Additional Information: 

I've been sitting on this watch for a few years.  It used to be my Great uncle's and after it came into my hands i never gave it much thought.  After just recently getting into the show "Pawn Stars" and marathoning through the episodes on Netflix it rekindled my curiosity to find out what this watch is.

My research led me to this site and that the watch is a 1970 Chronograph C with its original band.

 

I would love to know if it is in good condition, how rare it is. and how much it might cost to get it cleaned up. It does run I'm just looking to get it cleaned and serviced. The metal band doesn't snap shut but it doesn't appear to be broken either so I'm gunna take that to the Jeweler to see if they can fix it.

 

Thanks for making this site available!

Darren,

The Movements are signed Bulova Watch Co 14 EB on the Chrono bridge with the makers mark and 7736 stamped under the balance.

Thanks Mark. I don't think any of the chrono C's have pics of the movement or the Bulova movement model listed.

If needed I have a source for parts for the VAL 7736/14EB.

Mark, the 14EB covers BOTH the 2 register Val 7733 AND the 3 register 7736?
