Bulova manufactures some really nice, durable watches made of good materials and at prices where everyone can participate.

Today we will review the 6 most popular Bulova clocks.

Who Is Bulova?

Bulova is an American watch brand founded and incorporated as the J. Bulova Company in 1875 by Bohemian immigrant Joseph Bulova.

The name was changed to Bulova Watch Company in 1923 and became part of the Loews Corporation in 1979.

The brand is now owned by Japanese multinational conglomerate Citizen Watch Co., but its headquarters is still located in New York City, United States.

Although Bulova claims to have been the first manufacturer to offer electric clocks beginning in 1931, the Warren Telechron Company actually began marketing electric clocks as early as 1912.

During the 1930s and 1940s Bulova grew tremendously in popularity, not least thanks to their series of rectangular plated watches whose case was strongly curved to better fit the curve of the wrist.
