Bulova Harley Davidson Wrist Watch Review
Bulova Harley Davidson motorcycle inspired collection combines aesthetic elements from both brands, amalgamating them into graceful and visually powerful designs. The companies collaborated to create timepieces that would both satisfy and converge their respective characteristics. Watches are manufactured for both men and women, correctly reflecting the gender diverse motorcycle culture, and feature the original Harley Davidson logo on the dial.
The line includes five collections: Bangle, Bracelet, FOB, Pocket, and Strap. The first two essentially provide a different take on Caravelle Bracelet: similarly bold, experimental approach, but with a clear aerodynamic, and slightly Gothic bias – sharper angles and appropriate flaming ornament. FOB and Pocket provide an alternative for wrist wearing, while Strap fills the sports niche. Let's examine these more closely:
In this exclusively Ladies line Bulova echo Caravelle bracelet variety, the one in Crystal collection to be precise. But if the latter offered more elegance to offset the vibrancy of Bracelet with some formal touches, Bangle opts for folksy expressive modifications, incorporating color – usually fiery orange – on the bands or the dials.
A line that runs through most Bulova
departments here becomes a playground for muscular sports designs in
the men's models and Gothic ones in women's. The latter focus on
fashion, presenting edgy cases and black&gray color scheme.
Gents' pieces incorporate thick bezels and employ the Harley Davidson
logo as a decorative tool, sometimes spreading it on the entire dial.
FOB and Pocket
Each offering only one watch, these two answer to the needs of riders whose hands are busy holding the handle bar. Note the chique value of reading time in an old fashioned manner.
Strap collection continues to elaborate on dial compositions using the same elements of orange color, flame motifs, and HD logo – all with a classic touch bestowed by the straps. Made for men and women, some of the watches include a chronograph complication.
