Bulova Men's Watch ACCUTRON II ALPHA One in Stock Branded Wristwatch

Heard of Bulova? The name might ring a bell. If you consider yourself a full-on watch buff, the history of Bulova is worth knowing, because it’s one of those brands of firsts; not just for mechanical innovation, but also for creating an operational model that most brands still follow today. Bulova standardised the mass-production assembly line in watchmaking, debuted the world’s first line of men’s jewelled wristwatches, broadcast the world’s first radio advertisement, broadcast the world’s first television advert and, most importantly, developed the Accutron movement.

There is a but, though, and it’s an unfortunate one: the Accutron II isn’t a tuning fork movement. Based on the company’s Precisionist movement, it’s actually a hi-beat quartz movement, which performs with six times the accuracy of a standard quartz movement and retains the sweeping second hand of the original. The open dial doesn’t have as much going on as the tuning fork Spaceview, but it still retains a level of interest and quality that leaves no doubt as to the heritage of the piece.

Nice, you may be thinking, but not nice enough to splash out a few thousand pounds on. Well, you won’t be spending a few thousand pounds on one — no one will. At a shade under £350, Bulova has placed the Accutron II well in the ‘go on then’ arena, offering a fresh slice of watchmaking history that won’t break the bank. A watch that’s actually cheaper than you expected? Now that’s another first.
