In 1875 Joseph Bulova, a 23-year-old Czech immigrant, opened a small jewelry shop on Maiden Lane in New York City.  By 1912 Bulova had set up its first plant dedicated to the production of watch components and their assembly into jeweled movements in Bienne, Switzerland.  In 1923 the name Bulova Watch Company, Inc. was adopted.  Bulova perfected a new concept in the watch industry of total standardization of parts. Every part of a Bulova watch was made with such precision (standardized to the ten thousandth of an inch) that it was interchangeable with the same part in any other Bulova watch. This revolutionized the servicing of watches in the industry. The Bulova Watch Company went public on the American Stock Exchange in 1927.

This is an excellent example of a very rare Vintage Bulova Sky King timepiece. The watch was made to honor T-A-T Maddux planes who in conjunction with The Pennsylvania Railroad spanned the North American continent in 48 hours.  It features a 14K 2-Tone Gold Plated case with classic lines. This watch was made in the late 1920's.  It is triple signed and measures 37mm end to end and 28mm wide, including the crown.  The 14K 2-Tone Gold Plated case is in excellent condition with very crisp details.  The movement is a 17 jewels Swiss made Bulova 10AN which sets and winds smoothly and is running well and keeping excellent time.  The dial is stunning,  featuring a fantastic white face with raised gold numerals that compliment the beautiful and correct period hands.  The crystal is in excellent condition.  The back of the case has a(H.L.P.) personal engraving and is in excellent condition.  It is marked on the inside BULOVA QUALITY PAT JAN 11. 1927.  Comes fitted with a brand new 16mm leather strap.  This watch is very hard to find in this condition and will make an excellent addition to any collection.  

This is a beautiful example of a rare  14K Gold Plated Vintage Bulova Sky King watch that is almost 80 years old.
