Florentine Finish on the bezel face. Instead of putting an aftermarket "dotted" crystal and hands that are too long (and extend passed the dots) as the hack shops do...
Because "we" aren't children who can't read analog clocks or cursive. " "We can tell time just by looking... As we do on classic Movado's. Although this case model was never issued by Bulova as a Spaceview model...These were available to be converted by the jewelers at the time. This is a correct and proper way to do so...
No aftermarket parts were used, and a rare/correct Bulova factory "Spear" style hour and minute hands were installed along with a "Fils" Sweep Second Hand. Unlike the schlock from the Chop Shops who destroy these by the thousands (mentioned below)... This is a unique and stunning "correct" vintage beauty.
The first successful, and BEST, Electronic Timepiece! The only watch that MUST be in every Watch Lovers collection!
This was completely disassembled and deep cleaned. Friction points oiled and the setting crown mechanism has been greased per Bulova Spec's. Phased to run on the modern, readily available and Accucell 1.35v battery... No need for diodes or "purple dollops" on the Coil Assembly. No reason to reduce the value of these classics by altering the electronics.This tests and times beautifully and within spec. No need to alter and stress the electronics on this beauty... Adding stress and trapping the windings and limiting expansion/contraction movement? 70% of the Coil issues are on the Battery side (due to owners using incorrect batteries back in the day)..
What value does that have now... Much less in the future?
It'll be worth nothing more than what it is... Invest in a Classic that you can be proud of... And that will retain value. Look for the Chop Shops in CA, GA, VA, FL, PA, Seattle, Bulgaria and the UK. They spit them out, by the dozens every month, to unsuspecting buyers for profit..Thereby ruining classic collectible watches by the thousands. Why feed the destructive beast? I use the Mobius products that were specified by Bulova and I install new gaskets. I work on these the Old School way. And I see no reason to alter these... It only decreases their value. The goal is to get these right.. So that we can enjoy and preserve these Historic works of Horology/Engineering/Art. I send these out double boxed to protect them, with a multi page Instruction Set, an extra battery, insured, with Signature Confirmation Service.. I do these RIGHT becau.
If you want cheap, badly thrown together FAKE CRAP at a "low" price point... I'm NOT your guy!
