  1. I picked the up the 1945 Bulova Cadet as a non-worker on eBay, then I received a parts lot that had a Westfield case and dial. Of course, I had to get a 1940 Westfield Trojan cousin movement for it. Unfortunately, I didn't notice til this morning that the replacement Westfield had a curved dial whereas my case had a flat dial and it doesn't fit. Oh well, guess I'll have to buy more watches.
  2. OK, I disassembled the Bulova 11ac movement and wonder if this wheel is supposed to stick there on the wheel bridge. Should I take the wheel apart from the bridge as well? If it is necessary, how can I take it apart?
  3. Hello. I am working on a vintage Bulova from 60s. I am trying to take apart the movement from the case but case is in somewhat strange structure. As I tried to remove the caseback, I instead took apart the upper part. Then I removed the crystal and the dial to find the movement. Here is a problem. I cannot find a way to remove the stem from the movement from the dial side. Please help.
  4. I have a 1982 Bulova that the Clasp broke in 83, I put the watch away and forgot about it for 33 years. I'm searching for the clasp, and not having any success. Thank you in advance .
  5. Hi all, I have a Bulova sine plate with integral rotary table. It doesn't have any locking features for the plate so I don't think it was used for machining. The rotary can be locked and it does accept a dovetail block that can be clamped in place. Has anyone seen another, know what they were used for or when it might have been made? Thanks, henryr
  6. Hello, Its been a while since I've posted, so I have decided to share this problem I am having with a bulova 11BKACB. I am not familiar with this specific caliber, but am very familiar with the cal. 11 family from Bulova. Good robust movements without too many idiosyncrasies. This watch I received with the day wheel not showing through the window, so there was already an issue with it. After cleaning and oiling, the day wheel begins to turn just after the date, but for some reason stops short of turning over and just clicks back to the previous day. I have tried opening up the day indicator detention spring (part 586) and putting a little grease on it, but its no-go. This would usually be an easy issue but the thing has given me a headache with the number of times I've had to remove the dial. The other issue is that the parts are mostly all exclusive to this particular. I'd like to replace the calendar driving wheel , the day wheel and that pesky part 506 is I could find it....any input appreciated. Watch runs strong other than that. Regards, J This last pic was pre cleaning!!! As you can see it looks filthy.
  7. I've not been buying watches recently, but couldn't resist this lovely US-made Bulova from 1944 - the year of my birth. It's in a 14k, rose gold-filled case, and has a very nice Grade 8-AH movement inside. It's the usual dimensions for a watch of this period: 41mm lug to lug, and 21mm wide. Small by today's standards, but that doesn't bother me - I wear any size. This was an eBay purchase. The seller has a beautiful collection of mainly vintage Bulova watches. If I had more money, I'd have bought one or two more. I won't give details publicly as the site policy is not to promote watch sales or sellers, but if anyone is really interested in looking at his vintage Bulova watches, PM me.
  8. Hi, I'm looking for some tips on how to best deal with removing battery corrosion from a plate. The plate below is from my father's Accutron 218. The battery failed and leaked at some point leaving a salt-like deposit that seems to be insoluble. I've tried an acid bath (vinegar), alkali bath (sodium bicarbonate), and good old fashioned elbow grease to no avail. At this point I'm thinking of just letting it be since it seems the plating is flaking off beneath and the corrosion shouldn't impact the function of the movement. If anyone knows about a magic bullet though I'd sure like to hear.
  9. I collect mostly Bulova's, here are a few in an old Timex Case from the 1940/50's.
