WWII A-11 Issue Box

Submitted by barkerka on October 9, 2020 - 3:10pm


Hello Group - 

I am looking for anyone that may have a better photo of the attached box sealing tape, in particular the logo seen on the left side of the bottom, (it appears to be a coat of arms with planes circling a globe ??).  These attached photos were downloaded from a search that popped up when looking for original packing and I am yet to find the original posting site.

In making a few boxes for my own collection, I have been able to source all other aspects except for the tape.   Any leads on what that logo may look like are greatly appreciated.  


Frozen canon pnion

Disassembling 10AK 21J movement and am unable to remove the canon pinion. Tried the usual presto tool, then stout tweezer, then pin vise. Won’t budge. Tried watch oil, clock oil, penetrating oil between center wheel and CP and soldering iron to apply heat hoping the oil will travel inside the CP. Have tried several rounds of this for a couple of days. All the tools will slip off while the CP stays put. Pinion is a closed top.  Anyone have similar challenge or advice? Thanks.

I'm wondering if I can find a bezel for this watch.  And/or I noticed this year there's a remake of this watch, and the limited edition has the same case size, so what's the likelihood Bulova will sell a new bezel for this series....and that it will fit.  Note, the basic model remake is a different size.


Bulova Duncan 1948 7 AK 21 Jewels Button

Good afternoon,

I've been searching the Web, E-Bay etc for a 1948 movement for spares for my watch. The part I was looking for is the " Bulova Stamped Button" which was on the watch when I received it over 30 years ago, however those that I found were unstamped.

The nearest I found was a 7 AK movement vintage 1949 with a stamped button, but not a Duncan judging by the Dial  and I tust this will be a suitable  replacement.

1977 Set O Matic Diver 666 Bezel

I picked up this 1977 diver recently.  It has a 1133.10 movement that was missing parts but is running now and I just need a bezel.   It appears this came with the Pepsi bezel with the red to 15 seconds.  I picked up a NOS bezel on Ebay.  It is part #BT/857W 1-Turning bezel Group 6.    This one is a Pepsi also but to 20 seconds.   It came with the spring and bezel insert for $60 and I had a $25 coupon so I jumped on it.  I figure if I cant use it someone else here might.   That being said anyone know the part number for this watch bezel and the watch for NOS bezel that I picked up?

Hello everyone, I'm trying to find a date corrector wheel for an 11 AOACB movement like the one pictured here:

Date corrector wheel for 11AOACB movement, example photo.

I have lots of new Bulova parts to trade, including winding stems, staffs, setting levers, screws, also a lot of used parts as well. Mostly for 7 through 11 movements, though I have some parts for 5's through 17 AH too. Thank you in advance!

GEMEX Leather Bracelet Restoration

Submitted by JimDon5822 on August 20, 2020 - 4:40pm

Received this GEMEX watch strap in a lot off of ebay.   I noticed that the silver areas had residue around them.  After further review it appears to be dried leather.  The strap appears to be for a 1957 Princeton/Webster/Viscount.   I noticed the ends seemed to be hinged.  Well I took it apart and found that you could insert new leather.  I cut out a small piece of the only leather I had and it restored nicely.  I think it needs a darker lizard skin but am happy with the results.   I thought I would share.   The only thing is I cannot figure out the spring bars.
