Within the framework of the Gemini programme, a Bulova Accutron clock with a 24-hour display was incorporated into the instrument panels aboard the modules, participating in eight missions.
Distinguished by reliability and precision, the new Bulova Accutron watch is set in a 42mm stainless steel case. Its structure incorporates a cambered anti-reflective sapphire crystal and a transparent screw-down back. The model is water-resistant down to 50 meters.
Housed in the case is a black dial, adorned with undulating guilloche motif. It reveals willow leaf-shaped hour and minute hands, joined by a red-tipped large seconds hand. The latter is fitted with a tuning-fork counterweight.
The display of each new Bulova Accutron Gemini watch also comprises 12-hour, small seconds and 30-minute counters, located at 6, 9 and 12 o’clock respectively. The well-balanced design is completed by day and date exhibition windows at 3 o’clock.
Animating the functions is an automatic ETA 7750 Valjoux movement, embellished with 25 jewels.
The new Bulova Accutron watch is coupled with a stainless steel bracelet, terminating in a double-pusher folding clasp.
The model can also demonstrate a silver-toned dial, combined with a brown leather strap. Additionally, the brand offers a version with a black dial, enclosed in a PVD-treated rose gold case.
