  4. Watch of Today

    I just got this Bulova Oceanographer Snorkel out of my storage . I sure like this one . Handsome looks to it in my opinion . I'm not quite sure how the bezel is constructed . It seems to have a clear glass / crystal material over the Pepsi numerals . It's nice to have it on again.....

    Very Nice Joe . Do you know which movement is in your models ? I have one or two Snorkel models of these and maybe a Caravelle also boxed up in storage . I've taken the liberty to add a few more pics of the watch and the Donor movement I finally acquired.......
  6. Watch of Today

    I got this Bulova Oceanographer for a good price several month ago only to find out that the movement was incomplete . Actually , I didn't even know what the proper movement for it was supposed to be . After some research and inquiries on the Bulova forum I decided that the Automatic movement 11ANACB was the likely contender , so after a few failed attempts to at securing the missing parts with great help from my buddy and fellow forum member , ramrod , I finally got this puppy running again . A nice looking watch in the flesh even if my pics don't do it justice .

    Hi Joe , I don't know much about these watches so I opened the caseback to take a peek and I did see the number 158 under the balance wheel ,...so I guess it is as you described .

  15. Hamilton Electric 14K Nautilus 200

    While asking if paying out $350 to get this watch repaired is practical , is something you would have to decide for yourself . It is probably the first Nautilus electric , being of the 200 series , and it is 14K solid gold , [a Big Plus ] , and it is in great looking shape . The Solid gold Hamilton Electrics Do hold their value . Having said that , I have a few Hamilton electrics in my collection and I have made repairs and serviced both the 500 and 505 movements . The later 505 movement is by far easier to repair and service , and most Nautilus watches had that movement . The 500 is tricky to repair because of the proper and delicate alignment of the 2 contact fingers . I would suggest that you get as much Information on the type of movement in your watch and contact members of the Hamilton Forum with questions as dadistic suggests . Also you may want to contact Ebay seller adamtime with any questions . He always has all things Hamilton Electric for sale . adamtime (758) 100% positive feedback In the past I have emailed Hamilton Electric Guru , Rene Rondeau through his website with questions , and he is a gracious Gentleman that will answer your questions . Good Luck Wetbird , and let us know what your outcome is .
