The Legacy of Bulova Watches

The Legacy of Bulova Watches

In 1875, Joseph Bulova, 23 year­ old immigrant from Bohemia, set up shop in New York City and a legendary American watch brand was born.

A pioneering force in the industry, Bulova transformed how watches were worn and how time was perceived, registering over 50 patents as he and his company built a record of creativity including the first full lines of men’s and ladies’ wristwatches. (1919 and 1924)

In 1960, Bulova changed timekeeping forever with the revolutionary Accutron, the world’s first fully electronic watch.An integral component of U.S. Space technology, Accutron timing was used on 46 NASA missions, including Apollo XI, the first lunar landing (1969)

Today, this dedication to creativity continues, with Bulova the only brand to offer three distinct timekeeping technologies – quartz, mechanical and Precionist.
