Hello WatchEx Family! This is a fantastic Self-winding watch from Bulova. All stainless steel with the original fitted signed Bulova bracelet. The case is marked M9 (1969), but the 17 jewel Caliber 11ANAC movement is marked N2 (1972), so I'm going with the later date, of course.
This would make a fantastic dress or everyday watch. It has a gorgeous silvery champagne radial brushed dial with very minimal text marked "Bulova, Automatic, and t Swiss t," also the cool Bulova whale. All of the original tritium lume is intact on the hands and dial. Very similar in size/wearability to a Rolex OP Date. In fact, my brother said it is prettier than my Rolex mosaic dial (see side by side picture in the album).
It is 32mm width (not including crown), but good wrist presence with the bracelet and squarish case shape. About 37.5mm lug tip to lug tip and 17.5mm lug width.
The watch seems to be all original (possibly even including the crystal which had quite a bit of scratches, but polished up nicely leaving only a few marks).
Price: $150 Slightly Negotiable
CONDITION:Full service history is not known, but the movement is running strong, has just undergone a partial clean/lube; it has very low beat error, very good isochronism performance, and is keeping excellent time at about +10 seconds per day. The power reserve is strong at about 39 hours. The case has a few scratches, but retains it's original beautiful radially brushed top with polished sides. The bracelet has some wear including a little very light oxidation in a few spots. Some scuffs/scratches throughout, but overall amazing condition for a 50 year old watch! The signed crown has some wear, but it winds and sets smoothly. A few light marks on the crystal (primarily a nick on the crystal at about ~2:30). Very slight oxidation spots on the dial, and the minute hand has some slight bend toward the center.
All pictures are of the actual watch you will receive. Please study them carefully. Pictures reveal more imperfections than the naked eye.
NOTE: Dial may look silver in some of the pictures, but it has a light champagne color.
Watch you see is what you get!
