  • THE BULOVA ROYAL OAK MYTH

    The other night I was watching a show with Tim with a myth buster segment. (The video is linked below @ 10:34 he explains the Bulova was an unauthorized AP design knockoff. Gerald Genta did not offer that design lawfully to Bulova nor did Audemars Piguet say it's cool, rip us off to no end.)

    From the proud maker of the very first electronic wristwatch come a slew of clones! I know that I have mentioned the Bulova “Royal Oak” before. There’s one for sale on Ebay (click here). What the exact historical context is, we don’t know. Some rumors even say that Genta offered this design to Bulova, before selling it to Audemars Piguet. Whether that’s the case or not, Bulova has found “inspiration” from other brands on another occasion. It seems that the proud American firm dialed down in the rolodex to the section marked “R” for these. Tell me if they remind you of anything?

    If destruction be our lot, we must ourselves be its author and finisher.
