During WWI, the Tavannes Watch Co was approached by two British submarine commanders to consider the construction of a watch suitable for work on submarine decks awashed in water. This watch was supposed to be water-tight, non-magnetic, and the balance wheel had to be of a material shows a minimum of expansion and contraction with variations in temperature. The face had to be legible at all times. In 1917 the first waterproof wrist watch was born, made by the Tavannes Watch Company.

NECKER’S JEWELERS

IS A LOCALLY OWNED FAMILY JEWELER THAT’S BEEN OPERATING IN THE QC AREA FOR OVER 120 YEARS!

N

ecker’s new store designs incorporate a large showcase area complete with lounging areas and diamond viewing rooms. They offer private consultations and vow to go above and beyond for each and every customer. The large showcase areas make it easy and convenient to view the growing display of beautiful jewelry. Founded by Joseph Bulova in 1875, Bulova remains an iconic brand at the storefront of today’s timepiece industry—forever pursuing a profound history of firsts. Today, Bulova is driven by the same core principles of craftsmanship, innovation and technology that guided our visionary founder over 143 years ago. Bulova offers an expansive selection of watch styles for all occasions, including dress, sport and casual wear, at fair prices that further identify the brand as affordable luxury. With four distinct movements—quartz, automatic, CURV and Precisionist—there is a watch for everyone.

“WE HAVE HAD A WONDERFUL PARTNERSHIP WITH BULOVA OVER THE PAST 50 YEARS. They have had great management and sales people who have always supported us in the past and continued support today,” said D.J. Necker of Neckers Jewelers.

“Bulova trains our staff, sets up the product and now has Bulova University to help refresh sales staff and keep them up to date with the latest information. Bulova has always had friendly service and a rep will always help.” On his favorite watch, Necker said,

“I LIKE THE MARINE STAR, YOU CAN WEAR IT EVERY DAY WITHOUT WORRY.” In addition to hard copy catalogs and training manuals, Bulova offers interactive online training capabilities through Bulova University. Bulova University allows Bulova to create, deliver and track all training activities in a single platform. Completing the courses benefits retailers by increasing their knowledge and confidence in presenting Bulova products and services. Bulova also provides merchandising guidelines for stores, ad collateral and visuals, and digital assets for social usage.
