As time goes by

With all the recent "discoveries" and new information that has come to light, I've noticed that members are posting their "Treasures"  including movements and datecodes that vary from what's listed in the database. Take for example a 8AE movement that WAS listed in the database as 1941 to 1950. As I found a watch movement 8AE with a shield date code making it a 1939, I corrected the listing and inserted a note indicating when the change was made and why. As new info comes to light I feel we all need to update OUR DATABASE to reflect the changes and hopefully narrow the unknowns and questions we all know and love as "Bulova"...

Thanks for reading, Bob

Thanks Bob.

Could I also ask that everyone look from time to time at the Bulova Movement listing and add any new movements or update date ranges for existing movement models.

This llist will ba a greater asset to us all if we can actively keep this it updated.

Movements in this list can also have comments/discussions placed against them.

You welcome Admin. I've added a few new movements over the last few months as they come up, one other thing I've been doing is new movements or variations of the date code, I copy the the pics of the ones I find and put them in a file on my hard drive in case they're needed later.

Yep, there's no option to add an image to the current ( hint ) intial movement listing but by adding a comment I've also been adding a movement image.

That's a terribly good Idea! One legible picture for each movement would be a great research tool. Also, the watch models associated with the movement should/could also be listed.

Nice idea, if we weren't talking about Bulova watches :-)

Added two new 1958 movements today, apparently "sock drawers" everywhere are getting emptied quickly!
