Hello PastyDuchy, welcome to myBulova, I agree with John and Jaroslav. this watch is a Debutante. I also updated the 3AB movement to include 1939. Thank You.

thanks for the welcome Geoff, I've actually been here for a year or two but don't post very much due to having a toddler. Lots of watches I can upload at some point although have to say I found the experience of uploading this to be more complicated than I expected, I guess the next time it'll be easier but whats with all the latin?

I thought your user ID was familiar but didn't see where you'd added any watches in the past. Adding photos to forum topics and comments like where I'm typing is a bit confusing the first couple times but it does get easier. Here's a tutorial:


Don't worry about the Latin part it isn't a special code and really doesn't relate to the task, although I did try to translate it once :)

Adding photos to new watch records is fairly easy I think?

yes it's probably not difficult if you're not trying to add an image via the comment box link for ages before scrolling down the page and seeing the relevant info :) it was a bit of hassle resizing the images but won't take anywhere near as long next time. Do you want all watches or just ones you don't have already?

are you sure the latin's not the da vinci code?

Well, we're kinda into watches so if you have an old Bulova, we'd kind of like to lust after it if you don't mind. Bring 'em on!

About the Da Vinci Code.....you shouldn't have said that out loud, now we'll have send the Iluminati over to your place (after all we have your IP address)

PS - check out Nikon ViewNX2 software for editing images, it's a free download and is easy to use
