The vintage military-inspired Bulova MIL-SHIPS-W-2181 Submersible powered by the 82S0 automatic movement.

The vintage military-inspired Bulova MIL-SHIPS-W-2181 Submersible powered by the 82S0 automatic movement.

Brand new to the Archive Series, this 41mm sandblasted stainless steel cased MIL-SHIPS-W-2181 is based on a prototype that was never commercially launched. 2021 was the first time watch collectors had the opportunity to own this luxury timepiece that is true to its original form and function.

The sport watch was inspired by a timepiece developed for the U.S. Navy, and it has a unique paper strip on the dial that indicates if moisture has entered the watch, and will change color should the water resistance — up to 200 meters — ever start to fail. Another unique feature of this watch is that the top ring will only rotate once it is pressed down. The black matte dial is set into a stainless steel case along with an anti-reflective double domed sapphire crystal.  It is matched with a slate blue NATO strap made with a finely-woven nylon material made to withstand continuous contact with water. Powering the 98A266 variant of this functional dive watch is the self-winding Miyota 82S0 movement.

This unique watch, originally designed for the U.S. Navy, is versatile enough to be worn every day, but has the features to stand up against any other sport-style watch on the market today.

Bulova is an American brand that dates back to 1875. It’s been around since the days of Joseph Bulova and his business of selling clocks and watches in New York City. His innovations included standardized production of watches and developing the first fully electronic watch with proprietary tuning-fork based technology, the basis for their iconic high-frequency Accutron timepieces, and now, their Precisionist watch and movements.
