For men’s watch enthusiasts, there’s a captivating journey through horological history awaiting you with Bulova’s latest creation. The iconic watchmaker has taken a step back in time to resurrect a legend from its archives. The Bulova GMT, a modern reimagining of the classic Devil Diver, is here to make a grand entrance into the world of timepieces.

Bulova has a rich history that dates back to the early 20th century, and one of its most legendary creations was the Devil Diver, first introduced in 1972. The Bulova Devil Diver was a true dive watch, as its name suggests, built to withstand the pressures of the deep sea while exuding an unmistakable sense of style. Fast forward to 2023, and Bulova has reached into the depths of its heritage design vault to breathe new life into this beloved classic.

Superior movement

At the heart of this timepiece beats the reliable Bulova Caliber 3186 movement. This automatic movement not only ensures precise timekeeping but also powers the GMT function, allowing wearers to keep track of two time zones simultaneously. Whether you’re a globetrotter or simply appreciate the convenience, the Bulova GMT has you covered in the world of men’s watches.

The Bulova GMT is built to last, just like its predecessor. With a water resistance of up to 200 meters, it’s not just a stylish accessory; it’s a tool for adventurers. Whether you’re exploring the depths of the ocean or navigating the concrete jungle, this watch is designed to withstand the rigors of your journey. This collection pays tribute to the Devil Diver’s legacy with its retro-inspired design and impeccable attention to detail.

Imagine waking up for your early morning run, looking out the window, and deciding to go for a run, only to get hammered by a downpour you're not expecting. Or dressing for the office in a comfortable polo and chinos only to get caught in a cold front you didn't know about. Leaving your teeth chattering and your day ruined. That is a reality we left behind a long time ago when smartphones developed weather apps to keep us informed. However, if you are an Apple Watch user, you may be feeling transported back to the 1990s as your app has been unusable in one aspect.

According to the company's own system status webpage, the app is experiencing an outage that is causing many users to be unable to access the service. The common results when checking the app are slow updated data, a message that says there is no current updated data, or even an inability to access the data at all. What makes this situation more irritating for some users is the fact that this is a primary app that comes pre-installed on all iPhones and Apple Watches.
