Bulova Military Hack Automatic

Post by koimaster » March 7th 2020, 12:31pm

Bulova has launched a new Military Hack Automatic inspired by the brand’s vintage 3818-A milwatch, produced in the 1950-1960s when they supplied wristwatches to the U.S. military according to milspecs 3818-A and 6433-A. The 3818-A had, as the name of the new homage model indicates, a hacking seconds.

The 3818-A was intended to be used for general purpose duties. One variant was characterised by a dial with twelve hour markers, outer 60 seconds markers, and lumed spade-shaped hour and minute hands. A second variant had a dial with both 12 hour and 24 hour markers/ rings but no 60 second markers, and lumed spade shape hour and minute hands.

All three variants of the watches supplied by Bulova had stainless steel cases produced by the Star Watch Case Company. They were 32mm and 40mm lug-to-lug, with a decagon case back.
