Dear oliverb,

I can only base the description on what evidence I have found [see original adverts above undoubtably paid for by Bulova] and what my Father who originally bought it has retold me that the watch was bought from a Bulova dealer in 1975 in England. As you can see from the above advert Its description states "1975 Bulova Accuquartz Centenary"

How do you know that for sure ?

Besides for all we know it might be a Euro only model...

BTW mine with the correct movement is posted here : http://www.mybulova.com/watches/1975-accuquartz-5712

please read the details of my watch as it HAS the correct movement

It didn't originally as evidenced by all the discussions in this thread so instead of posting this (and bugging me via PM) how about sharing with everyone here how you got it fixed?

With respect Webvan I was not trying to “Bug you” by sending you the private messages, the aim was to merely correct an inaccuracy statement you made. “BTW mine with the correct movement is posted here : http://www.mybulova.com/watches/1975-accuquartz-5712


I know the full history of this watch. Please read the full content of this thread as the original movement HAS been fixed and is working very well.

Best Regards

Again, my statement was accurate when I made it, in the meantime you had the wrong 218 movement in your watch swapped for the correct 2242 movement and unless I am mistaken you have not given any details has to how you went about having that done? I think that you owe it to the people who bothered trying to help you out in this thread to share how that was done. This would certainly be better form than to try to pass your watch as having had the correct movement when you first posted here by asking me via PM repeatedly to remove my comment...

Dear webvan, Thank you for your posting. With respect I have no need to "pass" my watch as having the correct movement as it was and still is an original having been in my family since it was bought new from a genuine Bulova dealer in 1975!   FYI. I had been pm members of the panel with regards to identifying the watch.   Finally as for my pm to you I was merely trying to highlight your inaccurate statement – I must apologise if you have taken them in the wrong way. Best regards Dune

Again, my statement was NOT inaccurate when it was made and it is OFFENSIVE that you keep writing that. It is troubling that you are unwilling to share how you went about getting the proper 2242 movement back in that watch 'instead of the 218 movement it had when you first came here) and continue denying it was done by saying your watch "was and still is an original" THAT is inaccurate, unless you somehow found the original 2242 movement and had it fixed...

Bought new by my father from a genuine Bulova dealer  in 1975

Strange attitude...I suppose you have your own special reasons for refusing to discuss the recent movement change that is obvious to anyone reading the posts here, anyway, I give up.

Oh...as a last ditch effort and in case you're suffering some short term memory loss problems, this is the original picture of the movement you posted as seen here http://www.mybulova.com/watches/5334?page=2 in "William Smith's" (a pannel member) post dated January 16, 2013 - 1:39am :

Before :  a 218 movement

After : a 2242 movement
