About Bulova

Bulova is a subsidiary of the Citizen Watch Company based in New York City. Established in 1875, Bulova is known for its Accutron movement where the tuning fork is wedged between the electromagnetic coils located at the topmost portion of the watch.

The Accutron collection first came out in October of 1960. According to watch experts, the true accutron has a high pitched hum coming from the tuning fork unlike other watches that tick. Bulova stopped producing its tuning fork movement wristwatches by the late 70s and started putting quartz watches in their repertoire to save on costs.

Bulova Vs. Omega

Back in the 60s when NASA was about to send men to the moon, Bulova and Omega had a space age battle to get their watches to go to the moon. Omega won the battle because Bulova wasn’t able to get Accutron certified as dustproof.

A timepiece made for the adventurous; the Bulova Accutron Eagle Pilot watch features a very sleek design. Its very solid case made from stainless steel boasts a dual time-zone quartz movement. The case itself is 44 mm in diameter and is strapped on a black leather strap.

This is definitely the perfect men’s watch for the avid traveller.

Bulova Accutron Kirkwood

This watch is water resistant up to 330 feet. It is a mechanical automatic. What is great about this Kirkwood design is that you can see the movement at the back and can also take a look at it through the aperture on the front part of the case.
