Just got a Bulova MIL-SHIPS!

This is a watch I have been wanting ever since I first saw it in person. I just graduated with my AA degree and as a graduation present my dad offered to buy it for me (it was also on a massive sale for only $315). I couldn't be happier with it!

If I were to find one thing I would change, the lume is definitely not that great on this watch. I actually like the 16mm lug width. It looks weird in photos but looks great in person (I'm also used to wearing watches with 18mm lug widths so 16mm was less jarring to me compared to others who are used to 20mm).

I think the stock strap fits this watch really well. I did also order a NOS Vietnam-era 16mm strap for it which I might use with this watch sometimes.

Congrats! A really nice watch.

Congrats very nice watch,I'm a fan of exposed lugs

awesome, is it automatic?

It is! It uses a Miyota 82S0. It would be nice if they put a 9000-series in it, but at the discounted price, it was fine. Definitely not worth its MSRP tho.

Are you referring to drilled lugs? If so, I agree.

Very nice piece, way more value in it Than the Swiss Made version. Congrats on your degree!

VERY NICE!! Where did you find it so cheap at?

Congrats on the pickup! I came somewhat close to grabbing one that I saw on a recent cruise, but decided to hold off.
