Bulova Founded in 1875. The Bulova "Accutron" Debut in October 1960. This special movement which used a 360 hertz tuning fork instead of a balance wheel works super. Max Hetzel was the inventor and came to Bulova in 1948. The tuning fork was powered by a one-transistor electronic oscillator circuit. This made the Accutron one of the first electronic watches.
The tuning fork movement was a horological insurrection. This Bullova Accutron is one of the finest of these watches and should bring great praise amongst other Accutron watch collectors.
