When it comes to dive watches, cushion case shapes are quite suitable. Bulova 98B320 relates more to modern trends with a 44mm diameter cushion case. This watch has a more modernized stainless steel bracelet with moderately round links and double-press fold-over buckles. The size is a bit larger than the other versions, but its curvy case fits comfortably around the wrist.
Also true-to-its-ancestors, the unidirectional bezel is red for the first quarter and, the rest is black. The coin-edged crown has a label of Bulova name on top. This special edition features an easy-to-grip screw down crown in the 3 'o clock spot.
The special edition is an ideal reproduction of the vintage original. The matte-black dial has a less prominent, red crosshair on its center and a date window with magnifying crystal at 3 ‘o clock. The pearly white hour markers make this piece noteworthy and stand out impressively on the black dial. The dial has swords hands with white frame and luminescent paint inside and a second hand that moves with a small glowing pip on its end.
Bulova 98B320 features a wordier dial with Bulova logo and Oceanographer at 12-hour position. Down at 6 'o clock is the famous 660 feet water resistance rating printed underneath automatic and snorkel. Because of this rating, the oceanographer is commonly called Devil Diver. Sapphire crystal with blue anti-reflective cover completes the water-resistant package and guards the movement inside.
The reissued Oceanographer Devil Diver comes with a Japanese automatic movement which is possibly the Miyota caliber, helping to bring the cost down. The Miyota movement is quite reliable and, one could expect good timekeeping. As a 40-hour power reserve, Miyota runs at 21,600 BPH.
