Bulova Precisionist Smooth Glide Seconds

Pursuing the Ultimate Accuracy in Timekeeping

Last March at BaselWorld 2010, Bulova Corporation, a subsidiary of the Citizen Watch Company, introduced its newest technology platform, Precisionist, the world’s most accurate watch with a continuous sweeping seconds hand.

“Bulova is committed to upholding an extraordinary legacy of excellence in design, style and technology and is proud to introduce its newest technology platform, Precisionist,” stated Dennis W. Perry, Bulova Corporation President.” He continues, “The importance of accurate time measurement cannot be understated. In horseracing, a horse wins by the tip of a nose, in swimming, the slightest touch of a fingertip ahead of a competitor can earn a gold medal. In timekeeping, absolute accuracy has long been viewed as an important measure of the quality of a timepiece.”

Precisionist was developed by Bulova in cooperation with Citizen. Bulova added a third prong to a standard two prong quartz crystal creating a torsional resonator. This innovation results in eight times the vibration frequency of a traditional quartz watch resulting in the most accurate watch with a continuously sweeping second hand. The technology is accurate to 10 seconds per year as compared to most other quartz watches, which are accurate to fifteen seconds per month.

The collection, now available in stores, retails at an MSRP range of $299 to just under $1,000.
