My personal Art Deco Bulova favorite.

Can you provide a photo of the movement for date verification?

  • thanks for chiming in. What I am perplexed about is that with the exception of an old black an white advert i haven't seen any other Corrigans with the same subseconds as mine. Even in the advert I can't tell if it has the same sub seconds as mine.  

the only pic I have of the movement is the one from the seller. ( not sure I could post it here) I haven't been able to access the movement. Also the movement has a little rust covering up the symbols

We have 2 different subseconds layouts represented in the database, yours is the third. No numbers, 60/30 and now 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60.

This posting bears a good clear ad showing the same layout as yours. You match the ad!

  • shortly after I received my watch I learned that conventional spring bars don't work in securing the top part of the case.  I've seen others use tubes with screws to secure the ends.  What are these spring bars called ?

I'm trying to add a movement pic but so far no luck.  I managed to get rid of the rust.  The symbol on the movement appears be be a crescent.
