Additional Information

Dear Sir or Madam:

My name is Paul, I purchased my Bulova in 2005. I got it from a watch maker in Rancho Mirage, California. Now retired and out of business. All I know is that it is a 1970. I have tried to find one similar for identification, but to no avail. I am not a watch maker, nor do I feel comfortable with opening the back to expose the movement. So forgive the lack of pictures. I gave you two pictures of the front so one, you can see the condition of the face and the other for detail. Thank You all for looking at my Bulova, I look forward to hearing from you.

 

Best Regards;  Paul Airhart

I'm pretty sure what you have is a Bulova Sea King.

Looks like you have yourself a Clipper "AG" model, Paul. It has some distinct markers at 6,9,and 12. Without seeing the movement, will have to go with the case date code of 1970; sometimes the movements in these 70s watches have different date codes (from what I have seen). I like the look of this watch!

Hello Paul, welcome to myBulova, this is a great looking 1970's Bulova. I love the style of this era of watches. Be sure to have it professionally serviced if you wear it and it should last at couple more generations.

I agree with Ken on the Clipper AG ID.

Wow, thank you all very much. The advert is great. I found a watchmaker close to me, when he goes in to clean and lube, I'll get some pictures. I'm going to be on the hunt for a similar stainless band for it. Very exciting, thanks again.
