I’ve had my eye on this watch and it seem like a nice retro piece. It has a plastic/acrylic crystal, which I like. And the case diameter is a perfect 40mm. Water resistant to 3om, and quartz-powered. Get it at Amazon with a canvas strap for just over $80 shipped. Or with a black finish and strap for under $110.

worn&wound – Review: Bulova 96A102 Commemorative Hack Watch: “Having worn this watch for several weeks now, I can straight up just say that it is a great and pleasurable watch to wear. As I said in my initial impressions, part of what drew me to this watch was simply the overall value of it. Good brand, great look and a seconds-sub dial (which one does not see often in this price range) for under $100. How can you go wrong? Well, of course the build quality could be mediocre. That’s not the case here; the Bulova is a very nicely built and sturdy watch. Maybe the strap is a piece of garbage? Nope. I love the strap that it came with. It is perfectly styled for the watch, very nicely constructed and extremely comfortable. Umm…maybe it keeps bad time? Once again, no: it is powered by a Japanese quartz (Miyota) and is as reliable as I could ever need. Basically, it all comes down to looks, and I love the way it looks.”
