One of my favourate 1930s Bulova watches...the Bulova President, with wondering second hand.

Case suggests 1936.

I look forward to seeing this one restored to its original glory.

The acrylic crystal you need is a G-S PY875. It could be difficult to find one because I don't think G-S makes this crystal any longer. There's a member on here named Verista that has a huge stock of glass crystals and you may want to PM him and see if he can cross reference the G-S number to one of his glass crystals.

PY is the old reference, the new crystal would be CY. If you measure the opening, we can see if there is something that would fit? If nothing new is available, as mentioned there are many old crystals still in circulation.

I had ordered the fy from Esslinger and they advised me there was no f but a cy 875, I orderd two of them.   Now it's a wait and see.   I went to tip top and the closest was a bit off. Fy875-90


25.5 x 15.5
