"Ashford offers the Bulova Men's Precisionist Stainless Steel Watch in Silver, model no. 96B129, for $175. Coupon code "AFFPRECIS99" cut it to $99. With free shipping, that's $28 under our September mention and the lowest total price we could find by $98. It features a stainless steel band and case, Japanese quartz movement, date display, and water resistance to 100 feet."
The identical watch was recently offered with a leather strap for $89. Bulova generally puts great bracelets on their watches, so in my opinion this is the better deal of the two.
The Precisionist line by Bulova is new and Bulova claims an accuracy of 10 seconds per year. The movement on this watch is identical to the other, more expensive, Precisionist models. I'm not a quartz watch enthusiast, but I do occasionally buy one if I think it's a good watch for the money. This is definitely a very good watch for the money.
One of the features I love about the Precisionist line is the bracelets are very long. I have a large wrist and need a long bracelet. Chances are you will have to remove links to make this watch fit. It's not a big deal, but is something to be aware of.

"Temporarily out of stock."
Received mine today. Perhaps the nicest $99 watch (new) I've bought in years, assuming it's even one-third as accurate as Bulova promises. Also has the longest bracelet. Out of the box it's long enough to fit a 9.5 inch wrist. However, the links are secured with screws, so removing them should not be difficult. All in all a great value.
The same watch except with gold accents is now available via the same vendor, Ashford, for the same price, using the same coupon code. This one is dressier than the other one. May have to get it, too. If I had to choose between the two, it would be tough. I bought the watch described in the original post and over a nine day period it's accuracy is absolutely perfect. If it's lost/gained any time at all over the nine days it's literally a small fraction of a second.
I considered posting a new topic for this, but based on the lack of interest in the original deal, I decided not to. But if anyone else wants to post the watch in a new topic, feel free.
