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.See all Product description

Top customer reviews
I am very pleased with the build quality as it has a nice solid feel to it, especially for the price. It's definitely worth the money.
**Two things to note**:
1) This watch was recently moved out of the "Marine Star" collection and into Bulova's "Bulova" collection, meaning it does not have the "Marine Star," "200M," nor the Bulova Tuning Fork logo, only the "Bulova" name on the watch face (pictured). Pictures elsewhere of older models of this watch differ for this reason.
2) I haven't had any issues with water leaks and I believe others may have because they forgot to screw in the crown first. This watch has a screw-in crown in order to make it water tight. It arrives in the box with the crown "screwed-out," so make sure to push in and screw to the right all the way before taking underwater.
I can look at 100 chronographs and not like any of them. This one I liked. I've had it for a year and see no signs of wear on the front bezel although some faint scratches in the crystal have appeared. This is certainly the most accurate watch I have owned. It gains about a minute over 6 months.
The bezel is marked as a tachymeter, meaning you can use it to measure speed in miles per hour. The bezel does not rotate.
The watch is thick and heavy, but not uncomfortable to wear. The rubber watchband has held up well. The glow-in-the-dark numbers are adequately visible. I am very pleased.
Very comfortable, stylish, scratch resistant, water resistant and practical. Highly suggest you purchase this watch!
I have had nothing but complements about this watch.
Protect the watch face before you wear it... I used Klear Kare scratch resistant film and you can't even tell that it is on there.
