 AND it needs work!?! Watching it all week, really thought it'd go in the $5-700 range. What was I thinking? 

Already own seven chrono's (four bulova) , working on #5 right now (bulova) dang I want one of these so bad.....

Not the coolest chrono Bulova made but a pretty close second......

Yeah it's pretty much called the Bulova Bullhead.  I've had my eye open for one for awhile.  Parts ones go for like $400 I've seen.  Suxor...

Something about that 773 movement is pretty sought after or something one guy told me.

Geoff,

I'd need a 3rd eye to keep up with the 'C'

Caught this 'old skool' Military 2 reg very similar to the one above at a 50% off sale.
