Movement Serial No.:
Case Serial No.:
Sorry i havent posted in a few weeks. I have many more Bulovas to post , but here is a nice one i cant seem to put a name to.
It LOOKS similar to a Yankee Clipper and a Beau Brummel from the early 1960's , But the case is slightly different. And the hands look differentThe inside of the watch case back is stamped with "Bulova 5th avenue".The case has odd , almost scalloped lugs. The case is 10kt rolled gold with a stainless steel back.
Its a Automatic 17 jewel 11alac movement in the watch . I got the watch as part of a estate auction , about 200 watches dead in a igloo cooler was sold to me about a half year back. The watch showed signs of wanting to work, and that attracts me more than just about anything to a watch . It makes me want to fix it for some reason, a weakness in me for sure lol.
It ran slow when it did. So it needed a good cleaning and lube . I polished the case. I also removed all the old brow radium lume from the dial and the hands , and relumed it myself. And i polished the crystal . I have the original stretch band ,which is capped with 10kt rolled gold, but i cant stand wearing the stretchy steel bands. They all rip my arm hair out. So i put it on a decent looking olive nato strap.
I found a picture online of a similar dialed watch from 1964 , according to the ebay ad. The dial is the same , but red . And the case appears the same.
And all of my watches are for sale, but i cant seem to get the "for sale"indicator to work on any of my posts.
Thanks in advance for looking, and any thoughts as to the watch.
