Founder of Bulova Watches, Joseph Bulova, emigrated at the age of 19 from Bohemia, in what is now the Czech Republic, arriving in Manhattan in 1870 to a world brimming with opportunity. Opening his own jewelry store in 1875 in Lower Manhattan, then the nucleus of New York City’s jewelry industry, he called it J. Bulova and quickly distinguished himself from hundreds of jewelers in the district with quality and innovation in technique and artistry. ┬áThe company continues today in that tradition of innovation and artistry. ┬áThe Watch Pocket Jewelers can assist you in finding the perfect Bulova watch.
