Post all of your new Bulova watch ads from 1950-1959 here.
December 1951 ad.
New AA variant, "J".
Billings Gazette July 16, 1953
Academy Award "C"
- You know I've seen these and always thought someone just replaced a shot ribbed dial. Apparently this is a smooth with dial on the ribbed case. I've found a couple of the same ad in different newspapers.
Two ads for the SUTTON, top from 1954 in Texas, the lower one from 1953 in California.
Attached to the top Sutton ad above was a watch called the Gedney, but is known on this site as the
After more searching, I came across several more naming it the Gedney, in four seperate States in the US.
So, along with the Texas advert that has been snipped, but I still have the original pdf file for, that is four ads in four states, with a couple more in the same states.
What is going to happen now? We have THREE different ID's for this watch!
Just to make it interesting, I found this 1959 ad too.
Another ad, this time a Bulova advert not a jewelers, naming this the Gedney.
No date, but the Berkshire with pitched Dauphine hands and Lady Berkshire and the American Girl would put this ad at around 1953-54.
1956 and 1955 ads for the Engineer.
Here is an unusual thing.
Does anyone remember Jerin's Boxed set? Well here it is, 1952 ad.
If anyone wants the full pdf page which is too big for me to upload here, it has the mens and ladies sets. three-quarter page ad. PM me.
You all get one guess at who said: "please don't try to pass this set off as genuine Bulova, Plainsmen, it's obviously not" here in this thread: http://www.mybulova.com/node/2693
I'll give you a clue- Frank Lloyd Wright. HaHaHa!
oooooo Yes, the box signature looks identical !
The Watch Case in the set was/is not signed and the Dial a non Bulova replacement.
In the future if You'd like to call Me out on any matters bobbeee please do so when I am available.
But Jerin's set was genuine, as is this.
The set, apart from the watch, is almost identical.
Your credibility rating is decreasing, as you try to split hairs.
EDIT:- Calling you out? I was posting an ad and stating a fact, if you check out the linked thread, you stated the set was not genuine Bulova, I was merely setting the record straight in a humourous manner.
Who knows where you have been, or when/if you were returni
g, or even cared?
The Watch in the boxed set (see link posted above) had an unsigned Case and shows a Dial with traits non-conforming to what We know as Bulova - a Frankie.
The only thing I see as 'genuine' is the Movement.
We know the watch is not all Bulova, as discussed in the above link.
Strange, you seem to have forgotten this comment perhaps?
"My concern is the display box, although the logo is incorrect someone went to great lengths to produce it, the Chinese maybe?"

Many different ladies including a few Academy Awards I don't know that we've seen.
There's that good old Lady Berkshire again. Now that's a lot of ladies watches. Same we can't find these ads in better detail. So much information is lost and is a real shame.
