Bulova watches have been around for over a hundred years, so they've had quite a bit of time to establish a reputation for excellence. Founded as small jewelry store in 1875 by Joseph Bulova, a 23-year-old immigrant from Bohemia, Bulova watches became an American household name by the 1920s. Bulova was the first to market a full line of men's and women's jeweled wristwatches and the Bulova company remains one of the premier watch manufacturers today.

A Guide to Bulova Watches

Bulova watches are made according to a strict set of guidelines to ensure top-of-the-line quality and flawless performance. Only superior materials (think stainless steel, hardened gold, premium quartz and fine leathers) are used in the manufacturing process, and each Bulova watch is guaranteed to keep accurate time. The only margin for error permitted is one minute per year!

Because the Bulova company recognizes the different needs of different Americans, they manufacture a variety of high quality watches. Some of the more expensive Bulova watches are studded with diamonds and the bands are made of gold. However, other Bulova watches are designed to be more practical--leather bands and simple, sport-inspired faces are also more affordable.

To make the selection process easier, Bulova divides their watches into different lines. Some of the more expensive lines, like the Caravelle line, appeal to those who want diamonds and gold on their watches, while the less expensive and more sporty lines, like the Marine Star line, will suit those who want a less flashy wristwatch. All of the Bulova watches fall into one of the following categories: career, classic, fashion or sport.
