Bulova cal. 10AN 21 jewel movement

I am very familiar with the Bulova cal. 10AN movement in its 15 and 17 jewel configurations, as I own and have serviced several Bulova models with this movement.   But I recently purchased a Bulova in an Anchor step-sided gold-filled case with a 21 jewel cal. 10AN movement.  The cap stones are friction fit, not screwed down, and the movement is marked "6 adjustments", which would lead me to believe this is an unusually high quality of finish for the cal. 10AN.

Just how fragile is the 8AE balance?

I am working on an excellent condition Squadron B with a '47 8AE movement.

I could almost say for certain that the balance wheel oscillators well before disassmbly. However, after very carefully removing the dust shield, the upper balance wheel pivot was broken.

When looking for a parts movement, I noticed many 8AE's for sale or bid without a balance wheel.

Are the 8AE's balance wheels that fragile?

A9 Academy Award Date Code?

Did Bulova date any of the Academy Award watches with an A9?

I have, over some time, acquired a few women's Academy Award watches including a "J", a "B" and two "F"'s.

Both "F"'s were purchased from different sellers. Both are white gold filled ("FF?") and have casebacks dated A9. Both have 21 jewel 6BC movements dated A9. However, the Roman numerals scribed into the case fronts do not match the last three numbers of either case back.

So, I have a conundrum about dating either watch. Can the A9 be correct for an AA?

Newspaper clippings about Bulova (company, staff and history)

Submitted by mybulova_admin on February 9, 2018 - 8:57pm

As I search through numerous online newsletter databases, I'm always coming across interesting articles that relate the the Bulova Watch Company and its staff, innovation, history and product lines.

I thought we should have a central repository for all the old newspaper clippings.
