    so I got my Oceanographer back...

    from having the movement serviced and a slight clean-up. I tossed a Dimodell Jumbo strap on it and put it in rotation. The age patina and other small flaws it has I can live with. I think screwing around with the dial might actually detract because I don't know if the metallic finish could be duplicated. Anyway, the watchmaker took care of some of the items like minimising the oxy spots on the hands and more importantly, with the movement serviced it now has a whopping 40 hours of reserve power, up from about 8 when I got it.
    Not bad for a 42 year old watch....

    Great looking watch, and very wise to leave the dial alone. The patina just adds character to the watch.

    Oceanographers are great iconic Bulovas.

    Here is mine. The case is a solid piece of stainless.
    I have to use special thin curved springbars due to tight fit.

    "The watch has to be surrounded by a history.
    You need more than just a great design. You need to create an atmosphere around the product.
    Who is the company behind it? Why are they using this material?
    People need to be able to identify the watch with themselves. It's based on emotion." - Ralph Furter

    ...that's just my opinion and I've been wrong before and will be again and might be now!
