The 'Other' input field in the 'Add a Watch' is a space that we can put the known model name if it does not exist in the dropdown list above. When someone puts text in this field it sends me an alert as well as listing an alert on the front page for me to see. This then tells me to add the new model name to the Taxonomy list for known models. All other information relevant to the watch should go in the additional information section.

It just helps me manage things at the backend alot better.

Thanks!

Wayne,

 

I missed "page two" of the comments, before... And yah, I'm suprised this model wasn't advertised, by Bulova? It always seems to do well... even on eBay now!  I show several models, taking similar crystals: 

Baxter, Cromwell, Princeton, Tuxedo, Wellington, Westover   CMX324-2
Cromwell, Princeton   CMX324-2C
Princeton   CMX324-2FT

 

 


Best :-)  Scott

It wasn't my watch Greg. I wish it was. Mine is mint. The one that sold for $306 was semi-excellent.

I have one of these, NOS with the original hang tag.  I'll have a look tomorrow and ID it. BTW - this watch came with a matching band.  That's not it.

Here's a quick pic I snapped this morning at my shop.  Hang tag says Westover.  Watch is NOS.

Bob,

The pic I posted is the original band.  The photo does not do it justice.  It really mirrors the design of the watch and is quite wide.
