Established in New York City in 1875, Bulova's uncompromising pursuit of excellence has produced signature timepieces, renowned throughout the world for their superior quality and precision. Today, Bulova celebrates the past as it embraces the future with a distinctive, retro-modern design. Inspired by their famous Spaceview watch from the early 1960's, the Bulova Accutron II Collection features the Alpha 2014 — an updated version of one of the very first electronic watches! The Spaceview was a marvel of the time — the "dial-less" face revealed the inner mechanism of the tuning fork-based watch. Though conceived as a training aid for retailers to learn how the new electronic watches worked, it proved so popular, Bulova decided to produce them for its discerning clientele. Now, enjoy that retro look (or something a bit more traditional) with cutting edge accuracy in our new timepieces featuring Bulova's exclusive Ultra High Frequency Movement. Combining the smoothness of a mechanical watch with the accuracy of a unique, three prong quartz crystal, the proprietary quartz torsional resonator movement vibrates at 262,144 Hz, six times more than a standard quartz movement for exceptional precision! And, the higher frequency movement powers a smoothly sweeping second hand, not the "ticking" type seen on most quartz watches. Stainless steel screw-back case, highly scratch-resistant mineral crystal, and super-luminescent hands and markers, the Accutron II Alpha 2014, crowned with Bulova's tuning fork logo, provides everything you want from a timepiece...and more!
Alpha 2014 — nothing interrupts the smooth lines of the Alpha's distinctive shield shaped case, with a recessed crown and streamlined lugs. Open skeletonized dial mounted on a leather strap with double-press deployant strap closure — a retro look that's thoroughly modern. Stainless Alpha on Black "Alligator" Leather Strap. Water resistant to 100 feet; 3 year warranty. 42 mm case.
