Bulova Moves Headquarters to Empire State Building

Bulova Moves Headquarters to Empire State Building

Postby koimaster » May 5th 2015, 4:45pm

Bulova today adds another chapter to its historic ties to the city of New York, where Arde Bulova founded the company 140 years ago only five years after arriving to the U.S. from what is now the Czech Republic. Operating for decades in Woodside, Queens, where the firm will retain back-office operations, Bulova today celebrates the finalized move of its executive, administrative, marketing and design offices to a full floor of the Empire State Building.

The new space is a perfect home for our expanding portfolio of watch brands, and signifies a new period of growth for the company,” said Bulova President Gregory Thumm. “Moving back into the center of the fashion capital of the world provides us with a renewed energy and creative spirit while honoring our company’s Manhattan origins.” To officially celebrate the move, Bulova will host an opening event party on Tuesday for friends and partners. An honored attendee will be Sir Alex Ferguson, the most successful soccer manager in history and former manager of Manchester United, for whom Bulova is official timekeeper.

The new office features an open workspace on the 29th floor with 360-degree Midtown panoramas and a reception area with displays set up as a rotating exhibit. Its hand-painted floor features the exposed-dial design of the original Bulova Accutron Spaceview.

Well, I'm glad they've stayed in NYC. I used to pass the Woodside HQ every day.

I had to order a part from there recently and they are great to deal with. The lady went above and beyond to find the bezel for me and it was sent to me in 3 days. She did mention that they were in the Empire State Bldg.

I was told yesterday by an AD that while the HQ moved to Manhattan, the service center remains in LIC.

Also, as we were the first to notice a few months back, Bulova Accu-Swiss is kaput.
