Our Take

Somewhat of a rarity these days, Bulova was originally founded in America in 1875 and later had their movements produced in Switzerland, the company is now owned by Citizen and has been since 2008. This petite Bulova dating back to 1977, according to its date code N7, has a stainless steel case in excellent condition for its age, it measures around 24mm in diameter and 26mm from lug to lug. It has a mineral crystal protecting both the dial and hands, there is some ageing on the dial around the edges. The original steel crown is signed with the logo. The case back is steel and has some surface wear, the serial number is 584-4407. The Bulova 1200-10 manual wind 17 jewels movement runs as it should and keeps good time. The original stainless steel strap is still present and will fit a wrist of approximately 6.3” or 16cm. The watch comes without the original box or papers but a gift box will accompany it. Water resistance is not guaranteed, so it will need to be kept away from water.

About Bulova

In what seems to be something of a rarity today, Bulova is an American based watch manufacturer, first found in 1875, making it just less than a century younger than the country itself. Today, the Bulova brand is owned by Citizen and has been since 2008.

Perhaps Bulova’s biggest achievement was that it was the first privately owned watch that saw active service on the moon, after a failure of another well-known brand’s watch. The Bulova Chronograph Model #88510/01 later sold for $1.625 million.

Many of the vintage Bulova models are branded under the ‘Accutron’ name, which lays claim to being the first electronic watch, thanks to its ‘tuning fork’ design – giving the watch a faint, high-pitched hum.
