    The New Bulova Lunar Pilot LE

    Bulova pays tribute to Apollo 15 with a new LE lunar pilot chronograph . For some this is a large watch but I like it .

    Eurgh. WHEN will they release one with the old logo, no date, shiny case and flat crystal? They've done everything but.

    I would have bought one years ago if they'd brought out a sensible sized version, though I believe the problem is the size of the movement.

    Agreed except looking at the space around the sub registers, I get the feeing they could definitely shrink it by a couple of millimetres.

    Sigh, still huge. They would sell a boat load of the original one if they would just address the elephant in the room and shrink it a bit

    That crystal doesn't protrude so much above the case and is slightly domed, different from the flat crystal that protrudes more.

    Yesterday (2nd August) was the 50th anniversary of when the watch was worn on the moon.

    Even the metalwork on the NATO is 2-tone!

    There's a post on an American site, I'll see if I can dig it out. Guy purchased both versions, laid them next to each other and seemed to think the crystals were identical.

    Huh... I've only ever seen the shiny, old logo, no date version with the domed crystal, must do some digging. Can you link me to that?

    The crystals on all the models are flat.

    Fair dos. For some reason the renders shown on jewellers websites show slightly domed crystals starting more flush to the bezel. Well, what is there in lieu of a bezel.
