Reserved Mens Watch Bulova Whale Automatic 1971

This is a great watch. I have only seen one other and it is in my husband's collection.

The dial is a to die for color of slate blue and in perfect condition. Dial has Bulova 23 automatic and whale all in white. There is a day date window at 3 o'clock. Silvertone hour markers and hands with a sweeping second hand. The first photo makes the dial appear faded in areas. It is NOT. It is perfect. I think what you are seeing is glare. Please refer to the straight on photo for accuracy.

Crystal has some scratches that do not distract.

Crown is marked Bulova.

Movement is marked Bulova and is 23 jewels, automatic, and runs.

Case is stainless steel and marked Bulova N1 for 1971. Back cover is engraved with name of original owner. Bezel shows some scratches from wear. Originally this watch had a polished finish. If you have ever owned a stainless watch with a polished finish you know how hard it is to keep it shiny. If this were my watch I would take it to a watch repair person get it cleaned and lubricated and then have him put a brushed finish on the bezel. This would keep the watch looking and running perfectly for a long time. These 23 jewel watches run a long time before they need service. More jewels=more time between servicing.

This watch is marked 4 times....crown, case, movement, dial.

The band is not original and is a saddle brown leather band that is 9 1/2 inches long which is great for the guy with the larger wrist.

Price will reflect the rarity of this watch. The combination of the blue dial and the saddle brown leather band gives this watch a Ralph Lauren style. If you wear blue jeans and oxford shirts and sweaters..... this watch is for you.

This watch will require priority and signature confirmation for $7.95 in the US. In Canada this watch will be shipping by Priority registered mail for $24.00. NO EXCEPTIONS.

No buyers with less than 10 positive feedbacks. This is due to new buyers not understanding the vintage watch market.

This watch does NOT use a battery. A true 'green' watch.

This watch may or may NOT be running when you receive it. If it isn't running just gently rock the watch back and forth. This winds the watch. DO NOT SHAKE THE WATCH TO WIND. The movement of your wrist winds the watch. So as you wear it throughout the day it is gently winding itself.

This watch is NOT waterproof.

This watch is a vintage timepiece and should be treated as such.
