Bulova releases a new collection in honour of legendary entertainer Frank Sinatra.
In continuation of the brand’s deep-rooted history in music appreciation, Bulova is pleased to announce an exclusive collection of timepieces dedicated to one of the world’s most iconic vocalists, Frank Sinatra. Bulova’s support of music has been seen through its current partnerships with organizations such as The Recording Academy, Latin Recording Academy as well as through special initiatives like Tune of Time or with non-profit partner, Windows of Hip Hop.
The brand commemorates the importance of music through this new collection of timepieces dedicated to nine-time GRAMMY® Award winner, Frank Sinatra.
“Our commitment to music includes many talents, many genres, many voices. Who better than ‘The Voice’ himself, Frank Sinatra, to continue to showcase our dedication and appreciation for the art of music and its ability to transcend time,” says Jeffrey Cohen, President of Citizen Watch America.
Frank Sinatra’s daughter, Tina Sinatra, adds, “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.”
Bulova Frank Sinatra collection
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 was the sponsor. The singer was also known to be a wearer of Bulova timepieces throughout his life. Paying tribute to the legendary performer, Bulova draws design inspiration from the 1950’s and 1960’s with unmistakable branding elements of the famed musician. The Frank Sinatra collection features an assortment of ten timepieces in a variety of case shapes and designs, each of which are named after some of his most beloved songs.
The first pieces are two tank-styles known as My Way. The novelty pieces are showcased in either a stainless steel or gold-tone stainless steel case.
The gold-tone version features a silvery white dial with a black calf strap while the stainless steel option is shown with a black dial and grey calf strap. Both pieces are powered by a Miyota Caliber 1L45 Quartz movement and feature gold-tone hands, numerals and indices.
