An Introduction

Hi. My name is Mike and I'm from Northeast Pa. U.S.A.  I'm not new to watch collecting or watch forums, for that matter.  Although my collection at this point consists mainly of Seikos, I have always  had a soft spot for Bulova Watches. I have been collecting watches most of my adult life.  As a kid,my uncle, who worked for Bulova had given me my first "real" watch as a communion gift.  It was a Bulova Oceanographer.  Over the years, the watch was lost.  A couple of years ago a good friend from another forum had gifted me the same watch.  This is one of the prized watches in my collection.  It's a '68 Snorkel(I believe it's a '68, the caseback is worn and it is difficult to clearly read the date code). I'd like to post a pic of the watch, but I'm having troubles doing so.  Also in my collection I have a '77 333 Oceanographer, as well as older Bulovas and Caravelles.  I actually stumbled across this site after researching a watch for a member of another forum(the watch was a 666 Oceanographer quartz model that I had never seen before).  I found this site very informative and joined.  As a collector, my watch collection is always ever changing.  I'm always on the hunt.  I guess it's the thrill of the chase kind of thing.  I would say that my grail would have to be the ever elusive orange dialed Snorkel.

 

Cheers!

Mike

Welcome to mybulova Mike, from another "old hippie"

Just don't blame us if your Seiko collection starts to get crowded with Bulova's... My Bell-Matic & Sports 200 Chrono are very out numbered..

Under the home drop-down tab will be a sub-tab labled "Add a Watch", click on that and you should be able to post yours.

Mike, we all look forward to seeing your collect here at myBulova. As Greg said please don;t hesitate to add them to your database. It'll give us a chance to druel and hopefully add to our ever growing database of vintage (pre 1980) Bulova watches.

I believe I have figured out how to post pix.  Here is a pic of my '77 333 Oceanographer.

 

 

And here is my ever elusive grail.

 

 

Cheers!
