I found this quite interesting... 1950's ad

I don't know the exact date on this... but it was a two paged ad.  Bulova movements and Elgin movments in what seem to be high end diamond ladies cases?  Was this a partnership at one time I'm sure?

Usually when your looking at recases your looking at old Anchor brand or some of the others.... but these seem very specificly marketed as a bit higher scale?

I haven't done any research on the Allerton brand... as I'm feeling quite lazy tonight and have a job interview in the morning I'm studying for.

To answer your question, No it wasn't a partnership, private mfg. buying and using Bulova movements in their own cases.  IN REALITY, it was a Lawsuit I saw where Bulova sued and it was 1964 and heres the link:http://law.justia.com/cases/federal/appellate-courts/F2/328/20/418547/
