The company was very successful for many years since they always focused on quality but also had an eye for innovation. This company achieved many accomplishments for watches including the first watches to have a tourbillion and mechanical winding which is something that is seen on most if not all watches today.

Crafted high-quality stainless steel or steel plated with luxurious rose gold, the watch is not large-41mm at diameter. The bezel, which is uni-directional rotatable, looks quite elegant, though the design is not so novel. The dial is also very interesting to look at. The small rounded date window at 3 o’clock position features a half ring at the left side. This design is quite experimental and a bit controversial. Any way, it does some help to balance the entire dial and make the date window more attractive. The dial, with nicely textured dial, has hand-applied hour markers. The bright yellow second hand, with lovely design, is pretty eye-catching. Fitted with a large watch crown, the diver watch by Bulova is water resistant to just 100 meter.
If you are looking at something beyond crystals, watches is an excellent options. Some excellent companies make one of the finest watches in the world.

On top of all their innovative designs and creations, the Audemars Piguet Company felt that there was a niche in the watch industry that was missing: sports watches. By 1972, they launched the Royal Oak collection which was quality sports watches. These watches used stainless steel and had a rugged appearance due to the octagonal shape of the face of the watch. Even this design, these watches have several functions like the classic watch and included 600 different parts. Some of the functions include the perpetual calendar, the minute repeater and the split second chronograph. This was definitely the first luxury sport watch.
However, the scene was different almost 100 years ago. People were never found wearing expensive wristwatches, instead rich men always carried pocket watches, with a gold half-hunter, which was the status symbol at that time. Women also wore pendants attached to their jackets and corsets. Wristwatches were known as Wristlets and were mostly worn by women at that time.
