Bulova, a renowned watchmaker, has a rich history dating back to 1875 when Joseph Bulova, a young Bohemian immigrant, founded his company in New York City. In 1912, Bulova revolutionized the watch industry by introducing the first standardized production of timepieces, allowing for greater precision and affordability. They gained prominence in the early 20th century, with the creation of the iconic Bulova Accutron in 1960, the world's first electronic watch. This groundbreaking technology led to Accutron watches being used in various space missions, including NASA's Apollo program.
Bulova continued to innovate and introduced the Precisionist collection in 2010, featuring ultra-accurate quartz movements. Today, Bulova watches are known for their quality, style, and innovation, offering a wide range of timepieces to suit different tastes and preferences. With a legacy spanning over a century, Bulova remains a respected name in the watchmaking industry.
