Did Bulova ever make salesman's cases (aka exhibition casebacks) for their pocket watches? Or are there other salesman's cases that would hold a 17AH movement?
I recently located my grandfather's pocket watch; it had laid dormant in a box for over 40 years. It still runs perfectly, though it could use a bit of a cleanup. When I opened the caseback to get details on the movement, I found myself absolutely mesmerized watching it in action. It's so nice to see something so resolutely physical in today's digital world. That experience made me consider looking for an exhibition caseback. I'm not sure if I want to sacrifice the authenticity, but I'd definitely like to know about any options before handing it over to a watchmaker for restoration.
(For anyone interested, I've submitted the details to the my watch database. I'm happy to provide more information while that review/approval is pending.)
Thanks in advance.
