    • It’s been partially disassembled and I must say it looks good except a little corrosion on the battery connector. I’m not so sure whether this would affect the behaviour of the watch. See what you think and let me know whether I should pay attention to something else.
    • Hi Shane if you get a chance have a look on google drive I put PDfs on there. What is your situation No pc no broadband coverage or just no time. Also where are you located what country.
    • I am also finding within my limitations of Horticultural nomenclature and industry abbreviations, information isn't readily available within the time I have to invest.  I am working on the former, I can do nothing for the latter. Thanks again. Shane
    • Its odd, it looks to be related to the Citizen 3100 and its relatives http://www.ranfft.de/cgi-bin/bidfun-db.cgi?10&ranfft&&2uswk&Citizen_3100 ... but more so to the 700 series. http://www.ranfft.de/cgi-bin/bidfun-db.cgi?10&ranfft&&2uswk&Citizen_0700 .. other than the fact that the balance arrangement matches neither. It also shares some similarity to the 0201 (and thus to the HMT) The 0241 has a similar balance arrangement.. and there is a Bulova version of that designated Bulova 11DP (Citizen 0241) and which Ranfft mentions as being used in Caravelle N0 (1970), so it does indeed appear to be a Citizen/Bulova/Caravell collaboration movement, but I cannot figure out which one.  http://www.ranfft.de/cgi-bin/bidfun-db.cgi?10&ranfft&&2uswk&Citizen_0241 http://www.ranfft.de/cgi-bin/bidfun-db.cgi?10&ranfft&&2uswk&Bulova_11DP    
    • I am always appreciative of the generosity I receive from others, not just with respect to their knowledge but the time it takes for them to extend it (a value I would like to instill within my grandson).  Even the most amiable of people can become frustrated with taking time away from their own interests and repeatedly helping those of us with less experience. Thank you. With respect to my personal situation (not having internet access from home, working ten hours per day and commuting three) downloading blocks of PDFs while I'm working and searching through them at home would be ideal. Information necessary for a niche interest can be difficult to reliably find from time to time and fade into obscurity as the natural attrition of the people participating, as well as, the corporate entities supporting them takes hold.  The Boyscout within believes,  having the information under the control of the people most likely to make use of it sounds to be a logical goal. Thanks for your attention, consideration and yes, your opinions. Shane
