Based on a prototype originally designed for the U.S. Navy in the 1950s, the MIL-SHIPS-W-2181 submersible timepiece was never commercially launched. Discover its history and shop the reissued collection.
Bulova made space history on August 2, 1971--during the Apollo 15 mission, a moon pilot chronograph, customized for lunar conditions by Bulova engineers, was worn on the moon. We reissued the Lunar Pilot collection inspired by this original, including a 50th Anniversary Limited Edition.
Inspired by history, Chronograph A pays tribute to popular Bulova chronographs from the 1970s. The distinctive surfboard-shaped oval connecting two smaller round counters on the dial earned the original design its memorable nickname: Surfboard.
The bold design of the Chronograph C burst on the scene in 1970 and quickly became one of Bulova’s most iconic timepieces. This reintroduced ‘Stars & Stripes’ watch is specially packaged in a collector’s box that includes a blue leather strap.
