Antique Bulova Watch History
Joseph Bulova, a young immigrant from Czechoslovakia, started a small jewelry store in downtown New York City in 1875. In 1912 he set up a factory in Bienne, Switzerland to produce and assembly jeweled watch movements. The corporate name Bulova Watch Company, Inc. was adopted in 1923. The revolutionary new concept of mechanical standardization was perfected shortly thereafter. By making every part in a Bulova watch with such precision that it would interchange with like parts in other Bulova watches, servicing was greatly enhanced. In 1927 The Bulova Watch Company was listed on the American Stock Exchange.
