General Omar Bradley's Special Bulova Accutron

General Omar Bradley's Special Bulova Accutron

Finding an actual Bulova Accutron watch owned and worn by five star General Omar Bradley was a surprise. I knew that Bradley, who rose to command the U.S. First Army during World War II, had been Chairman of the Board of Bulova from 1958 to 1973, and that watches bearing the five star insignia had once existed, but of these watches there was no sign – no photographs, even on Bulova enthusiast websites.

The wife and I started watching "Patton" last night. Bradly was a good guy from all I have read before.

And that Bulova is sexy as hell.
