Parking Meter ChronographApril 13, 2023 9:27 pm
In 1973 Bulova released a bizarre chronograph that earned a unique title and a cult status among collectors. The Bulova “Parking Meter” Chronograph was a large (for the time) bullhead design, meaning the pushers were at the top of the watch, like horns. Because of the movement inside, the caliber 12, the crown was on the opposite side at 6. A blue metal bezel connected them all with a strange shape, that was then pulled into the dial.
Powering the Parking Meter Chronograph is the Miyota 0S21. A Japanese quartz caliber it features stopwatch functionality, 24-hour time telling, a date, as well as standard hour and minute. The watch comes mounted to a rugged brown leather strap with channeled padding by the lugs for an aggressive style.
The Bulova “Parking Meter” Chronograph is limited to 5,000 pieces worldwide.
