Movement: Swiss Automatic
Strap: NOS Vintage Bulova Pebbled Black Leather
Starting in Europe and then establishing themselves in New York City, Bulova holds a strong place in watchmaking history. Their vintage and Swiss made pieces displaying the marks of this heritage.
This Swiss made automatic watch has a huge amount of vintage charm found all over the case and dial. Not to mention it comes complete with a vintage NOS ( New Old Stock ) Bulova pebbled leather strap. The case is stainless steel and features a square shape with a rounded pillow shaped profile. It also has a bubble caseback and acrylic crystal. All these items as well as the signed crown are original. Below the crystal, the dial is silver and says “Bulova”, SELF WINDING”, and “T SWISS T”. The Hands are sword style and feature radium/tritium lume which has turned a beautiful orangish colour from patination. The indices really stand out with their unique geometric design. Their multifaceted polished surfaces adding a brilliance on the wrist. The lugs are small and straight, sticking with the rectangular case design.
For its age this watch is in great condition. It winds well by hand and the movement of the wrist and keeps accurate time. It is all original save for the strap, but the strap included is an unused/new vintage Bulova strap which compliments the watch well. That said, this is a vintage item, and its performance should be taken into consideration with its age. The watch is not waterproof.
Also included is a velvet pouch for storage, a spring bar tool for adjusting the bracelet or changing the strap, as well as a polishing cloth - all new and unused items.
As the watch sold here is a vintage second-hand item, it does not come with the original packaging or paperwork.
Asking price is $325 or best offer. All reasonable offers are welcome.
