Additional Information

This IS the elusive Bulova Brunswick. Most likely shown exactly the way it left the factory, still sporting what is most likely the bracelet it wore when it left the retail store. My heart skipped a BEAT when I first held this watch, it is almost perfect. The case is nearly flawless, the clasp of the Maxim bracelet has just a couple scuffs, the crown looks as if it was never used, the dial, to my knowledge 100% original and untouched. This could be the find of the year for my collection. We waited a long time for one to enter the db and here it is! Check out the stunning, crisp engraving detail on this Brunswick.

Interesting fact to note, the dial has lumed numerals but the Bulova name is not painted, it's applied. While the ads we have are a bit fuzzy, this amazing watch looks to be consistent with them in that respect.

THAT is a museum piece like Rob says, if Bulova had a museum, this watch would be a main attraction!

Five stars, not three ticks.

I don't usually kiss and tell but yes Rev, to a member of the clergy I will confess (assuming confidentiality of course)....

Bought off the bay this August, $200 and worth every cent, drachma, shilling, franc, kroner, peso, ruble or euro or whatever currency you can think of!

An absolute bargain, if I may say so!
