While some watch brands may boast of their American heritage and roots, Bulova is a true red, white and blue American watch brand with a rich heritage of time-keeping excellence, dating back to 1875 when the brand was founded in New York, NY by Joseph Bulova.
Although a lot has changed in the watch industry and the world since 1875, the brand’s headquarters remain in New York City today over 141 years since it was founded with headquarters on the 29th floor of the Empire State Building.
The brand holds the distinction of being the very first mass producer of timepieces in the world, when they opened a watch production factory in Switzerland in 1912.
Today, the Bulova Accutron and Accu-Swiss division produces Swiss-made timepieces, while other divisions including the eponymous brand and Bulova Accutron II are produced in Asia. Interestingly, the designs of Bulova, Bulova Accu-Swiss and Bulova Accutron timepieces are instituted and created at the New York City headquarters.
These premium crafted timepieces are highlighted this week at TheWatchery.com with our Best of Bulova Event.
Over 60 popular men’s and women’s watches are featured in the promotion, including highly sought-after styles from the Accu-Swiss Masella, Telc, Bellecombe and Kirkwood collections, as well as models from the Bulova Sea King, Crystals, Diamond Gallery and Precisionist series.
Exemplary in both precision craftsmanship and design, the Bulova Accu-Swiss Kirkwood men’s watch is in a league of its own. This outstanding Swiss-made automatic men’s timepiece features the round contoured case in premium grade stainless steel, highly polished to a lustrous patina. The handsome crocodile-textured black leather strap has a deployment clasp closure for added convenience and security.
The stationary polished steel bezel encircles the captivating skeleton dial with a black outer dial, luminous baton hands, luminous baton and Arabic numeral hour markers. An exhibition skeleton case back lets you see the intricate automatic movement inside.
Features include a scratch resistant sapphire crystal above the dial and water-resistance to 100 meters or 330 feet. The Accu-Swiss Kirkwood men’s watch is 40mm in diameter and 12mm thick.
The Bulova Accu-Swiss Bellecombe Diamond watch is a dazzling choice. This breath-taking women’s watch is elegant, sophisticated and a reflection of good taste in lustrous yellow gold-tone stainless steel and diamonds.
Both the perfectly round case and tear-drop link bracelet in yellow gold-tone stainless steel are highly polished to a mirror-bright glow. Thirty shimmering round-cut diamonds create a dramatic focal point on the right side area encircling the bezel and crown. The fluted yellow gold tone stainless steel crown is topped with a white cabochon accent.
The silvery white dial features a fan patterned center background, polished sword hands, black baton and Roman numeral hour markers. The vintage inspired gold colored dial features polished yellow gold-tone sword hands and an hour-glass design outer dial with Roman numeral and baton hour markers.

The Bulova Precisionist men’s watch features state-of-the-art UHF technology, patented by Bulova along with polished debonair styling. The new three prong UHF quartz technology vibrates at 262 khz per second instead of the standard two-prong quartz technology which vibrates at 32khz per second.
The new UHF technology delivers unparalleled accuracy and it offers fluid sweeping second hand movement on the dial that comes very close to replicating that of automatic timepiece, unlike other quartz watches which have a pulsating second hand movement.
