U.S. astronaut Dave Scott wore a Bulova chronograph while he was on the Moon during the Apollo 15 mission, which inspired the Bulova Lunar Pilot. It is a faithful recreation of the original Lunar Pilot, with its curvy case shape retaining the elongated pushers and distinctive curved case. There is not much difference between the dial and this one, except that a date window has been added at 4:30 o’clock, and a label, “262 kHz” is added within the running seconds subdial at 6 o’clock. Despite the fact that some watch enthusiasts will be turned off by the quartz movement in this piece, Bulova’s high-performance quartz movement ticks away at 262 Hz, which is 8 times the frequency of typical quartz movements, and has an accuracy of +/-5 seconds per month.

Tissot PRX Chrono

It’s a new member of the PRX family, which was first introduced in 2021. The 42mm PRX Chrono is slightly larger than the standard 40mm PRX, and the finishing of the case and bracelet is truly impressive for the price. A Swiss Valjoux automatic caliber, from one of the world’s leading Swiss brands, is at the heart of this watch, making it an excellent choice at this price point.
