    Mystery Vintage Bulova

    Can anyone tell me anything about this antique store find? There are no indications of a date, not even Bulova's date code system. Any information would be much appreciated.

    The Bulova date code is on the movement if I recall correctly.

    Most of the ones I've seen, like yours, were sold in European markets or through military base exchanges. Yours resembles a "Clipper" variety but can't be sure without a corresponding ad. If you pop open the back there should be a date code on the movement.

    I think the case is a replacement on mine. All stainless.

    Thanks so much! That's it. Is it automatic or mechanical? There's nothing on the case that would indicate that to me besides the thin case. Also, how many jewels, and where is the movement made?
