Additional Information

I found this brand new watch and I was hoping I could get some information about it. I didn't want to open it or take the stickers off. I would like to have it professionally serviced- do you have any Bulova expert recommendations?

Thank you for posting this beauty.   I found a match in the 1969 Linebook BAWD0172 which confirms the orignal bracelet.   Can you check the back and confirm if this has an M7 or an M9 date code.  I suspect this is a later model.

Thank you for the information! It has the M7 date code, so 1967. I found 5 other brand new Bulovas, never worn with boxes as well- but this one certainly is the highlight.

Very nice watch, note the sticker has the reference number - 11404 - 196X Bulova Snorkel K

Snorkel "K".

Display box is not era appropriate. Possibly re-boxed, since this style of box did not come out until early-mid 70s. Likely came with the octagonal box or the blue clamshell type. Outer box would have a model tag.

Since this is how it came, direct from the jewelers storage, it is hard to believe it is not era appropriate. This is how it would have been displayed and sold in their store.

What a great find! Many collectors would love to have such a fine example, myself included.

Thank you, it truly is one of a kind.

I would entertain selling the watch- honestly because it's brand new I wouldn't want to wear it, so it would just sit on my shelf. I would rather it go to someone who would enjoy it.

As for price, I am thinking $4000. Or if you can find me a buyer I'll give you 5% commission (worth a shot🤷‍♂️).

I appreciate all the help!
