Bulova ‘Royal-Oak’ Ref. 4420101 Steel – 1980s


An interesting watch in terms of aesthetics and notoriety.
Obviously, this watch model is one of most well known designs amongst watch enthousiasts, yet the dial signature reading Bulova makes this piece somewhat peculiar. This icon inspired counterpart made my Bulova is a coveted timepiece, with its controversy in the world of horology by developing a watch entirely based on the model from a different brand. You have to keep in mind that back in the late 70s and early 80s, the RO from AP was not as well-known and loved as it is today. You could even say Bulova was ahead of its time by recognizing the beauty of the simplistic design by Gerald Genta. Scroll down to read more about this watch.



Well preserved 1980s Bulova ‘Royal-Oak’ in stainless steel with automatic movement.

This listed example remains in good unrestored condition with all original parts present, including the crown.
The ivory colored tapisserie dial remains in immaculate condition, showing absolute no signs of aging. The crystal is entirely scratch free.

The case and bracelet show normal signs of use corresponding to its 40/50 years of age, yet the bracelet doesn’t show many signs of stretching. The original crown is present which is showing wear and tear, as with all other refs.4420101 out there (poor production choice by Bulova, going for a chromed crown instead of a SS one).

The watch will conveniently fit a 17cm wrist, and has two removable links.

Case dimension: 36 millimeters.
