While this new watch from Bulova
comes in a few colors and styles, I simply had to show you the blue dialed version for a watch called "Curacao." Yes, I know the name refers to a place, not just a blue liquor, but still... Owner Citizen, has been beefing up the dive watch collection from Bulova for a while. We have the Kirkwood and Calypso (among others), and now the Curacao. In steel, the watch is modest in size at 41mm wide an is also available in a rose gold toned version. It has a decent looking rotating diver's bezel, as well as a fun style on the dial. The half ring around the date window is a new experiment on helping to either balance out the dial, or make the date window feel less awkward. The hour markers are applied, and there are a few different textures on the dial. Love that large, purposeful looking seconds hand, and the big crown. Though at only 100 meters water resistant, it is more diver watch style, than dive watch sound.
The watch has a sapphire crystal over the dial as well as over the back of the watch giving a view of the Swiss Sellita SW200 automatic movement (clone of ETA 2824). The rear window is a half circle, with the other half being a Bulova logo. The Curacao comes with a blue or black dial, in polished steel or a rose gold PVD case, and on a metal bracelet, rubber strap, or leather strap. Prices start at about 690 euros. Should be available rather soon.
