Movement Serial No.:
Case Serial No.:
This is a wonderful site! Thank you all so much. I have had fun trying to figure out the following watch.
Very Handsome and unusual Bulova Men’s watch. Rare Harlequin / Checkerboard / chess face in contrasting silver colors that reflect the light differently. Applied Gilt Arabic numerals 1 -12 with a small seconds sweep instead of the number 6. Hour and Minute Hands are Gold. Crystal is has a significant cruve to it. (Don’t really know how to explain – see photo).
Gold Case-back with serial number 8092286 marked “10K Gold Filled (next line) Bulova”. Inside: 21-Jewel 7AP Movement marked with a triangle (1945?).
As I have been obsessed with this site all day – here is what I have found – Seems to be a similar style to a late 40’s Director, the case style looks a lot like a General, and the checkers is similar to the Park Lane (even down to the thicker line just between the second hand and where the hands attach in the center of the face – weird.)
I bought the watch in ’86 and it ran fine while I used it for a year or two and then I switched it out for another one and have not really looked at it much since. Needs a good tune up, but worked when I got it and has only been sitting in a drawer. May sell, not sure yet.
Good looking, interesting watch. This is a tough one - Good Luck !
