Bulova Corporation, renowned for a history of innovation and design since 1875, celebrated its 140th anniversary year in 2015. Honoring the past while looking to the future, the brand commemorated its history and showcasing its continuing commitment to innovation. The company highlighted its technological expertise with the expanded use of its high performance UHF (Ultra High Frequency) movement. The heart of the Bulova manufactured movement is the unique three-prong quartz crystal (torsional resonator), producing a vibrational frequency of 262 kHz, eight times greater than a standard quartz crystal.
Providing accuracy to seconds a year and featuring a signature continuously sweeping second hand, this exclusive movement, first introduced in 2010, and now incorporated into the Bulova Accutron II and Precisionist collections, will be extended to additional new Bulova collections including the upcoming Sea King and Military collections. As a unifying feature, starting this year, all watches featuring Bulova UHF will be identifiable by the vibrational frequency of 262 kHz badge printed on the dial.
The prominent timepiece launched in 2015 was Bulova Sea King Limited Edition – Water resistant to 1,000 meters and crafted in titanium, the Sea King limited edition chronograph, with automatic movement and helium release valve, will be available in a numbered, controlled production run of 500, and will come in special Sea King packaging, accompanied by a certificate of authenticity.
The Sea King Collection, in 316L stainless steel with Bulova’s exclusive, manufactured UHF (Ultra High Frequency) technology movement, includes chronographs and time-only designs, and features unidirectional elapsed time bezels, locking crowns and pushers, sapphire glass, and super luminous hands and markers.
