I thought it about time we started a forum where we can post pictures of members meeting. A few years back I was delighted to hear that a couple of members met to share a beer and a yarn about their Bulova watch addiction, ah I mean collection. Prior to these members were total strangers and it's a wonderful feeling to know that this site has made some lasting marriages yet (plenty of divorces maybe..joking) but it's only a matter of time before His Excellency meets and marrys Her Excellency.

Several times a week we get inquiries as to how much someones vintage Bulova watch is worth.  Rather than explain this over and over, I thought maybe we'd have one post we could possibly make a sticky for anyone inquiring.

The worth of your vintage Bulova or Accutron watch is very subjective.  There are no hard and fast rules that this one is worth X amount.  They are worth what someone is willing to pay for that specific watch.

Are people putting blue anodized hands in watches for the "blued" look? Examples posted ---

I have a set of cathedral hands that are a beautiful "rainbow" blue if looked at in the right angle. 


Lately I've came across some watches with hands that look ANODIZED blue ... are they installing these to try to get the "rainbow aged" blued look, or are they really just naturally aged to a blue color?


Thanks! Blued cathedral

Crystal fell out of 54' squadron, how to reinstall?

I was cleaning my 1954 Squadron and the crystal fell out.  I'm not really feeling glue on the edges, and it doesn't seem like it has a beveled edge to just press it back in.

Figured I'd ask before I end of cracking this thing.  What's it going to take to get it reinstalled... glue... a press ... or just press it back in carefully?
