BULOVA BULLSEYE NOS CALIBER 12 AUTOMATIC 44MM STAINLESS STEEL NEW OLD STOCK AUTOBulova
For auction is a Bulova Caliber 12 chronograph in absolutely stunning new old stock condition. In 1969, a group of esteemed watch companies got together to produce the first automatic chronograph. Called Project 99, the upshot was that the new movement used a base Buren 1281 Intramatic with a micro rotor. The chronograph module, designed and produced by Dubois Depraz, was fitted to the back. The resulting chronomatic movement was a technological tour de force, with jumping half hours on the hour recorder and a semi-quickset date that is actuated by moving the hour hand back and forth between 10 and 12. This particular Bulova dates from 1972 and is one of the rarer chronos with the Caliber 12. Called the "Bullseye" by collectors, due to its design of concentric colored rings on the dial and subdials, it's a big colorful chronograph that is very appealing. The bonus is that it is in dead stock nos condition. The case is as sharp as the day it was made, with a beautiful sunburst finish on the wide bevels. Caliber 12 chronomatic watches are increasing rapidly in the market. Don't wait on this gorgeous nos example of a really cool Bulova

Dial: The dial on this Bulova is a real work of art. The main dial is a very appealing grey-purple with black minute track, a red on white seconds track and an inner pearlescent white tachymeter bezel. The subdials are a very interesting khaki color with blue numbers on a white ring. The design of concentric circles earned the watch the nickname "Bullseye." The handset is equally nice, with thick black tapered subdial hands, black and white tritium-filled baton hour and minute hands and a long orange triangle for the chrono seconds. The hands show no wear and look to us like they have never been off the watch.
