HOW MUCH IS YOUR WATCH WORTH?

Several times a week we get inquiries as to how much someones vintage Bulova watch is worth.  Rather than explain this over and over, I thought maybe we'd have one post we could possibly make a sticky for anyone inquiring.

The worth of your vintage Bulova or Accutron watch is very subjective.  There are no hard and fast rules that this one is worth X amount.  They are worth what someone is willing to pay for that specific watch.

Looking for some Bulova Parts

Hi there, I wonder if you can help me, I’m looking for a complete Bulova 13AT Balance or failing that a Balance Spring. I’m also looking for a complete Bulova 9AN movement ( preferably working ) and a pair of hands to fit a 9AN movement 

If anyone knows alternative Bulova parts that would fit the above as replacements I’d be really grateful for any advice. Many thanks Guys !

Not sure about the rules so would it be ok to put a couple of pictures of a clock I have that has a watch mechanism? I’m looking for as much information as I can find, it has the bulova 2141 movement. 
thanks. 
 

What part is missing from this 5AR and what movements have it?

What part, other than the stem, is missing from the 5AR movement?  And what other movements have an interchangable part?  The 5AR appears to be too new to be in any of the parts lists.

I know what part is missing and the manner in which it became so.  I thought it might be more fun to ask this way.

Hello All,

I picked up a M1 Bulova at a thrift shop and everything looks really good and is running.  I put it on the timegrapher and the amplitude is only around 200 degrees.  Is that normal for these? I have only fixed a couple of elgin pocket watches up to this point and they had much higher amplitudes.

 

If it isnt normal do you all know what mainspring would fit this movement?  Thanks
