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.
