The iconic “Stars and Stripes” Bulova Chronograph C from the 1970’s has been reissued under the ‘Archive Series’ for a new generation. Rather than reimagining this classic chronograph, Bulova is retaining the original design right down to the red, white, and blue dial & hands.
Just like the original, the new Bulova Chronograph C ($750) has a 46mm stainless steel case with coin-edge details. Under its anti-reflective domed sapphire crystal, the dial shows three sub-complication faces for a six-handed chronograph complete with tachometer scale and hour track. The white hour & minutes hands are capped with a red arrow-tip point reminiscent of rockets and inside is a proprietary high-performance quartz movement with 262 kHz vibrational frequency.
The new Archive Series watch comes with a stainless steel mesh bracelet with fold-over buckle closure, as well as a blue leather strap. The Bulova Chronograph C is water resistant to 150′ and comes in a special edition presentation box.
