Bulova, a prominent American watch brand, has a rich history that dates back to its founding in 1875 by Joseph Bulova, an immigrant from Bohemia (now part of the Czech Republic). Joseph Bulova opened a small jewellery shop in New York City, and this marked the beginning of the Bulova brand. The store quickly gained a reputation for quality and innovation in watchmaking. Bulova opened its first manufacturing plant in Biel, Switzerland, a hub for watchmaking excellence. This move allowed Bulova to combine Swiss craftsmanship with American innovation.
Bulova introduced the Accutron, the world's first electronic watch. It utilized a tuning fork instead of a balance wheel, providing unprecedented accuracy and setting new standards for timekeeping precision. Bulova has continued to innovate, introducing new technologies and designs while maintaining a balance between tradition and modernity. The brand is known for its diverse collection of watches, catering to various styles and preferences.
