Safian & Rudolph Jewelers Now Offering Bulova Accutron Watches


Philadelphia, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/10/2013 -- Safian & Rudolph Jewelers, one of the most extensive jewelry stores in Philadelphia, is pleased to announce that they are now offering the prestigious line of Bulova Accutron watches for him and her. The Accutron line of watches used to use a special tuning fork that turned the hands of the watch.

The inventor of the Accutron watch, Max Hetsel, joined Bulova in 1948. The Accutron is considered the first electronic watch and had a high pitch hum noise instead of the traditional ticking sound. The vibrating tuning fork that makes a watch an Accutron, is also what is responsible for the humming noise. The Accutron was the first precise wristwatch; before the Accutron, the smallest watch was a pocket watch. Although Accutron was able to make a precise wristwatch, it was expensive to produce.

In 1969, the Seiko Astron was the first quartz movement watch. The quartz movement watch was cheaper to less complicated to manufacture and thus was the first mass-produced wristwatch on the market. This was very unfortunate for Bulova as Seiko was able to produce more watches and at a much lower price point than Accutron. Today, Bulova’s Accutron watch is actually powered by Swiss quartz movement, which may be misleading to a watch enthusiast searching for a true Accutron watch. Bulova’s Accutron watches are considered sophisticated and are highly sought after in today’s marketplace. Bulova has proven itself to be a leader in wristwatches with its long history of mastering the precision of the wristwatch.

When searching for the perfect wristwatch as a gift of for one self, visit the jewelry store in Philadelphia to see an extensive collection of Bulova’s Accutron watches. Safian & Rudolph Jewelers also offers engagement rings, wedding rings, anniversary rings, earring, bracelets, necklaces, and pendants.
