Now this is one of the coolest, most inovative watches I've seen come out of Bulova. Very slick, simple, classic look with the technical inclusion of an opening crystal, custom hands and dial for the blind.

Quite simply, one of the most awesome watches I've seen ever. So simple to see yet so complicated to design and engineer, I love it> Great Find!

And yet Shawn, I've always wondered why "Bulova" isn't in BRAILLE, seems like it should be, eh? My son has a blind friend, I picked one up for him a couple years ago, he loves it! Never wears his 'talking' watch any more. I've got the '77 and the '79 models, haven't found a '78 yet if it's out there.
