And not the one that our parents or grandparents knew during WWII.
Look what showed up in the new J. Crew catalog. It's a pretty good replica of the 1943 Bulova Air Warden (thanks to plainsmen for the pic), that guardians of the city streets wore during the war. The price is a snip at $199 or $150 if you know the secret code SALENEWS. Ooops.
But where the original had a 15 jewel 10AK movement, this one has a no-jewel Japanese Miyota caliber 1L45 movement. Quartz of course. Couldn't they have produced a limited edition with a decent mechanical movement? My father would roll over in his grave. Luckily he wasn't buried with his Bulova.
