    Bulova President Project Progress

    Hey fellas:

    As you may remember, I had asked about some info on hands and restoration on my grandfather's Bulova President.

    https://forums.watchuseek.com/f11/hei...tml?highlight=

    I got referred to Rob Stoddard of Vera Vintage Watches and he's carrying out the restoration. Just wanted to show you all the progress







    The dial was sent to International Dial Co. And it was refinished

    Before



    After



    Movement running for the first time after many years. (Overhaul done Video)
