A mystery of an old Bulova (?) watch
Good morning experts,
My mother-in-law, who died recently, had this watch (see http://www.bfcollection.net/images/bulova_01.jpg ) since the early 1950's. It was given to her in the Soviet Union. Yesterday, for the first time I noticed that the brand was Bulova, and not one of the Soviet brands they manufactured back then. The back cover contains a Soviet gold proof mark 583, and an abbreviation, in Cyrillic, MDMF5.
Bulova was not a household name in the Soviet Union. In fact, I have never heard of it until we moved to the United States. I wonder if it possible to find out whether it’s a real Bulova watch and what may be the story behind it.
Thank you very much!
