On a lighter note.

I'd like to take a moment and thank the administrators and members of mybulova.com. Initially as I enrolled as a member My personal collection of Bulovas stood at Six a number which had held in check for several Years and the intention was to simply share those pieces. Post membership this collection has now exploded, rapidly, to 20, and counting, ( I think there's one in the mail.) These various models and years, seemingly from the 1920's, 30's, 40's and 50's are now occupying an entire corner of My living space at different levels of restoration along with scraps of paper containing hurridly written notations of movement calibres, serial numbers, crystal dimensions (a special thanks to William for that one) and production date codes. These are fun times, the dog hasn't been fed in weeks and sleep? who needs that. The gratification that comes from the persuit, identification, restoration and owning one (or more) of these mechanical and aethetically pleasing masterpieces makes it all worth while.

Thank You Gentlemen, this website is simply the best.

+1 ..... I too have been "Chasing the Bulova shaped Dragon" over the past several weeks now!

I've been doing nothing but looking around at old watches... checking pawn shops.  Researching stuff online.    It's safe to say....

Well like I said, Jerin... get a 12, 18, 24, etc. capacity store & display case... And then start SELLING one for every new acquisition... once you MAX OUT the pillows or slots!? (Easier SAID, than DONE???)

Well I'm RESELLING most of the best ones, as I can always source more (in theory) later???? (Psych...) And then I can keep sniping MORE... (100+ BULLYs alone, in the last six months) and also "ID"  more, so noone can ever break my record????? LOL...

THIS SURE BEATS LOOKING FOR THAT "UNKNOWN" HAMILTON (30 years LATE) EH??????

I just wish the HECK I had a "backer," so I could INCREASE to no. of snipes, per a month, x 2- 4 ?!?

(Just sniped another 8- 10 more "unknowns," in the past two weeks, alone...)

Gentlemen, your coins are in the mail.

I'd also like to take this opportunity to appologies to the spouses, including my own for the hours we spend on eBay trolling for Bulova beauties. The other 'Lady' in our lives.

Again may I say....is anyone from Bulova reading this???
