Watch of the day (WOTD)

What's my wrist-wear choice for today?

My Flavor Of The Day

Bulova, Lunar Pilot, Special Edition

Saturday, brings about another opportunity to wear one of the most rock-solid pieces within my collection, in the Bulova, Lunar Pilot - Special Edition. This timepiece may have the best dial presentation of any timepiece within my collection, facilitated by the stark contrast of white index markers and hands against a Matte Black dial.

I love that Bulova made the Lunar Pilot in a robust case diameter of 46mm. This may put-off some collectors who feel that 46mm is a bit too large, but for me personally, it falls within my sweet spot of 43mm - 46mm, and has great presence on the wrist.

I recently decided to switch-out the leather band on this piece, for the "Special Edition", NATO strap that was included, and man, does it change the personality of the watch. Not only does it give the watch a more tactical and utilitarian look, but the strap is ultra-comfortable, with the velcro enclosure, ensuring a snug, secure fit on the wrist.

Accessorizing the Lunar Pilot today, with an Averitas, Time Saver, leather bracelet, which offers the perfect complement to the NATO strap, and matte Black dial, and with a magnetic clasp, perfectly matched to the frosted, bead-blasted case.
