Whether you’re looking for a watch for yourself or for a friend, loved one, or family member, you won’t find a watch anywhere that has the same combination of style, elegance, and dependability that you’ll get in a watch from Bulova. They say that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, and while Bulova watches are often imitated, they’re never duplicated.
Set Yourself Apart From the Crowd With a Bulova Watch
A person’s choice of wristwatch says a lot about them; choosing to wear a particular watch is a way of making a personal statement about how you see yourself, as well as how you’d like the world to perceive you. That’s why you should choose a wristwatch carefully, and it’s one of the main reasons millions of people choose Bulova watches. And it’s also why many people choose to own several Bulova watches – with so many different styles, all of them remarkably attractive in their own way, you can find several different watches for different occasions, or a single watch for all occasions when you choose Bulova.
When you decide to make your next watch a Bulova, you’ll have many options to choose from. Bulova has always been a leader when it comes to watches for both men and women, and that’s just as true today as it was a century ago. Some of their most notable and talked about watches right now are their new ones from the CURV collection, which are the world’s first curved chronograph movement watches. The Rubaiyat watches are another renowned collection from Bulova, and these legendary watches are in a class by themselves when it comes to style and luxury. The Frank Lloyd Wright collection from Bulova offers some of the most striking and iconic watches available anywhere, and at an unbelievable price, especially when you consider you’re getting Bulova’s quality and dependability in these beautiful designs.
At the opposite end of the spectrum, Bulova’s Futuro watch collection offers several designs that are quite bold but will look great on your wrist no matter the occasion. If you really want to make a statement with your wristwatch, there’s no better choice than a watch from the Bulova Crystal collection. Available for both men and women, these truly striking watches feature the classic beauty and elegance of the Bulova design, matched with hand-set Swarovski crystals.
All told, Bulova provides hundreds of different watches to choose from, in many different styles and price levels, so no matter if you’re shopping for a watch for yourself or a loved one, you’re sure to find a Bulova watch that’s just right. Don’t miss their themed watches – Bulova has watches paying tribute to both the Grammy’s and the Latin Grammy’s, and there are even dozens of Bulova watches featuring the name and logo of Harley-Davidson, the legendary American motorcycle company.
Bulova Watches: An American Original
Known for producing some of the most accurate watches in the world, the Bulova Watch Company is a true American original. The company was founded in New York City in 1875 by Joseph Bulova, an immigrant from Europe, and it didn’t take long for Mr. Bulova’s demanding standards and meticulous craftsmanship to be recognized by those in the market for high quality watches. By the early part of the new century, Bulova watches were already known as some of the finest time pieces available anywhere, rivaling even European watch companies which had been around for much longer.
It’s no exaggeration to say that for millions of people, not just here in America, but around the world, the very concept of a high-quality watch is synonymous with the Bulova Watch Company. In fact, Bulova is considered to be such a renowned leader in timekeeping that the company was selected for two very special and historic honors. In 1926, it was the first company in the world to have an advertisement broadcast over the radio. Then, in 1941, the first paid advertisement that ever appeared on television was broadcast, and it was also a Bulova ad. Already famous for its elegant and dependable watches, these remarkable events helped Bulova become even more well known as the world leader in watches.
A Legendary Watch Manufacturer
In fact, the Bulova watch has become such a hallmark of quality and innovation that entire books have been written about Joseph Bulova and the company he founded and built. Author Aaron Sigmund, in his book Bulova: A History of Firsts, writes that the Joseph Bulova story is the very embodiment of the American Dream, and he compares the Bulova Watch Company to other legendary and hugely influential American companies named after their founders, such as Disney, Ford, Hershey, and Levi’s.
The list of Bulova watch firsts is simply astonishing. Here are just a few of the Bulova company breakthroughs – the first radio advertisement in the world, the first television advertisement in the world, the first mass produced wristwatch, the first full line of men’s jeweled wristwatches, the first full line of women’s watches, the first watch company with a one million dollar ad campaign, the first timepiece company to offer a year warranty on clock radios, the first electronic watch (the Accutron, which debuted in 1960), the first clock whose time was controlled by a satellite from space, and the first privately owned watch on the moon (which recently sold for $1.62 million).
In addition to these firsts, the Bulova watch has played a significant role in American culture in other ways. After Charles Lindbergh became the first person to make a non-stop solo flight over the Atlantic Ocean in 1927, the Bulova company celebrated his historic achievement by creating a watch in his honor, the Lone Eagle, and they received 30,000 orders for it within just a few days. It was soon known as “the most talked about watch in the world.”
Bulova Helped the United States Put a Man on the Moon
Later on, from the 1950’s and up through the 1970’s, the Bulova company played a very important role in helping NASA land our astronauts on the moon and getting them safely home. NASA used the technology breakthrough Bulova had created that led to its electronic Accutron watch and incorporated it into its computers for some 46 missions into space, using it in all their instrument clocks and timekeeping units. This partnership with NASA led to the creation of the Bulova Lunar Pilot Chronograph, one of the most famous and iconic watch models in history. (The original Lunar Pilot Chronograph, worn on the moon by astronaut David R. Scott, is the Bulova watch that recently sold for almost two million dollars.)
You can see why here at Avonlea Jewelry we’re so happy to be an authorized Bulova watch distributor. Not only does Bulova craft some of the finest watches available today; with the role they’ve played in getting astronauts to the moon and back safely, and with the significant impact the company has had on American culture, everyone who owns a Bulova watch owns an authentic piece of American history. Think about it - Is there any other watch company that can legitimately make the same claim?
Why Is a Bulova Watch Right for You?
Of course, its long and storied history is hardly the only reason to get a Bulova watch for yourself or a loved one, or even the main reason. Sure, it’s nice to own a watch from the company that helped land Americans on the moon, but that isn’t what most people think of as a main factor when choosing what brand of watch to get for themselves or as a gift. No, what matters most when choosing a luxury watch are elegance and reliability, and in both of these areas Bulova watches stand out from the pack.
