Who Manufactured the Manual Wind Japan Movements (1041.10)

Submitted by august1410 on November 23, 2020 - 1:57pm

I have a 1976 Bulova Oceanographer with a Japan marked dial and movement. I was wondering if anyone knew who made the movement? Miyota, Citizen, Seiko? About when was the changeover from Swiss to Japanese in the Bulova branded watches.

I have a decent collection of Japanese made watches (mostly Seiko), so a Japanese movement in a Bulova isn't a deal breaker when I buy one. One of my newer Bulova watches is from the current Citizen ownership era.

I have been researching this and believe it is a version of the Citizen Caliber 0241


Citizen 0241

I just noticed this one actually even is marked as a Caravelle in the picture.   I would say this confirms it.
