    Vintage Bulova Pocket watch.

    Hello,
    Just wanted to share a few pictures on a Pocket watch that I have had for about 30 years! Went through the washing machine 23 years ago, my wife felt real bad! The jeweler that went through and cleaned it and oiled it said the movement was from 1921. Haven't done any more than used it when my other watch was getting service. Wound it and checked how it was doing keeping time, just the other day, 25-30 seconds over 24 hrs. Not bad for an old pocket watch! Vance.

    Thanks everyone! I would try opening the watch case, but don't see how and with my hands, I know I should have someone else do that!

    I can only agree to this. It look stunning and even more amazing to think it survived a trip through a washing machine.
