Bulova Diamond Men's and Ladies' Wrist Watch Review

Pragmatic Fashion

Bulova Diamond watches balance fashion forethought with earthly jewelry-inspired pragmatism: clean, sometimes minimalistic, designs supported by diamonds.

It is one of the company's more recognized and popular collections – and also one of its most expensive, since the stones lift the prices by several hundred, and sometimes even thousand (in paved versions) of US dollars. Despite significant design differences, Diamond is similar to Caravelle and Accutron in versatility – both men's and women's segments offer dozens of models.

Among men's pieces, of particular note are the black dial watches that present an interesting blend of Movado and Rado traits: stark contrast of stainless steel gray and diamond white with the dark face. Ladies variations similarly draw from other brands – the high-end Ebel and Jaeger LeCoultre in this case.

Diamond Men's

The offered versatility makes any categorization difficult, and I would again recommend browsing the collection at the official website, or eBay before deciding which watch suits you best. There are, however, some features that leave a distinct mark on each timepiece: the color of the dials (usually black or white), geometrical form (round or rectangular), complications (chronograph, date, or none), and tone (stainless steel, gold plated or toned, black). The element uniting all Men's Diamond watches is the type of sleek, chique, urban fashion awareness that bespeaks modernity.

Diamond Women's

A vast collection that seems to create an intentionally confusing mix of Caravelle Ladies and Accutron Ladies, sometimes – by offering openworked Skeleton models – even borrowing from men's designs. Diamonds become the unifying component, and really define this collection as a separate line of watches. Still, neither of the mentioned departments display such assured modeling and overall confidence of composition; Ebel and Jaeger LeCoultre references elevate Diamonds Women's, while the collection itself appears to redistribute these brands' characteristic in a new, original, Bulova way.
