Joseph Bulova, the company's founder, emigrated from Bohemia, in what is now the Czech Republic, at the age of nineteen, arriving in Manhattan to a world brimming with opportunity. He opened his own jewelry store in 1875 on Maiden Lane in Lower Manhattan, then the nucleus of New York City's jewelry industry. He called it J. Bulova, and quickly distinguished himself from the hundreds of jewelers in the district.
Today, nearly 140 years later, the Bulova name is still running strong and continues to be an industry leader in beautiful, quality watches for men and women. A wide selection of contemporary styles along with great price points make Bulova a popular choice for todays everyday timepiece.
