Bulova

Bulova

In 1875, a young Czech immigrant named Joseph Bulova set up shop in New York City, and a legendary American watch brand was born. Bulova was trained as a jeweler, and his expertise carried over into his watchmaking career, which began around 1911 with boudoir clocks and pocket watches, and soon evolved to include what was then one of the latest and most fashionable technological innovations: the wristwatch.

Bulova introduced its first line of wristwatches in 1919. The company grew and prospered, and soon early radio and television ads were declaring, "America runs on Bulova time." In the 1950s, continuing its legacy of innovation, Bulova introduced Accutron, the first electronic watch, and the first breakthrough in timekeeping technology in over 300 years. The Accutron timing mechanism was later adapted for use by NASA computers and a Bulova timer was even placed on the moon to control transmissions of data. Bulova timepieces have kept official time aboard Air Force One and have also served as official timepieces for U.S. Olympic teams.

Today, Bulova maintains its tradition of excellence in technology and design, offering a diverse collection of beautiful precision timepieces for every occasion.

    After weeks of researching watches for my boyfriends Christmas present I finally decided on one. Soon after, I ordered this watch for my boyfriend (2 days before Christmas). I was nervous that the watch wouldn't come in on time and the Christmas present wouldn't be able to be given until after it was all over. However, to my surprise the watch was delivered right on time (as promised by Amazon). The packaging it came in was handled with care and the Bulova watch inside was stunning. After seeing how beautiful the watch was, I couldn't wait until Christmas to give it to him. So... as he walked in the door from shopping I presented him with the watch.

    His reaction to the watch was unforgettable; he acted like a kid on Christmas that has just opened up the one thing they really wanted. His eyes lit up and I don't think I have ever seen a smile that big. He really loves the way the watch looks and likes that he can see the internal workings of the watch (not to mention that he won't ever have to purchase a battery for the watch, saving him money).

    He tried it on, the watch was a little too big, and we had to take it to the jewelry store to have a few links taken out, which only cost $5.00. The small price of $5 to have the links taken out was worth the priceless memory I gained from seeing the happiness on my boyfriends face after he saw his new Bulova watch.

    I got this watch because I already had a Bulova watch. Its a battery powered watch with day and date - I've had it for about 3 years. It works just fine, but needs a new battery about once a year. The new self-winding watch is really nice - a bigger face and a nice look. The ONLY reason I didn't give it 5-stars is that it doesn't have a day and date display. And to get one, I'd have had to spend a lot more $$$! This is a good watch and I don't have to use batteries - good for me and the environment - I just need to move my wrist from time to time! I'd give it 4.5 stars if I could!!

    This Bulova Men's watch came in excellent condition, box and watch, same condition I saw it at the Jeweler's with one exception, paid much less for it. It also arrived in perfect time frame. Thank you very much and I will always check your site before making purchases at any jeweler.

    I have owned this watch for about one year now, and have been very happy with it. The build quality, fit, and finish are all superb. I was a little concerned with the accuracy of an Automatic watch before I got it, but am happy to say that it keeps very good time. I have to adjust it about once every 1-to-2 weeks, but overall it is not a big deal. The mechanism is very neat and I like the small view you get through the face.

    As an added perk, Bulova is a brand with an interesting history.

    It had been a while since I regularly wore a watch, and I was interested in getting a new one. I saw this one in a department store, and was about to buy it, but I felt that it was better to talk with my wife first. After doing what would keep me out of trouble, I looked it up on Amazon and found that it was $100 cheaper then the sale price at the department store. Needless to say, I ordered it that night.

    Since this is an automatic, if you don't wear it everyday, you must reset the time before putting it back on again. No problems with it at all.

    1. I am not a watch expert.
    2. After years of not wearing a watch, I was intrigued with mechanical (automatic) movements. I was looking for something that looked a little like a 'dress watch' for an upcoming wedding.
    3. I think the watch looks better than the pictures. The polish is very high...very shiney watch. The window on the dial is a delight to watch, as is the open faced back.
    4. In my limited < week experience, the watch keeps good time. Admittedly, after the first day, without a winder, the watch was dead in the morning. However; after setting the time and wearing it a full day...I took it off at 6pm, set it on the desk, then in the morning (8am) the time was still correct. NOTE: I am curious to see how this goes as the novelty wears off...ie. I think 'knowing' it is an automatic wind, I am making an effort to move my wrist....we shall see..but for now I am happy. Also, I do have a winder on order...cause I think I have caught the watch bug :)
    Random Thoughts:
    The watch will come with the band likely too large for your wrist...you will need to go to a jeweler to have it resized. For me, this cost $6, with the caveat that if I wanted to go tighter later, there would be no cost. On a related note: some jewelers give a little 'attitude' if you didn't buy from them...if you know anyone 'into' watches get a recommendation...just a thought.

    All for now, will update as opinion changes.

    Hope you enjoy as much as I do...nothing but compliments so far, as well as surprise at the price I paid on Amazon.

    Last year, I bought my husband a watch for his birthday. I did a lot of research into it and chose a Kenneth Cole. The watch was gorgeous and had received many good reviews. Sadly, just months into owning it, it stopped working for no apparent reason. As we live overseas, sending things back to companies and what not can be a hassle, so we took it to a local jeweler. The gentleman looked at the watch and declared it had Chinese parts and was no good. I'm not sure if that's true for all watches with Chinese parts but the man mentioned how many watches with Chinese parts just randomly stop working. He held on to the watch for a week, trying to see if he could find parts that matched it to fix it. Sadly, a no go. So, here I was again, looking for a watch (sorry for the long intro). At first, we chose a different watch, but there was only one left and we were not quick enough. Eventually, I saw this watch. Ordered it and we got it yesterday. The picture does NOT do it justice. The watch is masculine, debonair, attractive... It's like James Bond in watch form (minus the crazy gadgets). I hope the watch just ages as well as Bond did/does. I'll try to update in about a month or so to let you know if we still love it!
