You can thank Queens Gambit as this was the watch model I believe was featured in the show.

You can also give a big thank you to our very own panel member Kathy, who loaned Bulova an original version, so they could replicate the watch perfectly down to the smallest detail.

What a great job they did.

Is this a mechanical watch?

Looks to be an exact version of the original.

Yes, I was told the other day that they will be gifting me one when they come out in April.  It is very generous of Bulova and I look forward to seeing it in hand!

Yes, it has been very cool and an honor for me to let them use my watch.  Very much looking forward to seeing them side by side.

As a couple of people asked for a review of the new watch I put a little one together.  Sorry it took so long, Bulova had my original watch in their museum until just recently.  I don't make youtube videos so the quality is just so so ;-)

Bulova did a fantastic job on redesigning the new American Girl by Bulova.  It is so close to the original with lovely detail.  I love it.
