Which “time signal” came first… Longines or Bulova?
A clever bit of ad copy makes it seem as though the “Bulova time signal” was first heard on radio in 1927. In truth, Longines got there first with the idea. Bulova does, however, have the honor of the first commercial announcement made on television.
