On August 2, 1971, a Bulova chronograph was worn on the moon, engineered for the demands of the lunar environment. Now, Bulova returns to the design and updates it with an exclusive high-precision quartz movement. It continues its legacy of precision timing with the men’s Bulova Lunar Pilot chronograph from the Archive Series. The Lunar Pilot chronograph features the same 43.5mm silver-tone stainless steel case as the original Bulova chronograph. Slim, blue chronograph pushers and a crown featuring the Bulova tuning fork logo are positioned at 3 o’clock. Under the flat sapphire crystal, the six-hand chronograph dial is rendered in a blue-and-silver panda design, with a blue tachymeter ring and retro Bulova name. The slim hands and applied markers offer exceptional legibility and are applied with super luminova for low-light display. The recessed, circular grooved sub-dials include a 1/20 chronograph seconds counter at 3 o’clock, running seconds at 6 o’clock, and a 60-minute chronograph counter at 9 o’clock. The Lunar Pilot is powered by Bulova’s proprietary high-precision quartz movement, resonating at a frequency of 262khz for unparalleled accuracy and allowing a sweeping chronograph hand and running seconds hand. The watch is paired with a matching 3-link silver-tone stainless steel bracelet with a push-button deployment clasp and a fitted leather strap, both of which feature an easy release system for quick changes. A modern interpretation of a historic timepiece, the Bulova Lunar Pilot is the ideal watch for today’s explorer.
A movement featuring a 3-pronged quartz crystal with a frequency of 262 kHz that is 8 times greater than standard quartz, leading to an accuracy of seconds a year.
