(NEW YORK) – Having debuted in Bulova Accutron II and the Precisionist collection, Bulova’s proprietary high performance UHF (Ultra High Frequency) movement is now being extended into its Sea King and Military collections.
The heart of the movement is a three-prong quartz crystal producing a vibrational frequency of 262 kHz, eight times greater than a standard quartz movement. UHF provides exceptional accuracy and features a signature continuously sweeping second hand. All designs featuring UHF now have “262 kHz” indicated on the dial, as well as the UHF logo on the case back.
Bulova has long been passionate about state-of-the-art engineering. Founded in New York in 1875, the global brand made history with Accutron, the world’s first fully electronic watch in 1960.
“With 2015 marking Bulova’s 140th year, we are taking some time to acknowledge our extraordinary history of firsts in timekeeping, showcasing the spirit of innovation and the design excellence that has kept us at the forefront of the industry for so long,” notes Bulova President Gregory Thumm. “Our strength is our continuing pursuit of technological advancements. The UHF movement is another example of our commitment to innovation, bringing the company firmly into the future.”
