Regular price $399.99 Sale

FOR SALE IS A DEBONAIRE 1963 BULOVA DRESS WATCH WITH STUNNING GLOSS BLACK DIAL WITH GROOVY APPLIED STEEL ARABIC NUMERALS.  

 

  • CASE: SLEEK AND SEXY ALL STEEL CASE MEASURING A NICE 34mm ACROSS BEZEL NOT INCLUDING ORIGINAL SIGNED CROWN By 41mm LUG TO LUG CASE HAS SOME MINOR PITTING IN THE BACK BUT OVERALL IN VERY SHARP CONDITION WITH NO SIGNS OF EVER HAVING BEEN POLISHED. THIS ONE WEARS REALLY NICE ON THE WRIST WITH THAT THIN PROFILE AND RELATIVELY WIDER DIAL/THIN BEZEL GIVING THIS SOME NICE PRESENCE.  

 

  • DIAL: THIS THING HAS AGED TREMENDOUSLY WELL. CHECK OUT THAT WELL PRESERVED GLOSS BLACK DIAL WITH THOSE ORIGINAL LUME PLOTS. SUPER SIMPLE LAYOUT WITH THE 1 LINE OF TEXT AND THOSE PROMINENT APPLIED STEEL MARKERS. CHECKOUT THE CRAZY COOL FONT USED FOR THOSE NUMERALS AT 12/3/9. I'M A SUCKER FOR A COOL SUBSECONDS DIAL, AND THIS IS A NICE ONE. THE TRITIUM ON THOSE STEEL DAGGER HANDS MATCHES BEAUTIFULLY WITH THAT ON THE DIAL. REAL CLASSY LOOK ON THIS ONE.

 

  • MOVEMENT: THIS BULOVA RUNS ON A SWISS MADE 17 JEWEL HANDWOUND MOVEMENT. I WAS TOLD THAT THIS ONE HAD BEEN RECENTLY SERVICED BY THE PREVIOUS OWNER, AND IT HAS BEEN RUNNING LIKE A TOTAL CHAMP FOR ME OVER WEEKS OF ON/OFF WRIST OBSERVATION.

 

  • WATCH IS MOUNTED ON AN INCREDIBLE NOS KALBE GENUINE ALLIGATOR STRAP WHICH IS PERIOD APPROPRIATE. I MIGHT BE JUST AS EXCITED ABOUT THE STRAP AS I AM THE WATCH...IT'S HARD TO FIND VINTAGE STRAPS IN THIS TYPE OF CONDITION.  WHAT A CLASSY AND ELEGANT PIECE WHICH DEFINES THE BULOVA OF THE EARLY 60s. I JUST LOVE A CLASSIC GLOSS DIAL, AND THIS ONE IS A GREAT EXAMPLE.
