Bulova introduced a number of new timepieces this year with the obvious hero piece being the resurrected Devil Diver. However, among the many Precisionist, Rubaiyat, and CURV updates being delivered in 2018, there was one automatic that caught my eye during Baselworld and has since flown firmly under-the-radar.
The Wilton 60-Hour Automatic Classic, set within the Classics Collection, is an affordable and attractive automatic entry into the brand’s core lineup. A time-only model with an open heart between 6 and 8 o’clock, the watch features a blend of contemporary design choices that range from the mix of Roman numerals and bar indexes to the stamped guilloché motif in the center of the dial. At 12 o’clock, the Bulova tuning fork logo makes an appearance to hammer home the brand’s longtime pursuit of accuracy and general accessibility. Inside the watch, the 21-jewel Japanese movement boasts a 60-hour power reserve and is exclusive to the brand. The price ranges from $550-$695.
