The Best Of Bulova…

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.

Bulova Watch Innovations…

Bulova watches have always been innovators in American watchmaking excellence since the brand was founded in 1875 in New York City.

In 1912, Bulova became the first mass producer of timepieces in the world, when they opened a factory in Switzerland. In 1960 Bulova introduced the Accutron watch, the world’s first electronic automatic timepiece. A few years later, the Bulova  Spaceview watch featuring a skeleton dial, was the first mass-produced timepiece of its type.

BUL-96B162-SDMore recently Bulova has introduced new Ultra-High Frequency technology on their Accutron II and Precisionist quartz watch collections. The new technology features three-prong quartz technology that vibrates at 262 khz per second instead of the standard two-prong quartz technology which vibrates  at 32khz per second.

The new Ultra-High Frequency delivers unparalleled accuracy and a fluid sweeping second hand movement that comes close to that of an automatic timepiece, unlike other quartz watches which have a pulsating second hand movement.

You’ll find many of today’s most-wanted Bulova watch styles for men and women at luxury retailer TheWatchery.com during the site’s Bulova Best-Sellers Event. Over 158 models are featured in the promotion, including styles from the popular Precisionist, Accutron, Adventurer, Marine Star, Star Watch, Rosedale and Caravelle NY collections.

Race To The Moon

This forthcoming Monday marks the 46th Anniversary of the first man on the moon landing. On July 20, 1969, Americans Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins were the first astronauts to land on the moon with the Apollo 11 spacecraft.

The spaceflight effectively ended Space Race between the United States and Soviet Union which began at the outset of the Cold War between the two nations in the early 1960’s and fulfilled a national objective proposed by President John F Kennedy in 1961 to have a man land on the moon before the decade was out.

Interestingly another race to the moon coincided with the 1969 moon landing: the race to have the first wristwatch on the moon. Watchmakers Omega and Bulova were both in direct competition with each other during the 1960’s to achieve this honor of distinction.ACCUTRON-63A000

American watchmaker Bulova originally had the edge  for not only being an American watch brand but also producing the Accutron 214 wristwatch, which was used by NASA in early space missions and also became the Official Gift of State when President Johnson was in office during the mid 1960’s.

However, the Plexiglas crystal and dustproof characteristics of the Speedmaster gave Swiss watchmaker Omega the competitive edge over Bulova.

Although Bulova did not make it to the moon, the brand’s Accutron Spaceview timepiece originally intended for space exploration was a global phenomenon when it was introduced in the 1960’s.

The automatic timepiece featured a skeleton dial and no visible crown with the time-setting mechanism on the caseback. It was also the first-mass produced exhibition watch of its type.

The Bulova Accutron Kirkwood Automatic men’s watch available at luxury retailer TheWatchery.com pays homage to the legendary Spaceview timepiece. This outstanding Swiss-made automatic watch has an exhibition skeleton dial and semi exhibition caseback that let you see the intricate movement inside.

The contoured round case in premium grade stainless steel case is highly polished to a mirror-bright glow. The handsome black crocodile textured leather strap has a deployment clasp for added convenience. The skeleton dial features luminous silver colored hands along with Deco inspired Roman numeral and baton hour markers.

Features include a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal above the dial and water resistance to 100 meters or 330 feet. Automatic watch is 40mm in diameter and 12mm thick.

Suitable Attire For The Well-Dressed Wrist

The summer months of June, July and August are among the three most popular months of the year for weddings. Perhaps it’s the warmer temperatures outside or the fact that it is easier to travel for many in the summer than in other seasons.

Never the less, if you’ve been invited to attend a wedding this season or are a part of the wedding party, you will certainly wear the proper attire for the ceremony and other festivities.

A good many weddings are formal in nature and even suggest black tie optional in the invitations. Wearing a tuxedo or classic black suit is usually a good idea when the latter is involved.

Once you have your tuxedo or appropriate suit selected, you’ll also want to wear just the right accessories as well. Formal dress shoes are absolutely essential if you’re wearing a tuxedo, as are cuff links and matching studs for your formal dress shirt.ACCUTRON-63B138-SD

Wearing the proper wristwatch is also vital. You certainly don’t want to pair your black tie and tails with a sport watch, which will not only look out of place but devalue your outfit as well.

It’s Black Friday: Let The Games Begin

The Thanksgiving Holiday  will be filled with many different games this year… from the many NFL and college football games on throughout the weekend to the widely popular “Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1” movie playing to capacity crowds at movie theaters coast-to-coast.

All eyes will be on the Seattle Seahawks – San Francisco 49ers NFL game Thursday night in San Francisco. Both teams are well on their way to the Super Bowl this year with 7-4 records and wining this game could solidify either team’s chance.
