    1959 Bulova back from getting cleaned up - Pic Heavy...

    I took my 1959 Bulova over to the local watch shop to get cleaned up a bit last week, finally got it back today...Although not everything could be cleaned to perfection (dial, hands..hey, its a '59!) Looks 20 times better than before! Let me know your thoughts.

    Thanks for posting.
    I love these classic Bulovas. I think they offer one of the best values for money of any vintage brand. This one is a particularly nice model.

    The lugs and starburst dial are real feaures of that watch!

    I used to have that exact watch! Where'd you get it?

    it is a super cool dial and scalloped bezel in person, pictures never seemed to capture it in all it's glory. I had to let it go based solely on it's size. It was way too small on my wrist.

    I can't remember, did that one have an American or German auto movement in it?

    Yeah, that looks like what was in mine. American made!

    Thanks all, I'm pretty sure it was American made. Although it's small on my wrist, I think I'll keep this one around.
