    COMPLETED: 1944 Bulova President Restoration.

    Hey fellas! Just wanted to let you know that the Bulova President that belonged to my grandfather is now complete!






    And they're about to install an NOS Crystal on it!



    The restoration was done by Rob Stoddard of Vera Vintage Watches of San Diego.

    Vintage and Military Watches - Sales, Parts & Repair | San Diego, CA

    I highly recommend him, his services and communication are incomparable to anything. He helps and does anything he can to help you. Shoot him an email with your restoration project and he will do his best!

    This is a list of the repairs done by Rob:

    Cleaning and Oiling
    Set of 7AK Watch Hands
    Pre-Owned Bulova Crown
    G-S Watch Crystal Bulova “President”
    Dial Refinishing
    Case Repair
    Alligator Leather Strap.


    Everything, for just $200! I find it's totally worth it since it's a heirloom.

    Hope you enjoy the project and I will shoot more pictures when it arrives!

    They have done a very nice job - any chance of a before photo?

    I thought I had already replied to this thread.... as Trim says... great job..... was also going to ask if you have any 'before' shots... would be nice to compare!

    congrats,
