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. Set in a stainless steel case measuring 36mm in diameter and 42mm from lug to lug, a good size for a vintage watch. The gold dial is clean with roman numeral markers and the sword-shaped hands with sweep seconds, quickset date/day at 3 o’clock, covered by a mineral crystal. The gold crown is unsigned and slightly faded. The back case screws in and has the brand name and ref 1D14M. The Bulova automatic movement with 25 jewels is running as it should, keeping good time. The replacement leather strap will fit a wrist of approximately 7” or 17.5cm. The watch comes without the original box or papers, but a gift box will accompany the watch. Please don’t use this near water as we cannot guarantee water resistance.

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.
