The Apollo 15 Bulova Chronograph Watch

In February 2014, before the public knew of the existence of this watch, myBulova.com sent an email to the owner Dave Scott, requesting permission to release the first photograph of the Bulova chronograph wristwatch worn by Commander Scott during the Apollo 15 mission on the surface of the moon.

It was with great pleasure that on March 21 2014, myBulova.com was the first website in the world to publicly acknowledge the existence of this watch, the first and only Bulova watch to be worn by an astronaut on the surface of the moon.

I thought it about time we started a forum where we can post pictures of myBulova.com members meeting. A few years back I was delighted to hear that a couple of members met to share a beer and a yarn about their Bulova watch addiction, ah I mean collection. Prior to myBulova.com these members were total strangers and it's a wonderful feeling to know that this site has made some lasting friendships...no marriages yet (plenty of divorces maybe..joking) but it's only a matter of time before His Excellency meets and marrys Her Excellency.

I'd like to officially put this forward to the myBulova.com community at large to scrutinize and see if it holds true. We've always had a problem dating the very early 1920s vintage Bulova wstches  and often used the first number in the case serial number to date the year of production.

Well I'd like to suggest that for pre 1924 watches (pre movement date code) we use the second number to date the year of production.

WARNING - Fake Bulova watches for sale on eBay

Submitted by mybulova_admin on June 6, 2013 - 7:12pm

I've decided to start this forum topic as a way for members to alert the wider community to the fake vintage Bulova watches being sold on eBay. Whilst it is policy here not to list any active watch sales on this site I feel a strong need to allow members of this site to post their 'genuine' concern over a watch being sold as a particular Bulova model when it is clearly not.
