I recently purchased this watch from 'Timemachines' - (Mike C) and have updated the record
The iconic first generation cut corner Bulova Lone Eagle in what is most certainly the only clam shell case it has ever slept in . This watch is in remarkable condition for it's age. There is not even one watch makers service code inside the pristine case. Little green gunk here and there, a couple nicks and scratches but there is no wear on this watch - literally one of the 'rarely worn' watches we all dream of. The clam shell case is as clean and crisp as any I've seen anywhere and still closes with a distinctive snap. Mike told me he bought this watch from the nephew of the original owner who claimed to have been give the watch by the Colonel HIMSELF. An unsubstantiated provenance for certain but whoever the original owner was, he obviously cherished it mightily and treated it like the treasure it is today. Mike also supplied me with what appears to be the original strap, buckle, pins and crystal.
