Hello,

I am wanting to know about my bulova finger watch. I took it to a jewler and he had never seen anything like it. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

It is platinum with 30-33 diamonds. Its mechanical workings are 17 jewels.

Platinum and diamonds usually = $$$

A good sharp focused picture of the movement will be the only way to age the watch....ring.....wing.....thing

Is that an L8 or L6 on the movement?

The back of the case has 900 plat and 100 iric. I have had it tested and its platinum. I can not find any information or anything that is even comparible to this.

Can anyone?

I have seen Bulova watch rings come and go over the years, so I know this wasn't a one-of-a-kind custom job.  I have a vintage gold and diamond Omega ring watch.  But I have not seen any hint of these in the ads.

Hi,

The ring is most likely custom made.

Are there any markings on the inner or outer caseback to indicate the ring segment itself was produced by Bulova?

I really have seen quite a few of these for sale on the Bay.  For a while I was really interested in them and had a search set up to alert me of new watch rings for sale.  It was never terribly difficult to find a lady's watch ring produced by one company or another.   If it was a custom job, there were a lot of similar custom jobs.

I am still looking for information regarding this ring. No local jewelers are able to give me any info. Can anyone?

Thank you for your time in advance.
