That's a nice Tuxedo Jabs. It's the same age as me, but I didn't hold up as well. It won't take much to make this beauty shine again. I see that little "v" notch on the dial. If that's a refinished dial, it sure was done to perfection. I like it.

I just re-read my comment about the dial. That could be taken the wrong way. I meant the printing and everything looks to have been done without any errors. It has some age showing but that's not what I was referring to.

I'll try to dial first gently cleaned and then I'll see, watch needs a complete revision.

Hi jabs

Nice one you beat me to that one :-) 

It has the same hands as the one l put on the db a couple of weeks ago. I know the db ad shows different hands to yours and my tuxedo but l have seen a few with this type of hands. Is the add correct or did bulova produce some tuxedo's with these hands as well as with the ones shown in the add

These hands are not correct, already seeking new.
