Bulova Jet Star c. 1972



Straight from the original 1970's Bulova advertisement:


"They've got names like a supersonic plane and the instincts of a mother"


"We named them for the way they look: parts of an instrument panel.  But we love them for the way they act: like a bunch of fiercely maternal little white haired ladies who take care of you without expecting much care in return.  Giving you the right time, and instant change date and day.  While you give them bumps and splashing, and never wind them.  They don't mind the neglect.  Whenever you need them, they gave you what you need.  Thats love"


Wow, gotta love 70s ad's, haha.  Alright, enough of blabber, now check out those super cool hands!!
