Additional Information: 

I inherited this watch from an old friend, but don't have any details from the "insides" to post here. My old friend thinks he bought the watch in Hong Kong - possibly - in the late 60's/early 70's. It's been as refurbished as it can be and runs very well with all the hands and push-buttons in working order.

Hi Greg, welcome to myBulova. This is a very nice watch. If you're going to wear and use it regularly it's ultra important that you have the movement service (regularly). These are fantastic watches but they need maintenance to remain viable. You're most fortunate to have inherited it, congratulations.

It would be best if the date code on the inside of the case and / or the movement could be recorded to be sure of the date of manufacture. This style does fit into the mid 60's and we will classify it as....

Chronograph.

Thanks for sharing it.

This is a great Chronograph.  I do hope when you get it serviced by your watchmaker/repair person, they can get the details on the inside case back and movement.  Its a great addition to the MyBulova watch database.  Thanks for entering it!!!

Thanks for the nice comments about my inherited Bulova Chronograph (now I know what it's called!). I'll be seeing the guy who services my watches from time to time soon, so I'll be asking him to (carefully) take the back off and note down all the details inside the case so I can post it up here soon-ish. Thanks again for your interest!
