Finding success in its recent reissues of some the brand’s most iconic archival pieces — including the Computron and the WWII Hack watch — American watchmaker Bulova is now bringing back yet another legend: the ’70s Deep Sea Chronograph A aka the “Surfboard.”
The grail of the release is a limited edition mechanical piece, equipped with a Sellita caliber SW-510BHb automatic chronograph movement. It carries the most iconic color scheme of the collection with the retro Pepsi bezel, a cream-toned dial and a navy blue surfboard pattern in the center housing the two subdials. The case is constructed in full stainless steel and sized at a more vintage 38.5mm, with a sapphire crystal on top, altogether providing a water-resistance of 200m.
For those looking for a more affordable option, Bulova has also released three standard quartz models, distinct only it their two-tone color schemes: a red and blue bezel with a blue dial, a red and black dial with a cream dial, and an orange and blue bezel with a cream dial. All three measure in at a slightly larger 40mm stainless steel case with a water-resistance of 200m as well, but powered by a Miyota Caliber 6S21-00A quartz movement.
The quartz editions of the Bulova Deep Sea Chronograph A “Surfboard” are now available for $695 USD, with the special edition automatic coming April 1 for $2,950 USD. Head over to the brand’s website to learn more now.
