It's a sharp watch. It's got Bulova's high frequency Accutron II chronograph movement. The running seconds (at 6 o'clock) ticks at two ticks per second, which is kind of cool. The fractional seconds subdial runs for the first thirty seconds that the chronograph runs (spinning fast), and then stops to conserve battery. But when you stop the chronograph, the fractional sections subdial will move to show the fractional seconds when you stopped (even if it's after the first 30 seconds). Beautiful mix of brushed and polished surfaces; signed crown; nice dial details, including applied indices and the "Tuning fork" logo at 12 and as the counterweight to the chrono seconds hand; cool, bright yellow color on the internal rotatable bezel and on the chrono seconds hand.

Even though it's 44m width, it's got a short lug-to-lug (the specs say 42mm, but I'm going to say that it's more like 46), which makes it easily wearable on a variety of wrists.

The condition is very good. There are desk diving scratches on the brushed portions of last few links of the bracelet, and a couple of very light scratches on the side of the case. But it's sold as-is; please look at the photos and ask any questions you might have.

I purchased this from amazon just a couple of months ago. I think it's covered by the Asurian warranty, but I can't promise that (nor can I promise that the warranty is transferrable). The watch comes with the original box and papers, and 5 (!) extra links. The watch is currently sized for my ~ 7" wrist, with both of the half-links installed.

I'm asking $135 shipped via USPS Priority Mail and payment through PayPal in the U.S., or $130 if you don't want the box. I think this is a pretty decent price, so I'm not really interested in listening to lower offers at this time. Feel free to PM me with questions or to buy!

Thanks for looking!
