This is for a BULOVA ACCUTRON MEN'S GEMINI WATCH 65A102 for $299. Use coupon code AFFGEMINI299 for the $299 shipped price (sales tax only in NY). Deal ends April 5, or I suppose until they run out.

OK, admittedly this deal will most likely interest only watch freaks and collectors (like me) who appreciate manual winding movements. This watch is described as employing a SWISS made (not Asian) manual wind 6498-1 movement. The vast majority of watches equipped with this movement use the Asian version of the movement, which can be purchased for ~$40. The genuine Swiss made 6498-1 movement typically sells alone for $300-$400.

If you Google this watch you will see that many sites falsely identify it as an automatic. It is not an automatic; it is a manual wind. If the information I received is correct (I called Ashford and Bulova) it is configured with the real McCoy, a Swiss 6498-1 movement. If for some reason they're both wrong, I may consider returning the watch. But I have no reason to doubt the information I received.

Just got a call from an extremely cordial and well-informed Bulova technician, who confirmed that the movement is, indeed, Swiss made. He explained that their Swiss made labeled watches are entirely made in Switzerland, except for sometimes the band/strap. I don't recall the last time I saw a new name brand wristwatch with a Swiss made 6497 or 6498 movement selling for $300.

Silver dial with bracelet version of the original deal.

AFFGEMI339 for $339 shipped price
Expires April 21.

Same specifications other than the bracelet and dial color, including the Swiss made mechanical hand wind moment. Don't know if I should bother posting this new deal in the hot deal section.
