Bulova was founded and incorporated as the J. Bulova Company in 1875 and strived to be a pioneer of its time. The "Parking Meter" took its name from its arched 30-minute sub-register located at 12 o'clock, which closely resembles what parking meters once looked like. Typically on a standard chronograph, you can expect pushers to be on the side of the case by 3 and 5 o'clock, but on a Bullhead the pushers are placed on the top of the case with the winding crown at 6 o'clock.
