Here's one for grins and giggles. Sorry, but I couldn't find the clock section. Note the last picture of the back references "Bulova Watch Precision". Keeps great time but only recieves AM Radio, and not very well I might add. So folks, I present to you the another cool Bulova. Looks similar to the Imperial but not quite the same.

There's a fairly extensive list of the Bulova Clock Radios with images along with technical info here: http://www.radiomuseum.org/m/bulova_usa_en_1.html

so a Bulova clock radio "Model 180"? Great piece!  Although older info, below is the Bulova Radio list from Fall 1955 to get an idea of the info thats out there for later models:

No mention of clock radios in the 1954 Bulova model list.  Found this January 30th, 1955 Newspaper ad from jeweler in PA for "the world's first clocl radio".

The site Mark gave us the link to dates the 180 to 1959. Go figure, it's as old as I am.

You got your birthyear timepiece, Shawn! Now you gotta figure a way to wear it, maybe you could hook it up to your golf trolley battery!
Really funky and copacetic, Daddyo!

Well, I think I'll stick to the 59 wristwatchs for the wrist. This clocks going to look pretty cool on my nightstand. Hey, for $30.00 I couldn't pass it by even if it is pink! lol
