    Bulova world time clock

    Anyone know when this one might have been manufactured? When did Bulova start using Japanese mvt.

    Re: Bulova world time clock

    Bulova (as caravelle) was using Japanese movements in the 60's; alarm clocks are usually off the radar of watch collectors. Bulova made clocks using their accutron movements though, so I'm somewhat inclined to think this was a late 70's/80's item (after Bulova became a division of Lowe Corp.) They are, of course, owned by a Japanese company now...

    The 90's I guess (from the wachmaker scratched code).

    ...that's just my opinion and I've been wrong before and will be again and might be now!

    Agreed
    Maybe move to 'modern'?
    Or is 90s 'vintage'??

    Well...it kinda fits in a pocket... ;)

    One of the more "snide" definitions of "Vintage" is "Anything older then I am", and surprisingly enough, there are a few 20 yo's that wander by this forum occasionally. It'd probably seem vintage to them...

    The number of quartz watches older than Eeeb = e**(pi*i) - 1

    (that evaluates to 0 for the folks who did not take Calculus II )

    I've got 3 on their way now.

    A Raketa mini alarm clock that uses a wristwatch movement, a Slava Soviet Space Program alarm clock with a rocket arching over it and golden globe cover over the back with Russia designated by the CCCP mark, and a Slava Soviet Young Pioneers Organization alarm clock, which was the Communist Cold War version of the Boy Scouts of America.
