Additional Information

I bought this watch for next to nothing just because it had a nice seventies look about it, the only problem with it was the crystal was about as badly scratched as I’ve ever seen, this wasn’t improved when I clumsily dropped it and it smashed! Obviously I want to replace it if it’s possible but I’ve struggled to identify this watch, any ideas?

Is the crown at the 3 or 4 position?

Can't find any advert reference, but certainly part of the 'Bulova Quartz' model line.

Hi Richie - it's possible to find a replacement crystal by removing the back cover and checking if there's a case reference number stamped on the inside. You might have to have a watchmaker open it for you.

For identification I suggest 1978 Bulova Quartz
