Bulova is one of the most famous watchbrands out there. Founded by Joseph Bulova which immigrated from “Böhmen” to New York in 1875. In the beginning Bulova would produce their own watch cases marrying them to imported movements from Switzerland. The most iconic watch or movement is the Bulova Accutron tuning fork movement. Introduced in 1960 and developed by Max Hetzel, the tuning fork quartz movement was a huge step in the rising electric watch world, providing high quality and accuracy. Beside the Accutron Bulova produced several different diving watches and diving chronographs in the 1960s and 1970s.
