    Help Identify an old Bulova Marine Star and Junghens Pocketwatch

    Hey folks, this is my first post, but I've been lurking for a while. Was hoping you guys might be able to tell me a little about these two pieces. I have realized the Marine Star is missing part of the face, and I'd like to replace it. I'd like to know when these pieces were made and anything you might know about them. Not looking to sell either, just for the history. Thanks!!

    It is a rule of the forum to not give valuations because worth cannot usually be determined by pictures alone.
    I believe the A0 on the Bulova's caseback dates it to 2000. What do you mean part of the face is missing?
    I have two Marine Stars myself and they are built quite well.

    the junghans is not my field of expertise so ill let others handle that.

    Thanks for the advice. I read through the rules, but obviously missed that! Was just curious for myself. As for the face, most Marine Stars I've seen have an additional piece surrounding the crystal. And there is a little hole between the 12 and 1 that I think was the attachment point.

    Here is a picture of a similar model that has the "seconds" piece I believe mine may be missing.

    The missing piece is called the bezel. I suspect you will need to find a donor watch (similar watch) to supply a replacement.

    The Bulova is a modern quartz movement from the times when Bulova was an orphan company (not the old US company and before being bought by Citizen).

    The Junghans is very interesting. But a movement pic would be quite helpful to say more.
    "Forever is composed of nows." - Emily Dickinson

    "The watch has to be surrounded by a history.
    You need more than just a great design. You need to create an atmosphere around the product.
    Who is the company behind it? Why are they using this material?
    People need to be able to identify the watch with themselves. It's based on emotion." - Ralph Furter

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

    I thought rule 16 states that members can give valuations. It's just not a WUS valuation. Individuals can give valuations.

    This forum has it's own rules for which the last is the best

    And here is another rule, but one that will remain numberless:

    We don't do valuations here. Nobody can put a value on any watch online: this means that you shouldn't ask what your watch is worth! Re-read these rules for the reasons why!

    As I understand it, members can give valuations in private messages, just not in the forum proper. Remember, Watchuseek tends to rank highly in google searches, I've seen ebay sellers provide links to WUS threads for notable watches, and I've seen WUS members use threads when challenging the value of their purchases. It may not be an issue for something like this Marine Star (which probably wasn't all that expensive even when it was new), but imagine if someone convinced that Breguet owner that his watch was only worth a few hundred ('cuase really, it's just an old cylinder, and doesn't even have a second hand!) At best, our reputation takes a hit, and at worst Ernie get slapped with a lawsuit.
