Bulova has created a collection of watches dedicated to Frank Sinatra.
Bulova’s connection to Frank Sinatra began in the 1950’s during The Frank Sinatra Show television program, also known as Bulova Watch Time, which the brand sponsored.
The singer was also known to have worn Bulova timepieces throughout his life.
“No one respected time more than my father, he never liked to keep an audience waiting. He often said, ‘If you’re not early, you’re late.’ Dad’s association with Bulova spans over six decades and we are proud to continue the relationship into the 21st Century,” says Frank Sinatra’s daughter, Tina Sinatra.
There are ten watches in the collection, which draws inspiration from styles of the artist’s heyday in the 1950s and 60s, five of which will be on sale in the UK.
Three round watches are named Fly Me To The Moon. They have fluted dials in black, white and silver with the Sinatra signature at 6 o’clock. Prices range from £499 for a steel finish to £549 with a gold coated case.
Two come from the Young at Heart range of tonneau-shaped gold-plated watches in brown or white sunray dials selling for £469.
All five watches use Miyota 8215 automatic movement that can be seen through an exhibition caseback.
