In 1949 Bulova
signed a 4 year contract and
agreement as the
watch supporter of the televised Academy Awards. Bulova paid the
Academy $145,000 for this license. To commemorate this relationship
in 1949 they began the 1st production run of the Academy Award
watch. The relationship only lasted 1 year when the Academy sued Bulova
to force them to stop production of the watches that were using
advertising terms as "Academy Award Winners".
one of the ads run with words stating
“Famous Bulova Fashion Academy Award Winners” that helped to cause
the Academy Award / Bulova Lawsuit.
The extremely low production Ladies Academy Award "H" is shown in
the ad above
By 1952 all new production had ceased on all Academy Award watches. Many
sellers today will try and pass off a simple 1949-1953 period Bulova as an
original "Academy Award Watch". The originals are 21 Jewel
movements. The case should be
marked A9, L0, L1 or L2 only.
There were a small handful of 1953 (L3) models made,,, but
VERY few that were still in the factory at the end of the
the years we have seen these SUPER SCARCE 100% original Academy
complete with original special Academy Award boxes & hang tags command over $2500 at auction!!
