NEW YORK, May 5, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Having debuted in Bulova Accutron II and the Precisionist collection, Bulova's proprietary high performance UHF (Ultra High Frequency) movement is now being extended into its Sea King and Military collections.
The heart of the movement is a three-prong quartz crystal producing a vibrational frequency of 262 kHz, eight times greater than a standard quartz movement. UHF provides unparalleled accuracy and features a signature continuously sweeping second hand. All designs featuring UHF now have "262 kHz" indicated on the dial, as well as the UHF logo on the caseback.
