I bought an old military style 17 jewel Bulova watch tonight and was wondering if anyone could tell me about. It's supposed to be 29.6mm across without the crown. I tried to find out for myself but really couldn't come up with much. These are the sellers pix, their pix are never very good and they never have a shot of the movement.
It was the plain screw back case back that drew my attention so I grabbed it while I had the chance. I've bought several watches off this seller in the past, they've always looked much better in person than in their photos. It's supposed to be running, and I got it for $19.95, so I figured I really couldn't go wrong since it's a Bulova.
Edit: It resembles this 1953 Seabee, and taking into account the screw down back that's probably what it is. It will be here later this week and I'll post my own pix then:
Here it talks about the Bulova Watertite and Seabee:
