I'd like to get more information on this watch.  Can someone please help me? It's also not working right now.  I'd like some help on getting it to work.  I'm also not sure if it's real or fake.  Can someone please help me? Thanks !

Looks like one of the "La Petitte" series watches.  Kinda similar to the "La Petitte" variant "B" as seen in this 1958 ad.  

We have a similar watch listed as such here.  

Bud Lova if you can give us more information (and possibly more pictures) we may be able to better ID your watch.  There should be markings on the inside case back, and while the case back is off, you can see (get picture) of the movement which may give us more information.   Information for dating your Bulova watch can be seen here.

Althought not the same "La Petitte" variant, here is a good example of the types of pictures and information which helps us ID your (and other) watches.

Yeah I'd agree... probably of the La Petitte line.  The date on here needs to be changed though it's not a 1980'a Bulova.  Probably just transposed the 8 and 5.  It's more along the lines of 1958.

Wow thanks for all the help I'll post more pictures! So it's absolutely not a fake watch?

Nope... not fake at all.  It's not a hugely expensive watch, but definately not fake.

That's cool, I found it in my old room at my moms place.

Agree on La Petite. What's stamped on the back of the watch?
