The Bulova Curv ‘breaks’ all the rules

Watch manufacturer Bulova breaks all written and unwritten rules with the unique Curv watch. A curved timepiece, that can’t be true. Bulova proves that it is possible. Because Bulova has a long history of unique watch innovations that no one thought possible.

Bulova, an all American innovator

In the Netherlands, the Bulova brand is perhaps a little less known, but in the United States it is one of the most respected and best-known watch brands. From the moment founder Joseph Bulova opened his first store on Maiden Lane in Manhattan in 1875 – then the center of New York’s jewelry industry – his vision has made Bulova one of the most innovative watch brands in the world.
A true ‘All American’ innovator, Bulova developed the first clock radio in 1928 and shortly after, in 1931, the world’s first electric clock. In the 1940s, Bulova had an intensive relationship with the US Army under the motto ‘To serve those who serve us’, for which they developed special hack and pilot watches.

But Bulova’s most spectacular innovation came in 1960, when they developed the first fully electronic wristwatch; The legendary Accutron, with an accuracy of two seconds per day. Unique for the time when only mechanical watches existed.

But even in this new century, Bulova still brings special watches to the market, such as the unique Curv with curved movement.

Revolutionary ergonomic design

Bulova introduced the Curv in 2016 at the largest watch fair in the world in Basel.

The revolutionary design is a strong piece of engineering, because the chronograph movement has a curved shape. The case profile is nevertheless slim, and the curved shape ensures that the watch fits ergonomically around the wrist.

The steel strap of the watch has also been specially developed for wearing comfort. The brushed steel has striking openwork elements.

The recesses in the dial – which reveal the screws of the movement – give the dials a machined look, refined with steel or rose gold accents.

You can expect the usual high standard from Bulova from the High precision quartz movement with a 262kHz vibration frequency.

The latest addition to the Curv family – the 96A257 – will be released at the end of September. The barrel-shaped case with openwork dial gives this modern chronograph an industrial look.
