Quick Facts:

The first automatic watch for under $500 that I will be reviewing today is the Bulova Men’s Leather Strap Watch. It is made by the recognized brand of Bulova and is imported into North America for discerning buyers. It is an affordable automatic watch and you can buy it from the link above.


The Bulova Men’s Leather Strap Watch comes with a variety of features to meet all your needs for what you want in a watch. These features include:

  • Strap made from real leather
  • Closes with a buckle
  • Measures 40 mm high
  • It is a round circular watch finished in black
  • The dial is also black and the sub-dial is off center and you can see through it
  • The case measures 13.5 mm and it made from stainless steel
  • The dial window is made of mineral
  • There are 21 jewels around the circle that allow movement that is automatic
  • Analog display


  • Beautiful look
  • The black look is classy and striking
  • Nicely built
  • Can illuminate in the dark, works great
  • Very comfortable to wear
  • The face of the watch is large so easy to see


  • Takes some time to break in the leather strap
  • There is no day of the month on the analog display
  • Will stop after a couple of days if just sitting because there is a winding mechanism


The Bulova Men’s Leather Strap Watch is a classy-looking, almost all-black watch that is ideal for any businessman. However, if you purchase this watch, know that you cannot leave it sitting around without using it, or it will stop counting time; this is a watch that must be wound to keep it running. It has an easy-to- see face and the leather strap is comfortable after a period of breaking in.
