Great to see this noted manufacturer digging into its archives, most recently with the 1970s Bulova Surfboard Chronograph watch.

You might recall Bulova reissuing the stunning Computron LED watch last year, another timepiece from the 1970s, but very different from the one here.

This one is officially named the Deep Sea Chronograph and if you want to buy a vintage one you are looking at a lot of money. Not that I am suggesting this new version is cheaper in either incarnations, but it is a lot cheaper than getting one of those older watches.

The ’nickname’ for this one comes from a rather obvious detail. Yes, that dial. Or rather, the dial within the dial, which has the look of a surfboard and is perhaps why this watch is still talked about and sought after all those years on.

There are two new versions of the watch. Not that you could tell from a distance. The devil is in the detail.

Opt for the limited-edition and you get a Sellita caliber SW-510BHb automatic chronograph movement, as well as the original colour scheme, which means a cream dial, navy blue ’surfboard’ and the two mini dials, all packed into a stainless steel case with a sapphire crystal covering.

If you want to spend less then one of the three quartz models is for you. Take your pick from a choice of a red and blue bezel with blue dial, red and black with cream dial, and an orange and blue with a cream dial. All with a stainless steel case, water-resistance up to 200m a Miyota Caliber 6S21-00A quartz movement.

You can secure a limited-edition from 1st April and is likely to sell for an eye-watering £2,500. If you want to pat less, the remaining styles are available now, priced around the £449 mark.
