    M5 Bulova identification

    Hello everybody.

    I want to share this discovery made on Sunday; finally I've found my father's Bulova at my mom's.

    It's a manual winding watch dated M5 (1965 afaik).

    It seems to work well but it's missing a strap and the glass is broken.

    Inside it's very clean (it's magic to see it working).

    Do you think it can be easily replaced the glass? Which strap or bracelet (if possible) do you suggest?
    Many thanks.

    Congratulations on your discovery!

    The glass is easily replaced. But I would suggest that you consider having it serviced as it's been sitting for a long time and it has sentimental value. The glass will be replaced as part of that.

    Many thanks, I'll send an email to Bulova Italy to know where I can get it serviced.

    Nice watch!
    I'm sure you know, but remember your crystal will be acrylic. If you have a hard time finding a replacement, which you shouldn't, just let us know.
    Any good watchmaker should be able to service this watch. I wouldn't think you'd have to go to anyone too special.
    Enjoy it!
