    Re: Help with Bulova crown ID, please

    Cheers, simpletreasures. My gut is that Bulova says Bulova and B = Benrus. I'm not completely convinced that "B" crowns are Bulova, myself, it's completely out of step with their corporate style.


    UPDATE… the eBay seller has refunded my US$30 (hey, you can see why I'm asking, it's a lotta loot for a 2 buck crown…) and so it will go back into the swamp for another unsuspecting person to be and then write to this forum and ask the same question. He rarely shows the actual item, only the packaging and - as previous - would not answer my emails, which makes me think more and more that he thinks he's being clever with this. Most of his "genuine" Bulova crowns are unsigned (ie Bestfit substitutes) or "signed B." You are hereby warned - these are premium prices for generic or misdescribed goods. It's made more irritating for me, of course, because this has taken 3 tedious weeks to solve.

    THANKS to all!

    SiT's 666 is the right one. A highly sought after watch!

    The Bulova and Accutron crowns shown above look to be original with what I have and seen. I'm still curious as to the crown showing on that Bulova 666 I posted. It seems to be rounded on top. The Benrus seems to be distinct with the circled B and rounded also. The OP's crown looks to be flat and the B is a bold letter type.

    And thanks for the info on my crown. I have seen some eternas but not sure of the size or threads. I don't have my measuring tools available. I will have to change it out as the Benrus crown has a bent thread shaft.

    Yup, especially on the "later" models. Your watch looks to be from the 70's, what's the date code on the case back?
