Several times a week we get inquiries as to how much someones vintage Bulova watch is worth. Rather than explain this over and over, I thought maybe we'd have one post we could possibly make a sticky for anyone inquiring.
The worth of your vintage Bulova or Accutron watch is very subjective. There are no hard and fast rules that this one is worth X amount. They are worth what someone is willing to pay for that specific watch.
Hi everyone, I'm in need of as many 11ANACB sweep second wheels (Part #6K) as I can get. Used, new, donor movements, anything would help! I have some beautiful Sea Kings that are 99% ready to go, but all require a longer pinion than the wheels I have on hand. I have a ton of new old-stock Bulova and Caravelle parts (as well as mainsprings and AS & ETA parts) that I'm happy to trade or give away to anyone in need. If anyone is ever looking for a part, just send me a message and I'll see if I have it for you. Thank you in advance!
Has anyone seen an advert for the Miss Liberty in the simulated Ruby stones?

First off I specialize in Vintage Bulova model Accutron 214 and 216 as well a Accutron Quartz repairs and Restorations.
Here is a watch out of scope of MyBulova that I had to share from a historical perspective. It is a 1974 Bulova Caravelle model #41893-9W. It is a black PVD coated case with an amazing silver/blue/black "TRON" dial. Doing research I found that the first PVD coated watch was credited to the 1972 Porsche Design experimental chronograph. The next record of one I can find is a 1975 Heuer Monaco which is given credit as the first PVD coated production watch. Quite rare and only 22 known to exist out of 100 or so produced.
