Hey all.

I called Perrins in Toronto and they don't have this stem,  Also called Bulova Toronto and they wanted to sell me a used stem for $10 plus shipping.

I was directed to Jules Borel but I don't know if the 11ANAC is the same stem a the 11ANC.

Any help or advice would be appreicated.

Accutron 214 battery question

Picked up a near mint condition Accutron 214 today but the only battery I have is a 394 without a battery spacer.

I tried it in the watch and it doesn't work. I'm not sure if the module is the issue or if I need a different battery.

I'm hoping there might be an Accutron collector or two here who can give me some advice.

Did Bulova make a self-winding pulsations doctor's watch?

Hi everyone.  New member here.  I signed up to ask a question about a Bulova i saw yesterday and I'm hoping member here can give me some info about it.

I saw a Bulova self-winding medical watch with the outside dial having a pulsations chapter and above the six o'clock marker was the caduceus.

The dial was a sliver colour and the case was gold filled with a steel case back.

I've seen the medical dial Accutrons but have never seen a vintage self-winding model with the pulsations markings. Has anyone seen these?

Crystal for 1967 Dive Watch

Had this watch serviced and the crystal replaced as it was cracked. The new one doesn't have the same shape as the original, which really makes the look of the watch IMO. The orig had a gentle curve adfevto edge and sat close to the bezel. Does anyone know a # for the crystal, or better yet have one that I can buy? :) pics coming next, gotta get to my pc

 

thank you,

Proper Mainspring Winder for Bulova 17AH

Hi,

I have several Bulova 17AH pocket watches which I am in the process of servicing and have ran into an issue trying to wind the mainspring.  None on my mainspring winders seem to work for this spring, the rod with the pin which is on the crank (not sure of the propper name) is either not the correct size to fit or the one which does fit has a long protrusion instead of a pin and it is too long to catch on the opening/hole on the mainspring.
