COMING AT YOU IS A CRAZY COOL 1970 BULOVA REF.31000 CHRONO IN NEAR MINT CONDITION

  • CASE: SPORTY CUSHION SHAPED BULOVA CHRONO CASE IN PRETTY DAMN NEAR MINT CONDITION.   THIS GUY MEASURES A LARGE 37mm ACROSS NOT INCLUDING ORIGINAL SIGNED CROWN. THIS THING IS REALLY SHARP MAINTAINING ITS ORIGINAL FACTORY BRUSHING THROUGHOUT AND SHARP EDGES. THIS FELLA REALLY WEARS MORE LIKE A 38-39mm PIECE WITH THE THIN BEZEL AND WIDE DIAL. 
  • DIAL: SO LUSCIOUS AND LOVELY. THIS NEAR MINT DIAL LOOKS ABSOLUTELY THE CATS MEOW. I LOVE THAT DARK GREYISH BLUE FINISH WHICH HAS HELD UP AMAZINGLY. THOSE CREAMY WHITE SUBDIALS REALLY POP ESPECIALLY WITH THOSE BLACK HANDS. THE HANDSET ON THIS IS PARTICULARLY CLEAN AND SHARP. THERE’S SOMETHING SO SIMPLE AND NO-NONSENSE ABOUT THIS FACE WHICH IS BOTH IMPACTFUL AND HIGHLY LEGIBLE.

MOVEMENT: THIS SLEEK CHRONO IS  POWERED BY THE VENERABLE VALJOUX 7733. I BELIEVE THE PREVIOUS OWNER HAD THIS SERVICED IN 2021. THE CHRONO WORKS CRISPLY AND THE TIME KEEPING IS SPOT ON. WATCH WINDS SMOOTHLY AND CARRIES A SOLID POWER RESERVE.

 

THIS SPORTY CHRONO IS MOUNTED ON A HANDSOME BROWN LEATHER STRAP WHICH WEARS EXTRA SPORTY. WHILE MOST OF THE BULOVA CHRONOS FROM THIS ERA WERE THE DEVIL-DIVER MODELS, THE 31000 WAS A SLIGHTLY CLASSIER AND MORE VERSATILE PIECE WHICH REALLY COULD BE AN EVERYDAY WEAR WATCH.
