova Precisionist Brightwater Swirled Bezel Watch 96R154. It is the most ornate of all the six versions and is distinctive by the abundance of shiny decorations. With diamonds on the bezel, on hour marker places, and the central segment of the dial being totally paved with gem stones, the total figure of sparkly stones used to beautify this timekeeper equals to 219. Unsurprisingly, this is the previously mentioned timepiece with the highest price of $2,000.
