Additional Information: 

Just finished this awesome mono-pusher chronograph. Easily one of my favorite Bulovas ever made. I got it with a broken balance, some broken cannon pinion gears, and just generally dull and neglected. After a full clean, new parts, oiling, a polish, regulating, and a new crystal this watch is looking and working like it should.

This watch has no db information but is known as a bulova One Button/stop Chronograph.

The watch is not mine and belongs to a very good friend who is a watchmaker. IT IS NOT FOR SALE.

There is one listed for sale on the bay with a buy it now of almost $700.00

The watch runs and has been timed to better than standards. It is 10K rolled gold plate and has little to no wear on it. If it was worn it was not often and was taken very good care of.

The dial is in surprising condition and has some small spots from ageing but nothing noticeable.

I thought it might be a good one to put in the db since it appears to be quite rare.

Additional Information: 

I've been sitting on this watch for a few years.  It used to be my Great uncle's and after it came into my hands i never gave it much thought.  After just recently getting into the show "Pawn Stars" and marathoning through the episodes on Netflix it rekindled my curiosity to find out what this watch is.

My research led me to this site and that the watch is a 1970 Chronograph C with its original band.

 

I would love to know if it is in good condition, how rare it is. and how much it might cost to get it cleaned up. It does run I'm just looking to get it cleaned and serviced. The metal band doesn't snap shut but it doesn't appear to be broken either so I'm gunna take that to the Jeweler to see if they can fix it.

 

Thanks for making this site available!

Additional Information: 

Inheirited from my wife's grandfather.  Came with the original mesh band, but it was too small for my wrist so I had a jeweler replace it with a similar, larger one.  It's in great shape, but needs a small amount of maintenance...it loses about 2 minutes per day, and I think the winding stem may have a slight bend - it's a little sticky when winding or setting.

Anybody have references for a reliable, reasonably-priced service for a tune-up?  It took me a long time to figure out exactly what I have, and now I'm a little protective of it.
