Archive Series Limited Edition Lunar Pilot Watch 96A312
On August 2, 1971, a Bulova pilot chronograph was worn on the moon, engineered by Bulova for the demands of the lunar environment. Now, Bulova returns to the design and updates it with an exclusive high precision quartz movement, continuing its legacy of precision timing with the men’s Bulova Lunar Pilot chronograph from the Archive Series, this time, with a unique dial that reinforces its spacefaring history. The Lunar Pilot chronograph features a 43.5mm sandblasted silver-tone grade 5 titanium case with polished accents, creating a dynamic and incredibly lightweight presence on the wrist. Slim chronograph pushers and a crown featuring the Bulova tuning fork logo are perfectly proportioned and ideally positioned at 3 o’clock. Under the flat sapphire crystal, the six-hand chronograph dial is meticulously crafted from genuine Muonionalusta meteorite. This 4.5-billion-year-old meteorite was discovered in Northern Scandinavia in 1906, and its varied crystalline pattern makes every dial unique. A black tachymeter ring offers contrast around the dial, which features a retro Bulova logo. The slim hands and applied markers offer exceptional legibility and are applied with luminescent material for low-light display. The black recessed, circular grooved sub-dials include a 1/20 chronograph seconds counter at 3 o’clock, running seconds with a sweep hand at 6 o’clock, and 60-michronograph counter at 9 o’clock. The Lunar Pilot is powered by Bulova’s proprietary high precision quartz movement, resonating at a frequency of 262khz for unparalleled accuracy and affording a sweeping chronograph hand. The watch is paired with a fitted black leather strap which features an easy release system for quick changes. This edition is limited to 5,000 pieces and presented with a storybook, limited edition card, and certificate of authenticity. The Bulova Lunar Pilot brings the past to the present with a design from space exploration history, perfect for the modern adventurer.
