Bulova MIL SHIPS 98A265
Bulova Watch archive series LIMITED EDITION Swiss Made model 98A265. Limited Edition of 1000 pieces globally.
Brand new to the Archive Series, the mechanical automatic Limited Edition MIL-SHIPS-W-2181 — only 1,000 were made — is based on a prototype that was never commercially launched, making 2021 the first time watch enthusiasts will have the opportunity to own this luxury timepiece. The sport watch was inspired by a timepiece developed for the U.S. Navy, and it has a unique paper strip on the dial that indicates if moisture has entered the watch, and will change color should the water resistance — up to 200 meters — ever start to fail. Another unique feature of this watch is that the top ring will only rotate once it is pressed down. The black matte dial is set into a stainless steel case, and has a black NATO strap made with a finely-woven nylon material made to withstand continuous contact with water.
The 98A265 features a Stainless Steel case of 41mm with a thickness of 15.1mm and a lug width of 16mm. The watch uses Anti-Reflective double domed Sapphire crystal. This watch uses the mechanical Calibre SW200. Additional features include a water resistance rating of 200m and Luminous hands and markers. Bulova 98A265 is Made in Switzerland.
What we love: The history of the watch and how such a basic piece of paper on the dial makes it such a standout with the capabilities. The helmet packaging and the limited availability makes this a must have Bulova for any serious collector.
