I bought this watch recently (as best I can tell looking through this site is that it matches this one - https://www.mybulova.com/watches/1938-minute-man-8377). I've never really been interested in watches until recently when some interesting/valuable pieces came into my hands via my step-father (a long retired watch maker).
I'd often though one day I'd get around to buying a Bulova watch in particular, and was prompted by the recent acquisitions to add to the collection. I bought the watch for sentimental reason so value is of no interest to me (some years ago I had the honour of spending some time with, and hearing stories from a member of the Bulova family).
The gold filling is chipped on the (6) lugs. My question here is firstly, can they be patched/repaired? And secondly if it can, is it worth doing and will a repair stop further loss of the gold from the fringes of the chips?
Other than that the watch is in good condition, very clean an keeps good time. I'm thrilled to finally own one and this along with the others in my collection will get passed down through my family along with the stories behind them all...
