    I'm not sure what you mean. Would you like to know what movement this is? Do you see something unusual?

    Bulova Type A-11 military watch.
    The cases are prone to chrome falling off as they were poorly coated by the Star Watch Case Co. in WW2.

    The movement is a Bulova 10AK fitted with indirect driven centre seconds, adding an extra jewel to the normal 15, making this a 16 jewel 10AKCSH (CSH=centre seconds, hacking).

    Case should comprise chrome coated nickel-silver, with fully military stamped case back. Should be a thick rubber gasket, and an inner movement dust cover/anti-magnetic cover made of iron/beryllium.

    im curious. if you knew about the movement, then why ask what's going on with the movement? was it the arrangement of the indirect sweep second? is there something else about the movement that disturbs you?

    I think you're confusing me with the TS.

    Re: What on earth is going on with this movement?

    I felt it was unusual that part of the movement covered up the Bulova Watch Co. stamp. Is that a thing that happened a lot?

    Also, thanks again to bobbee for knowing everything about Bulovas XD

    It only happened with this watch/movement, I think it was just what Bulova could come up with in the limited time as they didn't have a direct seconds movement at that time.
