Well, let's give this a try and see how well we do. Using the only data available, there are no ads in the DB showing this model so I have to resort to the crystal package which says " Bulova 1200D, 21st Century". So what do we call it?
In reply to Unknown I say - can't ID by Geoff Baker
I've never been one to put alot of stock in crystal data either unless the shape is odd and the fits perfect, then I wouldn't have mentioned it. I've discussed this watch with Lisa as she has one as well. She was able to find the "21st Century" model listed in a 1954 Bulova price listing. Sold for $65.00 back then.
Unknown from me.
I checked Lisa's site. I can't imagine the case dimensions are any different on subject watch. So with crystal package which fits and lists only 21st Century AND Lisa's reference that this model name shows up as such in an official Bulova price list, it's getting pretty close to tentative (if we have such a thing any longer). While the price list doesn't show which watch it is, it does show that model name existed.
So do we have two choices Unknown and Known, or was admin saying there would be three choices after consensus and subsequent publicly published? I thought he was saying three. Unknown, tentative, or model name "sure". Maybe the tentative part shows up in some comments field of the watch if published as unknown under the two choice system?
In reply to Unknown from me. I checked by William Smith
Unknown, but should be listed in a comments section as a possible 21st Century with the crystal spec's the only proof to the possible ID as of now, and waiting for a ad to surface to confirm it or rule it out.
Does it have a shadow dial, or is that just the way the light is hitting the dial??
In reply to Unknown, but should be listed by OldTicker
In reply to The Watch Owners changes to by FifthAvenueRes…
Hmmm, Good point Mark and so true, but if I hadn't had the dial done custom, What would your opinion be if it had the original dial? If I hadn't told you all about the dial, who'd be the wiser? As it stands popular opinion seems to make it a "Non -Conforming - Unknown".
Well unknown from me unless there's some type of "tentative" catagory, as it would most likely be under the old system w/ crystal specs for more than one example.
The redial issue is not considered it my last sentence, and resulting possibility of non-conforming ....and good points Mark and Shawn. If we had not been told it was a redial not done exactly like the dial that came in the watch, and without an ad to see what original dial looked like, we may handle differently.
