Saw this 1950s (??) Bulova at a local antique shop today. Unfortunately my right arm is out of commission at the moment so I was unable to open it and photograph the movement (the staff at this place is very friendly and accommodating, but don't have the know-how to do it themselves).
Stupid me forgot to get a photo of the caseback, but it was marked as 10K rolled gold plate (or was it gold filled??).
Signed Bulova crown. Winds smoothly and runs. Crystal needs a good polish.
I assume it's an older re-dial. Either that or Bulova was very sloppy with the printing (I doubt this). Since there isn't much there to print, this part doesn't bother me too much. However, they are asking $45 and won't come down on the price so I passed on it. The fact that I can't see the movement doesn't help.
Did I make the right call? I really love the style so I guess I'm having second thoughts.
