A Closer Look at the Bulova Moonwatch Re-Edition

The introduction of the re-released Bulova Moonwatch is the brand’s salute to the famous example in the line that earned the distinction of being the only privately owned watch to make it to the surface of the moon. The updated modern edition is presented for enthusiasts who may long to travel to the stars as well as for those who can appreciate a re-edition of the famous space watch that made history.

The Bulova tradition

Bulova is a well-known brand that falls below the standards set for high-end luxury timepieces, but that isn’t its highest aspiration. The company is committed to producing high-quality watches in a variety of styles and models while keeping them at prices that are affordable for the average person. The Bulova Moonwatch Re-edition is one such piece that is offered for sale to the public for just $550. Affordable luxury is something that Bulova has excelled in accomplishing.

What makes the re-edition so special?

The Bulova chronograph that was worn by Captain Dave Scott on the surface of the moon was sent to auction recently and the final and winning bid placed its current value at $1.62 million. To celebrate the event, Bulova has released its offspring in the Bulova Moonwatch remake that looks exactly like the space watch that came back to earth as a celebrity.

The specifications of the Bulova Moonwatch chronograph

The case features a graceful curvature and measures 44mm in width. It’s made of stainless steel material and it’s waterproof up to 50 meters. The chronograph pushers are elongate and stylish with easy operation for the chronograph function. The watch is protected with a sapphire crystal that has been coated with AR for excellent readability and resistance to light glare. The date indication a subtle yet readable function which is located at the 4 o’ clock position on the dial which is fashioned in a rare monochromatic color scheme.

The movement

Inside the special celebratory edition Moonwatch, the proprietary quartz chronograph movement is beating at a high frequency, causing the second’s hand to move with a graceful sweeping action. The accuracy of this high precision movement is rated with an accuracy of seconds in a year’s time. It’s a Bulova caliber 262 kHz type previously called a “UHF” which stands for ultra-high frequency, and although the name has been changed, the function remains identical. This caliber is one of the most highly regarded chronograph movements in terms of accuracy. The battery life of the movement is approximately two years.

The Bulova Moonwatch in review

The 2016 edition of the Moonwatch is regarded as a precision timepiece that offers a chronograph complication that delivers on aesthetics and performance. Perhaps the most impressive feature is the Bulova tradition of excellence in crafting a unique timepiece that offers precision timekeeping, good looks, durability, a host of special features and it’s offered at a reasonable price. Bulova enthusiasts are pleased with the release of the special edition because the timing is right for the arrival of a watch that takes us back to an exciting time in the development of the technology of our nation. Our space program was thriving and the period of the 1960s was a prosperous time where anything seemed possible. Bulova is bringing back a touch of nostalgia along with a modern update with a new precision movement.

Two versions of the Bulova Moonwatch are available

The Moonwatch re-issue has been released in two versions. The first features an attractive metal bracelet in stainless steel and a three-link style. The second variant of the Moonwatch comes with a leather strap that has been textured to resemble a fabric weave material. The closure for the strap edition features a hook and loop with velcro style fabric in black. The closure is a thick and durable metal with a patch of brown leather that is emblazoned with the Apollo 15 mission date and the 262 kHz which indicates the speed of the quartz movement.

The strap version of the Bulova Moonwatch is available for $550 and the metal bracelet edition is offered at $675. This modern revisitation of the nostalgic vintage chronograph that made it all the way to the moon and back is a commemoration edition. It reminds us of how far we’ve come since that time in history.
