A Bulova Accutron Spaceview, Reference 7396, Which is the Cushion or TV Cased Reference with the Calibre 214 Movement from circa. 1973 with the N3 Year Code.

Bulova was founded and incorporated as the J. Bulova Company in 1875 by Bohemian immigrant Joseph Bulova. It was reincorporated under the name Bulova Watch Company in 1923, and became part of the Loews Corporation in 1979 and sold to Citizen at the end of 2007.

 In 1912, Joseph Bulova launched his first plant dedicated entirely to the production of watches. Manufacturing watches at their factory in Biel (Switzerland), he began a standardized mass production new to watchmaking. In 1919, Bulova offered the first complete range of watches for women and men in 1924. The visual style of his first popular advertising made its watches popular with the American public. But beyond the original style, precision and technological research also became imperative for Bulova. In 1927, he set up an observatory on the roof of a skyscraper located at 580 5th Avenue to determine universal time precisely.

Bulova established its operations in Woodside, New York, and Flushing, New York, where it made innovations in watchmaking, and developed a number of watchmaking tools. Its horological innovations included the Accutron watch, which used a resonating tuning fork as a means of regulating the time-keeping function.

What’s On Offer 

The watch is in excellent condition having just come back from a complete overhaul and new battery fitting by a Bulova specialist. The watch comes on its original fitted Bulova bracelet with reference 10811, which is also in excellent condition with 22 links that will comfortably fit an 18 cm wrist with room for adjustment either way!  The watch comes paired with a vintage Bulova box.
