Our Take

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. By 1911, they were selling large quantities of watches and clocks and set up a workshop in Switzerland where this watch was likely produced. Set in a 20 microns gold plated case measuring around 24mm in diameter and 28mm from lug to lug, a small ladies watch, also there is some plate wear evident. The gunmetal dial has aged nicely and has gold markers/hands and the logo in the 12 position, all covered by an acrylic crystal with slight wear. The crown is gold plated and may have been changed at some time as its unmarked. The back case is stainless steel and has serial numbers 2 428940 with date code N0 dating it to 1970. The Bulova 17 jewels hand-wind movement is clean and running as it should, keeping good time. There is a new brown leather strap that will fit a wrist of approximately 6.5” or 16.5cm. The watch comes without the original box or papers, but a gift box will accompany the watch. Please don’t use this watch 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.
