    I'm looking at it and wondering "what should I do with it"?. It needs a service and a new crystal. The design is a little bit out of my 30ies and 40ies collection...but still, I like it and the machine looks amazing!
    It will cost me at least 80-100 USD.
    What's your opinion on this?
    Thanks in advance

    Service it, get it a new crystal and a new strap, and wear it proudly.

    It's drop dead gorgeous so give it to me!!! Or just have it serviced and fixed up.

    It's so good looking it's well worth it.

    Selling it to me at a loss seems to be the most prudent course of action available.

    I like it and would service it...I don't have a watch with a racing stripe.

    I like it. Get it a shave and a haircut and he'll look handsome again. :)
    Always give a word or a sign of salute when meeting or passing a friend, even a stranger, when in a lonely place. Show respect to all people and grovel to none.

    WOW! I'm really glad with all your enthusiastic comments!
    The Bulova site is really cool. I think I'll follow your advise and get it clean and sharp.
    Will post some pics after...
    Cheers!

    Yes, please do service it and get a new crystal.
    I hope to continue building my Bulova collection, myself, as I love their vintage watches.
    This one is a unique style, but still has tons of charm and in no way too outdated to wear.
