Since the start of 2020, it’s become increasingly clear that the latest trend to sweep the horological world is that of rereleases of iconic vintage models. And the latest watchmaker to get in on the nostalgia-evoking action is American outfit, Bulova, which has just reissued its classic Chronograph A — affectionately known as the “Surfboard” due to the oval encompassing the sub-dials – from the 1970s.

Priced at $695, the new Chrono A features a 40mm steel case, black or colored silicone straps — with color-matched sub-dials — a Miyota Caliber 6S21-00A quartz chronograph movement, and a dial and overall appearance that wonderfully recreates the ‘70s seafarer, albeit with a few contemporary twists such as noticeably rounder lugs. There’s also a limited-to-350 units version of the Surfboard. Built around a 38mm stainless steel case paired with a matching stainless bracelet and powered by a Swiss-made Sellita Caliber SW-510 mechanical movement with a 48-hour power reserve, the limited edition features blue “Surfboard” sub-dials set in a beige face and a Pepsi bezel, just like on the original timepiece from approximately half-a-century ago. Priced at $2,950, the Chronograph A “Surfboard” — which, like the quartz movement Chrono A, is water-resistant to 200M — also comes in a special vintage-themed gift box.

Purchase: $695+
