From the Precisionist Collection. Featuring Bulova’s proprietary Precisionist quartz accuracy, in stainless steel with silver and black ion-plated finish, curved crystal, a couple of-layer black carbon fiber, grey and silver dial, red incessantly sweeping second hand, luminous hands and markers, curved calendar window, 24-hour track, screw-back case, screw-down crown, double-press fold-over clasp with safety lock, and water resistance to 30 meters.
At the heart of the watch is the Bulova Precisionist-class torsional resonator movement, custom-engineered to offer accuracy to within seconds a year the use of a three-prong quartz crystal that creates a vibration frequency of 262.144 kHz, the absolute best of any watch on the planet and far greater than that of an ordinary quartz crystal. In laboratory testing, the Precisionist-class movement has been shown to be thrice more accurate than standard quartz. This proprietary manufactured movement, including the signature floating second hand, also offers a resistance to gravitational error that makes it superior in performance to any mechanical watch in the marketplace.
Summary of Features
In 1875, Joseph Bulova, a 23-year-old immigrant, set up shop in New York City and a legendary American watch brand was once born. Since then, Bulova has stood proudly in the leading edge of timekeeping innovation, committed to the legacy of creativity and excellence established by its founder.
A pioneering force within the industry, Bulova transformed how watches were worn and how time was once perceived, registering over 50 patents as he and his company built a record of creativity including the primary full lines of men’s (1919) and ladies’ (1924) wristwatches, the primary clock/radio (1928) and the primary electric clock (1931). To verify the utmost in precision, in 1920, Bulova even established its own observatory – positioned atop its New York skyscraper. With that same spirit of innovation, following World War II, decided “to serve folks who served us,” Bulova established The Bulova School of Watchmaking, the use of new and unique easy methods to train disabled veterans for positions within the watch and jewelry industry. Then, in 1960, Bulova changed timekeeping eternally with the revolutionary Accutron, the world’s first fully electronic watch. An integral part of U.S. space technology, Accutron timing was once used on 46 NASA missions, including Apollo XI, the primary lunar landing (1969).
Today, as one of the vital world’s most recognized brands, Bulova has expanded around the globe, with four separate watch brands, Bulova, Bulova AccuSwiss, Bulova Accutron II and Caravelle New York, in addition to the award-winning Bulova Clocks.
The signature Bulova brand provides an extensive number of watches for each and every occasion, crafted of the finest materials, including 315L surgical grade stainless steel, diamonds, mother-of-pearl, carbon fiber, top-quality leather and Bulova’s proprietary Duramic™ nylon/ceramic composite, and powered by Precisionist-class quartz, automatic and quartz movements. An industry leader in diamond watch styling, with the brand new Diamond Gallery offering exquisite designs in stainless steel with sapphire crystals, Bulova could also be known for Precisionist, featuring Bulova’s proprietary Precisionist-class quartz torsional resonator movement for accuracy to within seconds per year, the Marine Star collection, combining high-performance sports timekeeping with superior durability and water resistance to at least 100 meters, and a comprehensive number of classic styles, every with a three-year limited warranty.
