You know I was always a bit sad that I sold Lisa my last Jet Star.  It was unique and I didn't realize at the time how rare they were.  The one she has is the only other one I've come across.... until tonight!  BOOM!

With the orignial Bulova band as pictured in the ad baby!!!  Unlike the other one... this one is running and I'm going to have Timemachines give it a thurough scrubbering and this will be a new daily wearer for me!

(breaks into song) Reunited and it feels soooo goooooood!(/endsong)

This is a fantastically 70s watch. The hands are amazing. I got this with the quickset not functioning properly and in need of a good cleaning and new crystal. I love when the original finish is still visible on these kind of watches and they aren't just polished to death.
