Bulova Classic Swiss Made 10k RGP Vintage 1968 Mens Wristwatch....33mm
Originally founded in 1875 as a jewelry store in New York by Joseph Bulova. For the greater part of its history, it operated as a United States importer of Swiss movements and parts, casing them in the United States. It soon became one of the largest producers of watches in the country, manufacturing watches by the millions. In the 1930s, parts production began to shift to the United States, and during WWII, Bulova received defense contracts to produce millions of watches for United States servicemen and women. In 1960, Bulova released the Accutron, the first “electronic watch”, powered by an electronic circuit, wherein a tuning fork replaced the standard wristwatch balance wheel. The Accutron was accurate to within roughly two seconds per day, far more accurate than other timepieces of the era. Bulova began to experience major financial setbacks in the mid-to-late 1970’s and eventually was purchased by Citizen in 2008

This is a vintage used watch. It has lived a life before you, so you should not expect it to be new and flawless. If you want a flawless new watch, please do not buy this. If you want a piece of history in the form of a nice vintage piece, or possibly a dated inscription on the case back, then this may be right for you. Because most vintage watches being offered are between 30-70 years old, small imperfections, scratches, and wear are to be expected
