Bulova 1979 Combitron
This is my first post on the forum having just accquired what I hope will turn out to be a lucky find at a flea market.
I found a link to this site on the Watch U Seek forum.
I hoping to find out some more info on thiis watch -including where I might find a good place to have it serviced in the U.K .
The model is called a Combitron but I can very little info on it other than it was first made in 1979.
From my reading so far the movement seems both fairly uncommon and also seemed to have some reliabilty issues: ESA Y2 900231
Since puttting a new battery in the analogue display is working well and keeping good time however the digital display is erratic -possibly due to dirty contacts?
The pushers both work.
IWhat I assume is mineral crystal is badly marked .
I`m hoping to find some guidance/info on the watch as I like the look of it and it seems fairly uncommon.
The case is stainless steel with what appears to be the original bracelet with Bulova signed buckle.
If anyone has views or information I`d be grateful to hear it.
Is the watch worth spending money on etc.
As this is my first Bulova I`m hoping I can resurrect it .
Thanks in advance for any feedback
