Very nice - the sweep second goes round in one continuous, smooth motion, does it not?

 

It does sweep really smooth! If I'm not mistaken, the quartz movement has 3 prong crystal instead of the usual 2 prongs. This allows the movement to beat multiple times faster than a regular quartz movement.

The sweep is beautiful! So smooth. I own about 14 different watches from $200 to $7000 and this one is actually the most comfortable wear of all. These list for $500 but you can find them new around $380 or so. HIGHLY recommended.

Hmmmmm. Vid isn't working on my end. Can you guys see it?

 

Yes - it has to be downloaded first. Not sure if you can embed uploaded video in ipboard but I will check.

Very nice - what's the movement in this one?

Bulova calls it their Precisionist movement. It'a a very accurate quartz movement with a sweep second hand, as opposed to the traditional one tick per second quartz movements. I've wanted one for a while and this one popped up on my ebay search with 4 minutes left to go. You can buy this watch on ebay right now for $189....but that is the lowest price I've seen anywhere. So, I'm happy to have got it a little cheaper than that, even with the shipping charge.

    • That is my nightmare, unfortunately I have witnessed it, not even once and I have not serviced many watches only a handful. 🙂
    • No no no no no, that is just one more reason you must have one. 😉
    • Thanks for posting the pictures and measurements.  I am going to make a hardwood mock-up and experiment with an old donor balance, and see how I like it.  So far, I can see it being rather handy for certain aspects of balance work.
    • so you would like us to look up your previous question and answer it? okay let's see how to figure out what your previous question is, I know I'll look on your profile and see if I can figure out that? so it looks like your previous question was this "Schematic or diagram for 7115 movement" if I answer the question here anyone looking on the other thread won't find it and they'll be confused wondering if anyone answered your question or not? Then there's a problem with that question number 7115 is a nice number but watches are usually made by a company so is this the company name? usually when people don't post pictures of their watch I go to the site below and look it up for them so we can see a picture and get a little technical description. fortunately there appears to only be one 7115 because otherwise if there was more than one we would be confused. Normally on pin lever type watches they were never really meant to be serviced. But on this discussion group people have service them before. But typically watches that were meant to be serviced aren't going to have service information. Then even if it did have service information somebody would've had to have scanned it to a PDF which conveniently are not finding in the usual places I look for PDFs. But I did get you parts list it's at the second link. Just because the parts list exist doesn't mean you're going to get the parts. A parts list indicates more information that I thought existed. then as a reason why you posted an update to ask if anyone has answered your previous question as opposed to asking that in the question itself? http://www.ranfft.de/cgi-bin/bidfun-db.cgi?10&ranfft&0&2uswk&Ronda_7115 http://cgi.julesborel.com/cgi-bin/matcgi2?ref=RON_7115
    • Buler appears to have had a large number of watch trademark names. Somewhere of the order of thirty.  http://mikrolisk.de/show.php?site=280&suchwort=Buler&searchWhere=all#sucheMarker More about them here -> https://www.buler.ch/en/brand/history.html
