With an unwavering drive for perfection, efficiency and precision, quality craftsmanship became the foundation upon which Joseph Bulova built his brand. But what fuelled the brand’s continual progress was its spirit of invention – pursuing innovation and technology both within the timepiece industry – and beyond.
Bulova’s industry innovations included everything from pioneering standardised production of watches to developing the first fully electronic watch with proprietary tuning-fork based technology making it at the time the most accurate watch in the world. But our breakthroughs reached beyond the world of timekeeping alone.
Bulova pioneering spirit changed the face of marketing with America’s very first radio and TV commercials. They made advancements in the world of sports with the Phototimer, and even transformed transportation through collaborations with Lindbergh and on 46 NASA space missions. During the first moonwalk, a Bulova timer was even placed in the sea of tranquility.
Re-iterating its longstanding dedication to history of firsts, the Precisionist collection was introduced in 2010. Intricately styled and infinitely accurate, with a continuous sweeping second hand. Most recently in 2016, the brand (quite literally) changed the face of the industry with the Curv collection – the world’s first curved chronograph movement.
Today, Bulova is driven by the same core principles of craftsmanship, innovation and technology that guided our visionary founder over 140 years ago. Much like Joseph Bulova himself, the Brand set their own standards and create their own rules – breaking boundaries along the way to deliver the exceptional.
