1937 Bulova Ranger on a early 60's replacement band installed by me. Watch came on a crusty leather that was an obvious late 40's replacement (for a 5"wrist)  and beyond saving. Some plating wear on face side high points, otherwise pretty nice overall. Keeping time.

Additional Information

This appears to be a 1941 Lieutenant based on the following previous watch.  http://www.mybulova.com/watches/1941-lieutenant-3483

This is a yellow gold watch with a 10AX movement with the asterick date code.   The dial is a silver champagne color with gold applied hour numbers.  It appears the same as the above watch and others listed as a Lieutenant but the sub second register has no second numbers.   Interestingly the watch is engraved on the back Michael Salay.  I did find a Michael Salay who was a race care driver and this could have been a prize he won for winning a race.   The watch is not currently running.

1955 Bulova Ranger (tentative)

Case is 10K RGP yellow with a stainless back, dated L5; movement is a 17-jewel 11AC dated L5; dial has been refinished; Roman numerals etched inside case match case s/n last three 362; ID is based on the crystal, which is the G-S CMY305-2E Bulova 'Ranger'. Not much to go on as I could not find any ads to support the model. One offsite mention of this id based on crystal.

I restored this watch for a client, being posted here with his permission.

Additional Information

The most common quote referred to from the Hippicratic Oath is "first do no harm". Since the local watchmaker passed away I have not found a person that I trust with my treasures. Therefore, as much as I would like to show you a pristine example, this is the next best thing; a survivor. Based on the depth of the reference material available on this site I believe the movement was made in 1941 due to the asterisk symbol. It is a 10BE movement used from 1941 to 1943 and the case matches a Lieutenant model (in my opinion); however, the dial has raised gold numbers on white instead of the black numbers on coppertone as shown in the examples, so I am very interested in your collective opinions. Thanks for your assistance - great site.

 This looks like a Banker or Ranger, gold 10krgp case body with stainless back.

Engraved on the bezel front, I read the 7 page post from last year on these watches.

I'm now really confused.

The band is only marked "MAXIM", and is showing lots of brassing.  Almost looks like it's chrome plated, but I guess it could be gold plate.  The pattern on the links of band are very close to those on the watch bezel. but not exact.  If the band didn't come with the watch, it sure looks like it could have....
