Bulova Watches are considered by many to be true American time-keeping legends. Founded in 1875 in New York, NY, the brand holds a rich heritage on American soil and is a leader of many “firsts” in horological history.
In 1912, Bulova opened a factory in Switzerland and become the first mass producer of timepieces in the world. In 1926, the brand broadcasted the first radio commercial in America’s, which was heard by millions across the nation. Fifteen years later, Bulova aired the world’s first television commercial in 1941.
The brand’s affiliation with pilot Charles Lindberg after his non-stop flight across the Atlantic led to the introduction of the widely popular Lone Eagle watch collection in the early 1930s. During the 1960s, Bulova was in the race to have the first watch to be worn on the moon during the Apollo 11 flight in 1969, but lost out to the Omega Speedmaster.
The brand’s Spaceview watch, featuring a skeleton dial and designed for space exploration was released during this era. It was widely popular and the first-mass produced exhibition dial watch of its type.
Bulova currently remains a leader in the affordable timepiece market. The brand’s Marine Star and Precisionist collections are among the top-selling men’s and women’s watches in the world today. You can find a wide array of Bulova timepieces at popular online retailer WorldofWatches.com.
The Bulova Marine Star men’s chronograph makes a bold, masculine statement. This outstanding timepiece has strapping case and triple-link bracelet in gunmetal finished stainless steel.
