Bulova dating watch

In 1926 Bulova sponsored the first nationally broadcast radio commercial, signaling the hour with "At the tone, its 8 o'clock BULOVA time." Again in 1941 Bulova proved itself as an advertising innovator when it ran the world's first TV commercial: a simple ad showing an outline of the United States with a superimposed Bulova clock and the caption "America Runs on Bulova Time".

Most Accutrons were produced as wristwatches, but Bulova also produced an Accutron pocket watch for a brief period in the 1970's.

Facilities included a medical department on school premises which housed an infirmary, dispensary and exercise room.

The services of a physician, physical therapist, full-time registered nurse and a "physical medicine consultant" were provided free to the students.

The ultra-thin "Phantom" model, produced in the 1920's, was a finely-made, platinum-cased pocket watch that is prized by collectors today.

Bulova was an innovative company, and can be credited with many industry "firsts." They were the first watch or clock company to broadcast and advertise on the radio, and later became the first to show a commercial on television.
