The realization of a great American dream began in 1875 when Joseph Bulova, a 23-year-old immigrant from Bohemia, opened a small jewelry store on Malden Lane in New York City. This modest enterprise was to evolve into one of today's preeminent watch and clock companies. In 1911, Bulova began manufacturing boudoir and desk clocks, along with fine pocket watches, which he made and sold in unprecedented numbers. During World War I, wristwatches were issued in the military for their greater convenience. Returning veterans brought home the new fashion - and a new market emerged. Bulova timepieces use only the finest materials, precision, craftsmanship, and state-of-the-art technology for enduring quality and performance. At the heart of each Bulova watch is precision accuracy. From the finest quartz movements to alternative technologies such as solar or mechanical energy, each Bulova watch is guaranteed to be accurate to within one minute a year. Every Bulova is anti-magnetic, shock-resistant, and features the company's unique distortion-free and scratch-resistant Dura-Crystal. Only Bulova offers the range of styling and the scope of products to meet everyone's needs. From the sporty Marine Star Collection to diamond watches and heirloom-quality timepieces, Bulova has a watch or clock that will complement your style.
