Bulova 13AE movement

the above movement is not listed on the movement index but I have seen one other listed on Ebay USA. The watch I have has the 13AE movement , 17 jewel with a date code of a square and I am assuming from the style of the case it is 1936. The case has the style of a 1933/34 Oakley case and is numbered 5126889. The dial has an inner second dial which gives the impression of a medical watch.I am curious as the watch movement is not listed on this site.

Bulova Oceanographer Help Needed

I recently purchased this Oceanographer for $25. It is running but missing the second hand. Also, someone pointed out that the dial may be a bad redial. Thoughts. Is it salvageable?

thanks in advance. 

Mate to Broadcaster?

I've never seen one before & have never seen an advert for it. A fairly rare specimen ...to me anyway.

I own a Broadcaster and when I first saw this for sale online I initially thought it was a Broadcaster.

It wasn't; It's this...


< Sorry - having issues posting a link >



It's curious why Bulova didn't advertise this alongside the Broadcaster.

Seems to be a few models on the list that aren't in the drop downs. Anybody ever heard of a Bulova "Auto Watch C"?

Question Regarding a Possible "Pelham" Outer Retail Box

This is perhaps a mid to late 50's, early 60's outer retail box acquired recently and I am speculating came from the factory containing a "Pelham, 17 J." and probably a retail price of $67.50. The damage to the top sticker from an apparent attempt to remove the sticker occurred prior to my receiving the box. 

Measures: 4  7/8” x 3  3/4” x 1  3/4” (12.4cm x 9.5cm x 4.5cm).

Upside down 2 for 7

Recently I've seen several Bulova's from the 30's / 40's where the dial's number 7 is actually an upside down number 2.  Is this legit?  Did Bulova actually do this or was it a creative way to restore the dial?


Salesman Sample Case, ever seen one?

I just purchased this and am anxiously awaiting it's arrival. Anyone ever seen one of these before or have an estimate of age? My guess would be perhaps 1940's. It measures approx 15" across and is made of wood covered with cloth. I've never encountered one and had to have it. One would think this is a pretty uncommon item. Thoughts?

Found an article from the 1973 Troy NY Times Record, dealing with how Bulova were one of the few American companies to be selling their watches in Switzerland.

1927 Trojan vs 1928/29 Conqueror

Can someone help me understand the difference between the 1927 Trojan and the 1928/29 and possibly 1930 Conqueror models?  Unless I missed something they appear identical to me?



Vintage Bulova "Champ " watch

I recently purchased a  Bulova " Champ " model watch at an estate sale. I am looking to get an opinion as to whether or not go through the expense of having the dial redone. Looking for the pro's and cons . Best Ed
