Rue La La: Bulova Accutron “Amerigo” Watches – $279.99 – $289.00 ($950)
Swiss made, automatic movement, some interesting styling elements, 41mm, a domed sapphire crystal, and marked way down via the flash sale site Rue La La.
Those lugs though. Shades of the Grumman X-29.
Available with a black dial/black leather strap, white dial/stainless steel bracelet, & black dial/stainless steel bracelet. The white dial/brown leather has sold out.
A little freaky with that flare. Especially on the metal bracelet options. But that shouldn’t be too hard to swap out for leather, and if you dig around on the web, in-person shots of this particular line seems to show that those lugs look less aggressive when the watch is actually being worn. Perhaps the lugs are of no concern at all to many. The styling, overall, is a bit… different?
Word is it’s an ETA 2824-2 that drives these things.
Brown leather strap option is already gone. One white dial left on a stainless bracelet. Sale ends tomorrow on Rue La La, but if past watch sales on Rue La La are any indication, that which goes unsold might pop up again later? Free shipping, and it is returnable for original form of payment, as long as you pick up the return shipping costs. Returns free if you chose credit. A grand for a retail price is pretty out there, but under $300 seems pretty fair?
So would you wear it? Or is it trying a little too hard? Leave your thoughts below.
