I came across this 1962 - 23 jewel watch for sale and missed bidding on it. I think this confirms that Star produced production cases for Bulova, and identifies the five pointed stars we see on Bulova marked case backs from the 1950's and 60's as indicating production by Star Watch Case Company for Bulova..
Question: with this information verification, should we be recognizing this when posting watches? Perhaps it's time to make an addition to the identify your watch - case dropdown to reflect this.
We currently recognize the difference between "American Standard" and "Bulova American Standard".
Should we do the same with "Star" and "Bulova Star"? Star would be for "Star Watch Case Co" interior marked with no Bulova, and "Bulova Star" for cases like this one referenced as well as Bulova markings only cases displaying a five pointed star on the case back?
