Hack Watch won’t keep time

This watch has not been able to keep time since I have gotten it. Loosing hours in just a day. I emailed Bulova they told me all I needed to do was wind it. Which I knew that and that was not true. They then told me it will be 45 days to repair and they will still more than likely charge me for the repair.

A+

Online pics don't do this watch justice, and functions perfectly. A+++.

Great Simple Watch

I was looking for a simple watch that I could wear anywhere as I transitioned away from a smart watch. This watch is a great size, light weight, mechanical action, and looks great. I've enjoyed wearing it and often forget it's on. Glad I saw this looking through the catalog and grabbed one! It's a great watch!

Explain Hack

As a US Navy Instrumentman and mechanical calibration technician in the 70's, I was also a Navy watchmaker. This original watch was made by Hamilton, Benrus, Gruen, and a couple others and they were all the same style. But the purpose of a "Hack" was a mechanical lever that stopped the balance wheel and thereby stopped the watch so a group of military people could synchronize their watches for whatever reason. By pulling out the crown (winder) the hack stops the watch while you set it and then at the same time everyone pushes the crown back in which restarts everyone's watch to the same time. Just like in the movies!

Bulova Respuesta We appreciate you sharing your knowledge of Hack watches, and thank you for your service! Bulova has a storied military history, including the production of action-ready watches commissioned by the U.S. government for soldiers during the Second World War. Among their contributions was the iconic ‘A-11’ specification navigation watch, commonly known as the ‘Hack’ watch. These watches had to meet strict accuracy standards, and as you noted, the 'hack' feature allows the second hand to stop when the crown was pulled, enabling synchronization for coordinated missions. Bulova takes pride in its military history, and our collection of military-inspired watches is a reflection of that legacy.
