At some point Bulova Accutron 214 movement got a Calibre Numbering System Change as follows Accutron 214 = 2140, Accutron 214H = 2141, Accutron 214HN = 2142 And a forth Calibre 2143 was added, Although I've never seen a 2140 movement because the Swiss never made a 214 without a hack spring...

Here is one of the Swiss made Accutron 2141 movements I just recently acquired, It's an N6...

Excellency Presentation Box

Hello ! New to the forum!! Just acquired an Excellency "DD" without it's original box and wondered if anyone knows the correct presentation box it would have come in. Would like to start looking for one. Have seen some marked "Excellency" but are not sure if they are ladies only  boxes or if they came as a unisex model - or- if the men's even had  a specific one or if they came in the general "Bulova Fifth Avenue New York" that is common.  By the way - love the website and thank all of you in advance for any information!!

60s Astronaut X-15 Strap

Hi everyone, 

I lost where I posted this in a thread about an early Astronaut, so I thought I'd ask again. 

Has anyone a good picture or seen a real-life example of the 17" Bulova X-15 pilot strap? (Would it be on display in any museum?)

I've seen a few pics here on the forum, but none that are very detailed.

We've all seen the glamourous watches that have come out of the Bulova Academy Award Series indivudually, but I don't know if we've seen all the them together and have seen some of the history on how they were marketed as well as their demise.

Just using newspaper articles I'll share what information I've learned.
