Lucky 'Bulova' is only 6 letters long otherwise it would have not fitted on the dial...just squeezed in the name!

admin,

I'd assume the movements are a bit of a challenge!

 Is that a 3an calibre or the longer 4al etc calibre.  I have a white Lady Bulova like the yellow you posted a few days back. What a tiny movement the 3an is!

Gary,

not certain, I can't get the movement free from the caseback without fear of damaging something at this time.

The Case is longer than the Lady Bulova, so possibly a 4 series. - 'dainty' to say the least.

I recently accquired one of these from my best friend eBay, but cannot open it to save my life! I don't want to break it--you say it "snaps" on and off? Is it hinged on the top or bottom or something? Argh... Must invest is a magnifying glass.
