Bulova Watch Company

 

The Bulova Watch Company dates back to 1875. It is then, a young 23 year old Czech immigrant, by the name of Joseph Bulova, opened a small jewelry shop on Maiden Lane in New York City. By 1912, Bulova sets up its first plant in Bienne, Switzerland to produce watch components and assemble them into jeweled movements.

The convenience of wristwatches (as opposed to pocket watches) was discovered during World War I (WWI). So, Bulova introduced its first full line of men's jeweled wristwatches in 1919. Prior to the men's line, the wrist watch was designed and primarily worn by women. So in 1924, Bulova unveils the first full line of ladies' watches, including diamond accented pieces. And what style and elegance these Bulova watches possess.
