Our Take

High-performance technology and enduring quality, following the Bulova tradition. Designed in NYC. Set in a gold plated round case measuring 30mm in diameter and 34mm from lug to lug, a midsize watch suitable for both gents and ladies alike. The round bezel is gold plated and has ‘screws’ at the 4 main positions. The dial is like a navy blue colour and has been refurbished, its clean and elegant, with gold hands, and the logo at the 12 o’clock position, all covered by a replacement mineral crystal. The time is set by pushing in the crown button on the side and holding it, releasing it and quickly pressing it again and holding. The back case pops in and has the brand name and ref 6-441744 as well as date code P9 indicating it was made in 1989. The Bulova quartz movement is running as it should, keeping perfect 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.
