Bulova Watches: Best Sellers and Staff Picks

Bulova Watches: Best Sellers and Staff PicksFor over a century, the Bulova Watch Company has been making both innovative timepieces and the news. Charles Lindbergh got one for flying nonstop across the Atlantic. Bulova made the watches that astronauts wore while they walked on the moon. Today, Bulova watches are still on the market and as popular as ever, including the ones that are part of their timeless Frank Sinatra Collection.


You might look at the history of the Bulova Watch Company and decide it is a luxury brand. The truth is Bulova has a stellar reputation for offering affordable watches with fine detailing and high accuracy. They are good, solid, durable watches, well-crafted and expensive-looking, but sell at mid-range prices.

That doesn’t mean they don’t appeal to some big names, though. Bulova’s relationship with Mr. Frank Sinatra began in the 1950s. The brand was one of the sponsors of the crooner’s television show. The singer was known for his famous Bulova watches that he wore on and off the set. Sinatra was a fan of the Bulova brand throughout his life.

Bulova decided to honor this legendary performer with branding elements linked to him, including his signature on the watch's face and iconic felt hat. Bulova named the designs in the Frank Sinatra Collection after his songs, as well.

Bulova timepieces don’t have the high-tech bells and whistles found on some watches today, but not everyone needs step tracking and GPS. People own Bulovas because they are known for their quality. Consider some of the best of the best from the Frank Sinatra Collection.


The Fly Me to the Moon watch features a 39-mm cushion case construction and fluted dial. You’ll find this elegant style in two distinct designs -- a simple steel case and one with a gold-tone style. Each has alternating Arabic and pyramid-style markers and no minute ring. The Fly Me to the Moon watch has pike-styled hour and minute hands along with a pointer for seconds and a textured strap for added elegance.


The first two offerings in the My Way series are tank styles with leather straps reminiscent of the Sinatra era. Each is powered by a Miyota Caliber 1L45 quartz movement. They also feature gold-tone hands and numbers.

You can find them with a round stainless steel case if you prefer. It features automatic movement and pops with a black dial and gold numbers.


The Best is Yet to Come timepiece design includes a 40mm round case. The elegant gold-tone automotive watch has a black textured leather strap. It also offers an exhibition case back that shows off the Sellita SW215 mechanical movement. The sapphire crystal has an AR coating and is water-resistant to 30 meters.


The Young at Heart series features a tonneau-shaped case and a Miyota Caliber 8215 automatic movement. The gold-tone design comes with a black leather strap and gold numbers along with an exhibition case back to show off the details.
