Why We Love This Watch

In 1875, a 23-year-old Czech immigrant named Joseph Bulova opened up a jewelry shop on Madison Lane, New York City. Little did this immigrant know that he'll eventually make a company under his last name and take it into innovating heights and successes. From producing the country's first radio advertisement to create a watch that was the precursor to quartz watches, which was eventually used in space, Bulova is one company that made an impact on the world of horology.

This 1950's piece is a look into Bulova's creative side. Beautiful hollowed-out lugs, black and gold contrasting dial with a sub-seconds hand, and a 10k rolled gold case, this unique, manually-wound caliber 11AC Bulova is a unique beauty. Such a design is very uncommon in Bulova's catalog and its design languages marry the glamour and eccentric cues of the 1920s and 30's art deco design combined with the transitioning modern era. If you seem to tire of the streamlined and somewhat common look of modern watches, vintage is great deviance to creativity and this Bulova serves the best of both eras.
