    Some Bulovas from the 40s & 50s ...

    I thought I'd post a few Bulova watches of a similar style that I've picked up over the years. Do you have any Bulovas?

    First some Bulova Excellencies:

    From 1951 -



    From the 40s -



    From 1950 -



    Another Bulova from the 40s -



    An engraved bezel Bulova from the 40s -



    and, finally another engraved bezel Bulova from 1950 -

    Some lovely models. Thanks for posting.
    I believe that Bulova is one of the best vintage watches to collect. They were/are big on standardized parts and there are still tons of "war surplus" parts still out there for 1940s Bulovas as they were a major military supplier in WWII.
    They made good quality stuff and they are still relatively cheap to collect.
    Personally I have a 1936 black dial and a rose gold 1949 Bulova. I would recommend any new collector to take a serious look at Bulova.

    Beautiful faces and cases! I'd love to see movement pics too...

    "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!

    Beautiful examples. The rectangular 40's and the tonneau are ones i'd actually wear.
