    Vintage Piece Has Arrived!

    Two weeks after I won the auction from the bay, I finally have my winning item:







    Production Year: 1964
    Domed Crystal
    Hand-winding Capability
    Shock Resistant
    Anti-Magnetic
    Waterproof (I highly doubt this)

    And the pseudo wrist shot (since I can't wait):



    Truly a great vintage piece for a steal!

    Will continue to hunt down some more snipe-worthy pieces in the future.

    TFL! :)

    Know what moving it has?
    I'm thinking likely something around a Standard Time/Master Tine, which I believe was a branch of inexpensive Seiko production. Someone else may have to confirm, though.

    Probably a derivative of this one:

    bidfun-db Archiv: Uhrwerke: Bulova 11DP (Citizen 0241)

    (Technical specifications. Cal. 11DOD - the 11DP lacks a date)

    Yes. For Caravelle movements the common Bulova nomenclature was used:
    Leading number indicating the width in full lignes,
    1st letter for the movement family,
    2nd letter for the generation,
    further letters indicating features added to the base movement, e.g. B for day/date, C for sweep second (if base has none), D date etc.

    So the 11DO is the predecessor of the 11DP, and 11DOD is the same with date.

    Regards, Roland Ranfft

    That's a beauty.

    Simple and nicely aged.
