Bulova Revives 1970s Parking Meter Chronograph

Bulova is adding a favorite from the 1970s to its Archive Series, the “Parking Meter” chronograph.

Originally released in 1973, the bullhead chronograph earned its name due to its dial configuration  that sees its central blue-on-silver dual-time dial and small seconds form the shape of a parking meter.

While the original watch was powered by an automatic movement, Bulova has opted for a Miyota quartz movement for the 2022 limited edition of 5,000 pieces.

The uniquely shaped case is made of stainless steel, surrounded with blue ion-plated outer ring, while the hands are picked out in bright orange.

The chronograph pushers sit at the top of the case, either side of the crown at the 12 o’clock position, which is used to adjust the time and date, while a second crown sits at the six o’clock controlling the second timezone.

When it drops in the fall, the Bulova 2022 “Parking Meter” Chronograph will individually numbered and supplied on a padded brown leather strap with blue-grey stitching, priced £449 GBP ($536 USD).
