JP... there is a large database of vintage Bulova advertisements under INFORMATION at that top.  With the year you can easily find this model.  It might be pretty easy for you to inform yourself and really start to become familiar with these common models if you check it out.

Thanks again Fifth. Yes plainsmen, Nova gave me the heads up on finding the watches I need names for and I appreciate that. I will be doing more research as I get more familiar with how to navigate the site.

Does anyone have any ideas on why the watch runs normal and the slows down almost to a stop but not quite and then picks up and runs normal again?

I would suggest it needs a good cleaning and re- lube.

JP,

That would make a great question to the Watchmakers who frequent the site as I've been asked the same question recently - try starting a thread in the Forums.

We may all learn something.

I need some one to walk me through the process of inserting the ad correctly.

I responded to your question about this in your President listing.  Let's talk via PM tomorrow, and I'll get you some written instructions.

Inserting pics isn't that hard, but you also need to be able to make them the correct size.  So, don't worry, we'll get it all ironed out.
