    I have two Bulova watches almost the same size but one has 14mm lugs and the other has 16mm lugs. is the 14mm lug a ladies watch:???:? measurements of watch with no band
    Bulova
    measurement between lugs is 14mm
    Lug To Lug 37.02mm
    Width minus crown 26.17mm

    Measrement of watch with black band is
    Lug To Lug 37.27mm
    Width-27.13mm Less Crown
    measurement between lugs is 16.25mm

    So is the 14mm lug watch a ladies or a Man's :???:?

    Those are both watches that were originally marketed to men. Today (as always) anybody can wear them!

    Yet when I try and find a 14mm band they all say for ladies watch and leather or stretch band are all thin, not like a Man's band at all!!!!

    Yeah it might be hard to find a modern strap for a 14. I searched ebay and found some untapered 14mm vintage straps. I flipped through the Borel strap catalog and I think some of them might be untapered too. You might stop in at a jeweler's and ask them to find you an untapered one.
