Bulova is most often considered an American company that imported movements from Switzerland and only cased and timed them here before selling them. Actually Bulova manufactured more different movements in the US than any other company except Elgin.

I have been compiling a list of Bulova movements from photos or examples I have seen that are marked USA.

With a nicely-sized 37mm cushion case in original condition, this piece feels right at home on the modern wrist.

The black dial is both legible and interesting owing to its outer chapter ring and bold luminous hour markers, and a day-date window at .

I do love Accutron watches – the gentle hum and the perfectly sweeping second hand are enough to get me going 😉 This particular Bulova Accutron was sent to me by Constantine from NY State together with a batch of other watches. The smallest wheel at the top is the index wheel – it has 320 teeth!

The first year of production for most of the list came from the my site.

I take the movement out of the case and start taking it apart. So the index wheel turns 1 1/8 or a turn every second. The coil on the left – called the component coil – has actually two different windings.

One is excited by the magnet swinging in and out of the coil, and it drives the transistor, which in turn powers the second coil and the coil on the right, which moves the tuning fork.

Includes two 20mm nylon straps from Crown & Buckle SKU: TT01117 Let’s be straight here - we feel like Bulova doesn’t get enough credit.

Before the quartz era, Bulova had a reputation like no other.

Obsessed with precision, Bulova went above and beyond; they built their own observatories to determine universal time and developed the concept of interchangeable parts to watchmaking.
