Aerojet Hands and crown

Does anyone have hands and a crown or know the number for an AeroJet with, i believe the case number 2703?

Aaron,

The Hands necessary are deternined by the movement model, style, colour and length.

some styles, not all shown here: http://www.mybulova.com/vintage_bulova_hands

I beleive there is reference dating into the 1960's in the catalogue section (?)

 

Case 2703:

Movement - 11ALC

Crystal - 1334-1

Crown - 342W

Gasket - G710

Thanks for the info! Something must be wrong with the case number, because although it is stamped 2703 on the inside caseback, movement is a 10BZAC. Does that make sense? While I could not find the hands in the reference guide linked above but perhaps this picture will help?

a humdinger.

Does the datecode on the 10BZAC match the datecode of the Case?

We have the 10BZAC listed in the Movement database as 23 and 30 Jeweled auto's. I believe the Aerojet was 17 Jewels automatic (someone will correct Me if I'm wrong) which still does not match the Case catalogue?

You are entirely right. Please excuse my idiocy, and disregard the statement about the movement. I mixed up two different movements on my bench. The Aerojet in question is a manual.

OK, We're both wrong.

The Aerojet is manually wound. So the Movement matches the Case reference - 11ALC ?

We need to determine which Hands those are, Luminous something?

As a thought:  International Dial Co. can refinish the existing Hands.

The movement does match the reference as an 11ALC. They were certainly luminous, but unfortunately with the oxidation they might be beyond repair or relume

I have a Bulova signed 342 but it doesn't say 342W. The W is usually an id for the white gold or stainless steel parts. This crown is white and looks to be the right crown. If you still need one I will ship this to you and you can try it. Just PM me.

Does anyone happen to have a Bulova crystal for the automatic Aerojet, crystal stock # 1334-4 (case 2704 - white)?

Also, looking for a set of hands for it, 11ALAC silver luminous pitched Dauphine, around 26mm, similar to the photo above.

Thanks! Ken
