The Bulova wristwatch was born in Bienne, Switzerland in 1919. Bulova Corporation came into fruition much earlier than 1919 in 1875, when a young immigrant from Bohemia, Joseph Bulova, commenced fabricating boudoir, table clocks and pocket watches in his tiny jewelry shop in New York City. In 1923 Bulova watches created history by revolutionizing watch servicing Ė each part of a Bulova wristwatch is built with such a precision that makes a certain part interchangeable with a similar part of any other Bulova wristwatch.
