Characteristics of BulovaInnovation, style, precision—these are the qualities that have defined Bulova timepieces since Joseph Bulova founded the company in 1875. Bulova has been a pioneer of watch technology ever since, including developing the first fully electronic watch in the world and producing the first radio and television commercials of timepieces ever aired. Many advancements in science, including the first clock radio, NASA timepieces, and the first designs for an automobile clock, have come from Bulova engineers. The company remains driven by the same principles the company was founded with and will continue to push innovation in every field.
