Product Description

Brand new to the Archive Series, the Limited Edition MIL-SHIPS-W-2181 — only 1,000 will be made — is based on a prototype that was never commercially launched, making 2021 the first time watch enthusiasts will have the opportunity to own this luxury timepiece. The sport watch was inspired by a timepiece developed for the U.S. Navy, and it has a unique paper strip on the dial that indicates if moisture has entered the watch, and will change color should the water resistance — up to 200 meters — ever start to fail. Another unique feature of this watch is that the top ring will only rotate once it is pressed down. The black matte dial is set into a stainless steel case, and has a black NATO strap made with a finely-woven nylon material made to withstand continuous contact with water. This unique watch is versatile enough to be worn every day, but has the features to stand up against any other sport-style watch on the market today.

History, Comfort and Conversational.

I bought this watch for the history, but was really surprised how much I enjoy wearing it. The strap feel and dimensions make for an incredibly comfortable wear. The domed crystal commands compliments and conversations.

Great job Bulova.

I just bought the Mil Ship limited edition and love it. I love the history of it and I am so glad that Bulova did not change the original design. I collect watches including several of the Bulova archive series and this is definitely one of my favorites.

Great brand with awesome history!

I have had my Mil-Sub for several months now and couldn’t be happier. It stands alone from my 15 or so other watches. I bought both versions and the Swiss version is by far the superior hooves and worth the extra investment. A lot of reviews I watched and read said the bracelet was to small ant felt off. Well I disagree it is a historically accurate representation of the originals. The quality of the strap is my favorite part when comparing the Swiss vs. Non. This would be a great add to anyone’s collection no matter if you went Swiss or not but for me it’s Swiss all the way!
