This is a rare opportunity to own a piece of horological history.
The Bulova model A-15 was an experimental watch developed for World War II Army Pilots but never reached full-scale production. This is one of only 500 known to have been produced and distributed for testing purposes in 1944.
More information can be found about the original A-15 and the new Bulova re-issue at Bulova here or Hodinkee here.
