Bulova: An American Time-Keeping Tradition

For generations the Bulova Watch brand has been an American time-keeping institution. Founded in 1875 Joseph Bulova, the company started its operations in lower Manhattan, the nucleus of the jewelry industry for New York City and the entire nation at the time.

In the 1900’s, the company moved its headquarters to Fifth Avenue in Manhattan and later to Woodside in the borough of Queens, where it currently resides. In early 2015, Bulova will be returning to its Manhattan roots, when it relocates to the 29th Floor of the celebrated Empire State Building on Fifth Avenue.

The brand’s desire to move back to move back to fashion capital of the world is consistent with their recent emphasis on fashion-forward and innovative timepiece collections for men and women, many of which are making their debuts this week during the Bulova New Arrivals event at luxury retailer TheWatchery.com.

For generations Rolex watches have been considered the timepieces of royalty, presidents and dignitaries. The brand is originally of British descent, founded in London, England in 1908 by entrepreneurs Hans Wilsdorf and Alfred Davis.

At the formation of the new brand, Wilsdorf and Davis opened  a production plant in Switzerland, while maintaining a corporate office in England. The brand later moved their corporate offices to Switzerland in 1918.

Rolex remains the pre-eminent Swiss watchmaker in the world today. Their state-of-art craftsmanship and classic yet innovative designs have made them one of the most sough- after watch brands around. What’s more, most Rolex watches hold their value better   brands.

Extraordinary Maurice Lacroix Time

Private label watch brands hold a time-honored distinction in the watchmaking industry. For generations a number of Swiss watchmakers provided movements, cases and entire timepieces for other Swiss watch brands.

Legendary watchmakers Zenith, Baume & Mercier and Roger DuBuis produced movements and entire timepieces for other prestigious brands in the 1900’s, including Tiffany, Cartier and Rolex.  More recently, popular watchmakers TW Steel and Maurice Lacroix started as private label watchmakers, producing timepieces under various brands before offering their house brands to the public.

Interestingly, many of today’s most sought-after fashion watch brands: Michael Kors, Burberry, Tory Burch, Emporio Armani, Marc by Marc Jacobs, DKNY and Diesel are produced by popular American watchmaker Fossil under licensing agreements.

MLACROIX-MP7208-SS001-000Maurice Lacroix’s origins began in 1975 as a manufacturer of private-label timepieces for its parent company Desco.  Every element of the brand’s timepieces was produced in-house at their manufacturing facilities in Switzerland.

By 1980, the private label’s prominence and popularity were so much in demand that Desco halted the production of third party timepieces at its Swiss manufacturing plant and introduced the Maurice Lacroix brand, featuring the premium quality and expert craftsmanship of its private label models.

In the early 1990’s, Maurice Lacroix introduced the Masterpiece watch collection and the brand immediately rose to international acclaim for its bespoke automatic and mechanical timepieces for men and women.

Maurice Lacroix wristwatches are showcased this week at luxury retailer TheWatchery.com during the site’s week-long Maurice Lacroix Extraordinary Timepieces For Men & Women event. Heralded timepieces from the brand’s Masterpiece, Les Classiques and Pontos collections are featured in the event.

Gruosi, who is married to Caroline Gruosi Scheufele, heir of the Chopard watch brand, was commissioned in the late 1990’s by Chopard to design black diamond watches for Chopard, including the hugely successful Ice Cube Collection. The success of the latter collection inspired Gruosi to introduce the DeGrisogono Instrumento No Uno men’s watch series in 2000 and the women’s Instrumentino collection a year later.DEGRISOGONO-GNTINOACIERN04B
