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.

I like the screw down crown which gives added protection during water activities.
The hands and face of the watch have super bright illumination in the dark, making it very easy to read at night.
The rotating bezel is convenient and easy to use as a timer.
The look of the watch itself is sporty, polished, and dignified. Can be worn on a suit, with jeans, or even with shorts. An everyday watch with class.
The weight of the watch is a bit heavy but one gets used to it.
Other metal band watches have tended to pull the hair out of my arms. This watch, with it's metal band, has yet to do so. Fits very comfortably.
I'm hoping to wear this watch for years to come.
- Very accuarate Japanese quartz movment (keeps very good time).
- Much higher quality than Invicta and Casio.
- Tight rotating bezel.
- Band extender for a dive suit.
- Water resistant to 660ft.
- Clean sharp bezel and face.
- Tight screw down crown.
- Descent lumin.
- Overall good quality and can feel it too.
- Slighty cheap, loose, and floppy Chinese bracelet, but not nearly and bad as Invicta, but not as good as SEIKO
- Second hand is slighty off each second tick but not a big prob.
- Not American made for an American brand!
Overall its a great, sharp, clean, quality watch for its price. Has its cons but it isnt a Rolex, Omega, or Breitling. Highly recommended!
It has a pretty low profile compared to some of the other coin edge diving watches, but it has nice heft and is very comfortable. The watch has some weight but is very balanced on the wrist and doesn't feel heavy after extended wearing. It fits my 7.5" wrist very well, that's always a concern when buying a watch online, but you will be pleased with the diameter and case thickness if your wrist is similarly sized. The lume on the watch seems to be decent. I havent had it long enough to comment much on this aspect, but it has done well outside and in a dark bedroom. I set the watch against an atomic G-Shock and the Bulova seems to be very accurate.
Don't hesitate to buy this watch if you are on the fence, it's a great value and really looks amazing on the wrist.
