Looking for Bulova pocket watch case

I've got a nice 17AE 21 jewel movement that needs a new case. Preferably gold tone. 17AE I believe  is a 12s.

Or is someone has a press fit bezel and crystal for a 12s case :) gold tone, that'll work too.

Would consider buying non-working watch if someone has a 17AE with a nice case, can always use parts.

email me [email protected] or respond here.

I haven't seen many packet watch posts.... is any body out there interested in Bulova pocket watches?

Next steps for a running vintage Bulova

My Bulova Aqua Queen, 1965 vintage with movement 7BPC has cleaned up well cosmetically. New crystal, and case looking good. I put it on Watch-O-Scope and it is running about 8 sec/day fast, amplitude 334 degrees and beat error 7.8ms. I think this looks pretty good. Is there anything I can/should do for this? Is cleaning and lube asking for trouble?

I am new to this forum, therefore, I hope I am using and searching the website correctly.  I inherited a 1926 ladies, 14K white gold filled, watch with sapphire in crown, for which I cannot discern any information.  There is no patent number.  I am hoping that maybe someone more knowledge can enlighten me.  Here's what I do know:

Manufacture year = 1926

Movement model = 6W

Movement code = Triangle

Movement jewels = 15

Movement serial # = 73032

Case serial # =517997

Case shape Rectangle with cut corners

I would like to have some information about this Bulova Longchamp purchased in 1979.

I would like to know which kind of movement has

During these years the buckle has been lost and I really appreciate if somebody could tell me which kind of buckle did it host in origin. 

Moreover, I suspect that the crown is not original, again I would like to know how was it

Many thanks

1959 Sea King gaskets

I've been working on restoring two late 1950s Sea Kings (I think).

One of the things I was not able to accomplish is fitting a fresh gasket to case. This is supposed to be a waterproof watch, but when I first cracked open the case I had to remove the old gaskets because they were deteriorated beyond use. Unfortunately I have not been able to find any NOS gaskets for this watch, and none of the flat gaskets I have in my assortment package from Otto Frei come close to fitting (all too wide plus too small or too large diameter).

11ALCD movement

1967 11ALCD movement. Was it possible to set the date on this movement without having to spin the hour hand 24 hours, in other words, a crown that pulled half way out for date and then full out for time ?

I can't find a data sheet or parts list for this movement, is there a good repository somewhere ?
