The watch

When Joseph Bulova, a Czech immigrant in Manhattan launched his brand in 1875, many must have thought he was delirious. America’s horology industry at that time was not particularly well known, nor was he.  America is not Switzerland, and this is probably why Bulova has been obsessed with precision during its glory years, even installing for himself an observatory on a skyscraper’s roof to measure time with greater accuracy. Yes, from the early 1920s to the late 1940s America was on Bulova time.  Then came the time for innovation, and Bulova probably more than anyone else anticipated the Quartz crisis by launching the iconic Accutron, a line that features some of the most futuristic designs of the time.

It’s in the spirit of creativity and by thinking outside the box that Bulova also launched sporty models, elegant models and on and on.

This Bulova watch is absolutely stunning. Everything is made with a level of attention to details that could justify a way higher price tag. The case has a very well thought style, round with special lugs and a nice GMT bezel. The stainless steel band while not being integrated pairs perfectly with the case. Dial is simple and clear with tritium index and a GMT hand. Powered by the trademarked Accutron movement, this watch is probably one of the best timepiece ever produced by Bulova. Cherry on the cake, it is in fantastic condition and comes with its original wooden box.
