Additional Information

I believe this one is the 1940 Bulova "Stamford" model. I originally bought it to use for parts. But after receiving it I took the movement apart and everything looked good, so I cleaned and oiled it and it ran perfectly. It wanted to live so bad, I had to show it a little love. This is the little ugly duckling as I received it.

This is how it responded to a little TLC.

Agree with Stamford. How do you get the dial to come out so nice?

I had it refinished. I wasn't real impressed with the way this one turned out.

Ah, I thought perhaps you a trick up your sleeve for cleaning, thanks

Stamford all the way. I think the dial is nice, the watch looks great.

Looking with zoom I can see the marks on the dial.

Poor job by you-know-who. 

Definitely rather have a  poor original than a  poor redial .

Me too Bobbee. Kind of like an automobile, I rather have one with a faded paint job rather than one with a bad paint job.
