    Bvlgari AL38A movement identification

    Hello everybody,

    Long time reader first time poster. I am new to the watch collecting hobby so please bear with my questions.

    Hope someone here can help me identify the movement of the AL38A I was given. I was told it was NEVER serviced so if anyone could recommend a watch maker in Melbourne, Australia that would be much appreciated.

    The case being aluminum have a few dents and chips as well. Is a watch maker able to smooth them out as well or is this beyond what they normally do?

    Thank you in advance.

    Regards,

    Bearable.

    If you open the watch and take a pic, we might be able to help.
    The case being in Aluminium, which is a very unusual material, I doubt a watchmaker can do anything else that polish the case.

    Of course, you can always send it back to the manufacturer, they will do a wonderful job.

    Hello jason_recliner and Janne,

    Thanks for the replies. Maybe I will repost in the fashion section. After much rumaging around the internet it seems to be listed as MVA 035.1V (base ETA 2892-A2).

    I am just going to shop around for a local watchmaker to service it. It is much too expensive to send it to Bvlgari for servicing and repair.

    Regards,

    Bearable

    That sounds very likely.
