RAPAPORT... Bulova Corporation introduced a watch with a case made from 24-karat gold as a special edition timepiece from the company's Bulova Accu•Swiss brand. It is the first edition in the company's Joseph Bulova Collection and it was recognized by WatchPro as the 2014 "Innovative Watch of the Year."

The watch was conceptualized by Bulova's president, Gregory Thumm, and relies on a proprietary process that enabled Bulova to harden 999.9 pure 24-karat gold, while maintaining exacting quality standards for finish and fit, and ensuring water resistance to 30 meters below the surface, according to the branbulova, gold watchd.
 
"The 24-karat gold special edition watch is a true testament to the legacy of Bulova's founder, Joseph Bulova, and his unwavering dedication to innovation and craftsmanship," said  Thumm.
 
Crafted in Switzerland with a sporty flair, the timepiece was constructed in a unique capsule form, with bezel, case and caseback anchored together with light and durable grade-5 titanium components. A separate sub-bezel, designed as part of the case, keeps the watch secure with a series of specially designed bumpers to deflect shocks and holds a sapphire crystal with five layers of anti-reflective coating.

The registered strap design combines two material layers: an alligator strap and a 316L stainless steel mesh bracelet, incorporating three microns of black titanium carbide. The two layers are fixed together with a series of grade-5 titanium rivets designed to slip within the mesh to maximize flexibility and comfort.

Each Joseph Bulova Collection First Edition 24-Karat Gold Timepiece contains a 26-jewel automatic movement, certified as a chronometer by the Contrôle Officiel Suisse des Chronomètres (COSC).
