Bulova 1926 Princine
Just arrived from ebay seller today - Looks like a Princine to me. Needs a very thorough clean of both case and movement. Seller says that it keeps good time although I haven't had time to test this.
I've seen a couple of very clean restoration jobs on here. Does anyone know what the dial finish is? Is it laquered silver plate? Will try the usual inert cleaners before resorting to something a little more aggressive if needed. Might also need to do something with the crystal - it's very scratched as you might expect. At first I thought it was glass, but it fell out while I was cleaning it and is definitely acrylic. I assume originals aren't easy to come by!!
Thanks for your thoughts
