Additional Information

Hello everyone! Adding another Bulova to the database. I think this is a non-conforming (looks like a re-case/re-dial, hands may be original ). It has a 3AF Bulova movement with an X date mark putting it at 1933. Movement s/n looks like 6763. Looking to see what you all think! Thanks!

This watch is very cool but I am sorry to say we can not give it an ID because it is Non-Conforming, Bulova dial/movement, non-Bulova case.

It's no problem at all! I just thought this was cool so I thought I'd share it with you all!

What I do find interesting is the dial, which is a match for the case shape.

Someone please correct me if I'm wring, but I believe Duro did supply aftermarket cases.

The design of this case is nothing like I've seen before with any Bulova ladies model (which is why the dial shape is interesting)

At this stage I'd have to agree with it being re-cased in a non-Bulova product and as such Non-Conforming.

I bet this would look great all polished up though.

I agree, I thought it was an interesting watch so I took a chance and got it. I definitely enjoy finding different looking re-case/re-dials! I'm planning on cleaning this up soon and will post a picture when I do!

Yes, sorry 'chrome' but I'm in the Non-Conforming camp as well..........
