Hey Stephen... lookit what I found!

Gentlemen, I give to you my 1931 Bulova Lone Eagle...

 This is just an initial suprise and I'll ad it to my watches after a bit.  Won it off Ebay last week for $83.00 rediculously good shape.  Needs a cleaning and runs when laying down for some reason but stops when upright.  I'm not trying to be ornery.... just excited to get one of these!  Woot!

I'm telling ya..its addictive! Be careful....once you start you won't wanna stop.

Very nice. I have one of these but I need to fix it up.

Look forward to seeing it added and getting all its details in the database.

Entered now... I'm going to try to get it serviced in the next several weeks.  For some reason it won run unless it's lying on it's dial downward.  Then it runs fine until I pick it up.  A balance issue maybe?

Anyway, I thought it was a good find and for the condition i think I stole it!  Call the POLEESE!  Haha...

A common problem and probably due to a broken balance staff on one end.

See how much it will cost to get fixed and then let me know I may have a 10AE balance staff somewhere which is compatable with the 10AN.
