Despite Bulova’s successful introduction of the Accutron electronic movement in 1960, the company by no means abandoned their mechanical watch production. This watch incorporates the firm’s efficient and well-designed calibre 11ANAC which was part of a series of automatic movements produced for several years with and without date apertures. The case has typical design elements of the period with a broad tonneau shape and a satin finished bezel. However, it is the dial layout that is particularly effective with bold black hour indexes contrasting with a matt white surface, all complimented by subtle yet dominant red accents in the form of a crosshair and centre seconds hand. We have fitted the watch with one of our steel Milanese watch bracelets.
This watch is accompanied by a Bulova presentation case and card outer box – the new bracelet is parallel rather than tapered so the clasp is a little wider than the recess within the maker’s box meaning it will not currently sit flush within the box’s holder.
