Bulova 1950 -Non-Conforming
I inherited this Bulova from my father. I have a pic of him wearing it in 1956. The watch has been in my jewelry box for 27 years since he passed. He had not wore the watch since the middle 1960's. I finally decided it was time to bring her back to life, so I wound it up and it has been running fine for several days. 2 or so minutes fast per day. I purchased a black leather band and have been wearing it.
I opened the case and did not take pics at the time. I did write down the movement as I know this is one of the ways we date Bulova watches. I do not want to open it again as I had trouble getting it back together.
The watch face is black and hands and numerals are gold - 12, 3, 6, and 9, and the others are slashes.
FRONT OF WATCH:
Movement (written under BULOVA)
BACK OF WATCH:
Stainless steel back
*There are no case serial #s. Also, the crown is not signed.
On the inside of the watch case I noticed several dates that had been engraved. I assumed these to be service dates. They were very small, even with a magnifying glass. The final date looked to be 1971.
The closest watch I could find on the site was a 1953 Jordan. But, I won't make a guess as I have been wrong before when posting watches. I will leave it to the panel. These guys are the best!
Any help and/or information is greatly appreciated. This is a true heirloom.
**Also, I have not cleaned the watch. I would think leaving it 'as is' is preferable. Thoughts? Suggestions?
