    Ladies vintage Bulova - info sought

    I've also posted this on the Ladies watch forum....

    This is one of 2 Bulovas I have inherited. It was my grandmothers, who passed away in the mid 90's.

    I have not been able to find out much on it, or its potential value. So I am hoping a few here could steer me in the right direction.

    It is silver tone - I assume white gold.

    The face says Bulova 23

    On the back -

    14k Bulova

    975557


    Pics attached - any help is appreciated. I am feeling very lost.

    Welcome to the Vintage Forum. The watch is probably from the fifties or sixties. Bulova was a Swiss-American make that brought initially generic and later their own movements, made in Switzerland, into the US and assembled the watches there. Your watch will have a movement probably looking something like this:

    bidfun-db Archiv: Uhrwerke: Bulova 5AD

    ...but there are a few other candidates. The value beyong material value (gold) will be very low since the demand for these watches, even in excellent condition, is practically nil. The best thing would be to keep it as an heirloom, have it serviced and honour itr accordingly by wearing it reasonably frequently (except when exposure to water is an issue - these things are anything but waterproof!).

    Thank you for your reply, Hartmut!

    I'm actually a bit relieved to read your response.

    This watch is simply lovely and will keep it now to wear instead of worrying :)
