There's less than seven days until Christmas, and if you're still on the fence about what to give this holiday, look no further! Bulova has the perfect gift for you. The Regatta collection has a wide array of choices that will give the “wow” effect on Christmas morning.
 

Elegantly versatile

Bulova is an American watchmaker that is driven by craftsmanship, innovation, and technology. Their Regatta Collection has always been praised for its versatility and elegance. From a black-tie dinner to a casual Sunday fondue in the snow, this collection is a perfect fit in almost any occasion.
 

Back in the ’60s, Bulova's Regatta was more of a naval timepiece due to its name and its waterproofness. But the timepiece has evolved into a classic staple of their collection.

Distinctive design

The sleek 40mm stainless-steel case has a high polish finish which lends an elegant high-end look. Strap it on the wrist, and it’s a winner. On the wrist, the watch is comfortable and easily wearable under a cuff.
 

A distinctive feature on this piece is the “T” shaped lugs, a subtle nod to Bulova's vintage Regatta timepieces. These T-lugs set the pieces apart from classic watch designs that seemingly become en vogue every few years. At the time, the brand pushed to create an “a la mode Française,” so that their Americans customers could wear the most avant-garde looking watches offered.
 

Another feature that stands out is the beautiful starburst guilloché patterned dial, making this timepiece elegant yet down to earth. The dial finishing is exceptionally playful in the light, changing and catching your eye at every turn. A self-winding mechanical heart is showcased through a small aperture at four o’clock on the dial.
 

Mechanically affordable

This piece is available in two versions. The first has a silver dial and steel bracelet. The second is a black variant with a matching leather strap. At these prices, why not buy two and keep one for yourself?
 

The Bulova Regatta Collection has a beautiful high-end finish, yet is surprisingly affordable. These self-winding timepieces are for sale on Bulova’s website, and prices start from $476 to $556. Christmas delivery is guaranteed if you order before midnight on December 22nd. The Bulova Regatta is the perfect gift for this holiday season.
