Reintroducing the Chronograph C
The daring design of Bulova’s Chronograph C burst on the scene in 1970—an era defined by decadent modernism and rapid-fire space-age explorations. The watch quickly became one of Bulova’s most iconic timepieces—and is now being reintroduced as part of our Archive Series.WATCH VIDEO ▶︎
These Days the Right Time Isn’t Enough
Patriotically nicknamed the Stars & Stripes, the Chronograph C represented a "new frontier" in design. Remarkably bold red-tipped hands, reminiscent of rockets or fireworks, glowed against an intricate navy blue and white dial. These bright pops of color and "wow" design elements were never before seen on a watch face.
The Modern Revival of an Icon
The new Archive Series Chronograph C drips with space-age style, and like the original, is destined to be coveted by cult collectors with a passion that’s out of this world.
Function meets Form
A brawny stainless steel case measuring 46mm and a notched bezel, the six-hand chronograph function is fully loaded with sub dials, tachymeter scale and an hours/minutes track.
The heavy-gauge stainless steel mesh bracelet allows the lug-free case to stand boldly. A stamped vintage Bulova logo on the buckle, adds to this ultimate expression of high-tech futurism and individuality that is the Chronograph C.
The Chronograph C comes in a Special Edition boxed presentation which includes an alternate choice of strap in navy leather.
