Additional Information

I picked this up cheap off of Ebay this week.  It is marked N3 on the Case back and Movement.   I believe it to be a 1973 Jetstar.  It currently is running but the day date function is not functioning properly.  Tried to fix it myself and a spring went flying......bummer.  I polished the crystal and case and have it looking great.  Just need to send it in to a professional for service.  There are some bumps on the dial.  it is yellow gold plated with a gold brushed dial.  Inside the case back it is blank except for a printed number 3340.

 Check it out, 1973 Jet Star "11634" in super clean running condition from a Thrift Store. I haven't opened this one up yet and it looks like nobody else ever has either. Does not appear to have ever seen much wrist time. Band is marked "Bulova" on the inside of the clasp rather than embossed on the outside.

You know I was always a bit sad that I sold Lisa my last Jet Star.  It was unique and I didn't realize at the time how rare they were.  The one she has is the only other one I've come across.... until tonight!  BOOM!

With the orignial Bulova band as pictured in the ad baby!!!  Unlike the other one... this one is running and I'm going to have Timemachines give it a thurough scrubbering and this will be a new daily wearer for me!

(breaks into song) Reunited and it feels soooo goooooood!(/endsong)

Additional Information

This is a fantastically 70s watch. The hands are amazing. I got this with the quickset not functioning properly and in need of a good cleaning and new crystal. I love when the original finish is still visible on these kind of watches and they aren't just polished to death.
