The name Bulova has been around for over 100 years. It is a very well known name in the world of watches and clocks. It is a New York based corporation and was founded as the J. Bulova Company in 1875 by Joseph Bulova, an immigrant from Bohemia. It was renamed the Bulova Watch Company in 1923 and is now a part of the Loews Corporation. Bulova watch making was one of the first watch companies that made great innovations to clocks and watches. Bulova and The Bulova Company is famous for their horological innovations and watch making tools and most notably for the Bulova Accutron watch. Bulova was the first company to pay for a television commercial. This commercial cost the company $9.00 in 1941. It was a ten second spot during a baseball game between the Philadelphia Phillies and the Brooklyn Dodgers. Bulova watches are very well established in American history.

The Moon

The accutron movement is the action of the tuning fork between the two electromagnetic coils at the top of the watch. These accutron Bulova watches were first sold in October 1960. They use a 360-hertz tuning fork to drive a mechanical gear train. Bulova was the first company to use a transistor in a wristwatch. The company sold more than four million watches of this model and production was stopped in 1977. Bulova watches are also known as moon flight watches. Buzz Aldrin was not wearing a Bulova watch when he landed on the moon, but all instrument panel clocks and time-keeping mechanisms in the spacecraft on the moon space missions were Bulova Accutrons with tuning fork movements. The Bulova Company now makes a limited edition Astronaut model under its Accutron line of watches. The back of the watchcase is even autographed by Buzz Aldrin.

Bulova has several different lines of watches and clocks, but is very well known in the world for its time keeping pieces. There is a Lady Bulova watch that is very popular with the sports women of the world. Most of the Bulova watches were originally leather banded, but now can be found with stretch or attached bands. These Bulova watches have withstood the test of time and a person who starts with a Bulova always ends up with a Bulova. If you are looking to purchase a good watch then Bulova watches should be your first choice.
