I thought it about time we started a forum where we can post pictures of myBulova.com members meeting. A few years back I was delighted to hear that a couple of members met to share a beer and a yarn about their Bulova watch addiction, ah I mean collection. Prior to myBulova.com these members were total strangers and it's a wonderful feeling to know that this site has made some lasting friendships...no marriages yet (plenty of divorces maybe..joking) but it's only a matter of time before His Excellency meets and marrys Her Excellency.
Ask a question
<p>Ask general questions about Bulova watches. Please do not ask for model identification. <a href="/adding-your-watch-mybulovacom-database">Add your watch</a> to the website for that.
Several times a week we get inquiries as to how much someones vintage Bulova watch is worth. Rather than explain this over and over, I thought maybe we'd have one post we could possibly make a sticky for anyone inquiring.
The worth of your vintage Bulova or Accutron watch is very subjective. There are no hard and fast rules that this one is worth X amount. They are worth what someone is willing to pay for that specific watch.
I started working on a Bulova 11AERC movement, took lots of pictures while disassembling.
But I was wondering if there is any documentation about this movement?
Maybe some exploded views or details on how the compilation works?
I've searched in the archives but nothing came up, anyone had more luck then me?
Regards and take care
I realise this may be too vague but would most of you generally sell Bulova watches individually, or as a collection?
I own a Bulova Marine Star and I purchased a Rubaiyat for my mother. I've looked online but can't find too much info about both lines of watches.
Anyone have any history on where they started? Especially Rubaiyat as they likely have a much longer lineage and history than the marine star line.
Can someone confirm whether the case back on the deep sea chrono is friction fitted or screw down? I suppose I should know but it is not apparent to me and I don't want to do anything until I know for certain. If it is a screw down, is there a specific wrench to use and does someone want to part with one?
I have a vintage Bulova Deauville/Lady Lindy where some of the vitreous enamel inlay is missing. Esslinger sells a material for the purpose of replacing the inlay called Ceramit but I hear it is difficult to obtain good results. Do you have suggestions for the repair?
I read in a google search a discussion in this forum regarding how to separate a two piece stem without yanking it out but rather turning the stem backwards with the movement hanging. Worked like a charm.
Wondering IF there is an equally simple way to rejoin the parts when the time comes. Not sure how to query the archive.
I'm looking to fit new hands to my Bulova His Excellency KK ideally in the 'fountain pen nib' style shown in the attached photo.
I would like to know if the standard hand parts (10BCC) pictured would be compatible with my model and if not where I can find ones that are.
Cheers - this is a great website!
