Dean Martin Bulova?

Submitted by dorbes on February 2, 2021 - 6:12pm

Hello all,

I am new here and think this is such a great platform to share and learn.  That being said, I have always been a Dean Martin fan and came across an article the other day with this pic and I am trying to see what type of watch he is wearing.  The article said that Bulova was the sponsor for the Variety Show in 1966 so they assumed it was in fact a Bulova.  If that is the case and anyone can try to give me their best guess that would be appreciated as I wanted to then purchase one that is similar.  The author said that it was most likely an Accutron.

Thank you for posting.  It looks to me to be a Forum $20 Gold coin watch.

Thanks for the input.  I was hoping that it was a Bulova.  Wish I had a better pic but I cannot find anything on line.

I checked a lot of Dean Martin photos and found one photo of Dean wearing a Cartier Tank.   I could find very few other images of him wearing watches.  He always seemed to have cuffed sleeve shirts.

Thanks.  I know Sinatra gave him one with an inscription on the back and it sold at an auction several years ago.  I do not want to get off topic too much since its not related to Bulova.  I really appreciate the info.
