Product Description

Timex

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.

Bulova Adventurer brings vintage style together with modern quartz technology. Adventurer delivers the spirit of exploration through classic retro styling cues, such as luminous markers, stylized Arabic numerals and quality genuine leather strap for him.

    Really liked the look of the face on this watch in the pictures. Took a chance on it and placed the order. REALLY looks super nice in person. Design and detail of the face is outstanding, and the shape of the case completes the look. Date window is large, easy to read and well placed. The color of the case leans towards rose gold rather than yellow gold. Black dial with white detail and the case color all go well together. This is a large watch. I've not got the largest wrist, but the watch sits well once its strapped on and looks great. Gets lots of compliments. If you like the art deco style of the face on this watch, you'll love it in person.

    This is a good-looking watch with a nice retro look to it. I especially like the large date. I don't know how they got the date so large. The date is almost as large as another watch I own that uses two separate digits in the display. As far as I can tell, this watch does not use that technique. The watch itself is large, following the trend of many modern watches today and unlike watches of years past. Although it is large, it wears comfortably on my wrist. I weighed it and found it was 73.4 grams, making it one of the lightest watches I own which adds to the comfort level. I think the gold on the case and the dial gives it a dressy look so I feel it would be appropriate to wear even on more formal occasions.

    this watch would get five stars if the band weren't so long. It really is a great looking timepiece. love the style. great price. the case is kinda thick so it catches on stuff more than my other watches. That's not a huge deal. The band just needs to be about an inch and a half shorter.
