Our Take

A fairly modern watch by vintage standards, just over 30 years old, but Bulova as a brand has been around a long time and this unique Bulova Titanium 8978905 80s Quartz is something special. Set in all titanium, the case measuring around 30mm in diameter and 32mm from lug to lug, a good size for a lady. The grey dial is clean and simple with only the logo at the 12 o’clock position, the mineral glass covering it has unique patterns on it adding to the funkiness of the watch! The crown is brushed titanium and is unsigned. The back case has the brand name and serial/model numbers 8978905/764480. The quartz movement is clean and running as it should, keeping perfect time. The original leather strap in grey and yellow to match the watch will fit a wrist of approximately 7.5” or 19cm. A unique watch in a like new condition. No box or papers, unfortunately, 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.
