Dear friends, since you have already been so kind to me, giving me some pieces of advice in this new to me world of vintage bulova watches, here I am with a couple of questions.
As I wrote some weeks ago I am yearning for a Bulova Blackhawk with all the numerals around the dial. I came across a Carrel, instead, and I bought it. I love it. I posted it here in this site.
One week ago I found on ebay another watch. It seemed to be in excellent conditions. The auction had an expensive starting price for me in this time of crisis here in Italy but my wife smiled at me when I showed this watch to her on the screen. "I love it" I told her, anticipating a quarrel upon the money I would spend. "All right, so, try to win the auction" she whispered to me...
I have no idea about the usual prices for these watches but I won the auction and I paid 220 us dollars, high tracked shipping fare to Italy included and, moreover, I paid 35 euros for Customs' tax. In my opinion, I paid an arm and a leg but I hope that someone will comfort me by telling me that in the end it was not that much and it was worth it.
This is EXACTELY the watch I was dying for, with all its numerals around...but in the negative film colour...
Did it belong to anyone of you?
Does anyone know its history?
