By the 1940s the Swiss firm of Bulova had really established it self as a powerhouse in the American Watch Market. They did this through the application of quality at a great price point and backed it up with worldwide service and parts availability. Today, many of these great watches survive and we can restore them with the original parts that still exist. This rectangular Bulova was at the cutting edge of style circa 1945. It is a 21 jewel (caliber 8 AE), in a yellow gold-filled case that measures 22 mm wide, by 36 mm lug to lug, by 9 mm thick (including the cylinder crystal). We have fitted it with a dark brown genuine lizard band that goes very well with this watch. The original finish dial is in great shape, with a nice patina, displaying Arabic numerals at the 12, the 3, and the 9, while the six o'clock position is occupied by the seconds bit with gold slash markers at all the other chapters. This is a very nice watch for very little dough and our head watchmaker has it winding, setting and keeping time just the way Bulova intended. While it was originally intended as a gentleman's watch, it is of a size that would look great on a lady's wrist, as well.
