Bulova’s Bangle collection offers various styles of ladies timepieces that are some sort of fashion accessories with additional timekeeping functions. These discrete analog wristwatches with bangle-styled bracelets display Bulova’s view on current fashion trends. All of them include Japanese quartz movements. Its wearers will be able only to keep track of time, because no other functions (not even a date indication) are included. Only few models possess sweeping second hands.
Despite its horological simplicity, the series that includes 15 different models does offer a lot of diversity which is displayed through the design of these wristwatches. Simple quartz movements, mineral crystals, as well as cases and bangle bracelets made from stainless steel are common for all models. However, wristwatches from the series can include round, oval, square or rectangular shapes of cases. The bracelets are constructed in one of 12 different designs.
Besides, the diversity is found in the design of the dials which can include either bar-shaped or dot-shaped hour markers, complemented with Roman or Arabic numerals in some cases. Available colors for the dials are silver, black or mother-of-pearl. These dials are combined with completely silver, silver and gold or (in one case) black and silver cases and bracelets. Each of the models offers some sort of water resistance, reaching from minimal moisture resistance to 30 meters. Watches from the collection cost between $175 and $300.
