Additional Information

Ok gents, I'm going to be a little silly with the pictures here, but we just don't see the complete package like this from the 1930's very often.

I believe this is the 1939 Buckingham, with original bracelet, outter box, and display case.  It also comes with the Bulova Guarentee Bond as well as an extra link for said original bracelet and an ORIGNAL cardboard display cutout!  Woooooow...

The only difference I see is this is possibly missin the center seconds hand shown in the advertisement.

Definately a display piece for my collection.

Great match to the advert. Here's hoping you can source the second hand for this beauty. Agree...a great display piece this will be.

Over the top, especially that little cardboard insert. The watch is in perfect condition, it looks unworn. The color of the display case is as vibrant as the day it was made. This is a fabulous find plains, congratulations. I'd better not see this one listed for sale.

Wow! that is a spectacular watch and display. Looks as though it was only ever worn on special occasions. Is this 10AE movement designed for a center second hand?

I believe that the brass colored wheel on the top of the train bridge is the center second hand driver. There are much more talented and qualified opinions out there on the panel though. What do you think.

Plains I just bought a novelty bank for my son that was a cast iron version of this presentation box. Now I have a near flawless version to go off of in my restoration. This is a tremendous find. Congratulations. Perfect match to the ad.
