I thought it about time we started a forum where we can post pictures of members meeting. A few years back I was delighted to hear that a couple of members met to share a beer and a yarn about their Bulova watch addiction, ah I mean collection. Prior to these members were total strangers and it's a wonderful feeling to know that this site has made some lasting marriages yet (plenty of divorces maybe..joking) but it's only a matter of time before His Excellency meets and marrys Her Excellency.

Several times a week we get inquiries as to how much someones vintage Bulova watch is worth.  Rather than explain this over and over, I thought maybe we'd have one post we could possibly make a sticky for anyone inquiring.

The worth of your vintage Bulova or Accutron watch is very subjective.  There are no hard and fast rules that this one is worth X amount.  They are worth what someone is willing to pay for that specific watch.

I have an older 'vintage' Hadley expansion band.  these are put together 'differently' than the current straight line U clip expansion bands. The Vintage ones are more SCISSOR LIKE Link to link, expansion).  For the life of me, I cannot figure out how to remove links to size the band.  what's the trick??  I cannot locate any online articles or video's on how this is accomplished. 

thanks for your assistance


Correct Band For An Astronaut Type 'O'

Hello all, I am a new member to the mybulova group, but have been an avid lover of Bulova watches since I was (much) younger.  I've collected a few Accutrons over the past 6 years and recently began "reacquainting" myself with them in hopes of resurrecting them.  Recently, I acquired an Astronaut Type "O" with the day/night bezel and enhanced silver dial.  Sadly, the watch came without a watch band.  I would like to find one that is correct for the watch, so I have a question for the knowledgeable folks on this forum.

Hi all,

I friend of mine offered me this 1969 watch. 

I was unable to find online many resources regarding this model and I am having a problem understanding if all the parts are original and coeval

To me, all seems ok, even if I normally see the second hand in red.

I would like some expert advice ;-)

Jet Star Collection

Hello everyone,

My name is Mike and I am on a mission to collect all 10 Jet Star Models, and I am very close to completing the collection.  My question is... Does anyone here, have any knowledge of any other collector that has another complete Jet Star collection?   I have to imagine I am not the only collector to obtain all 10pcs, but I would like to know for sure.  I have reached out to several fellow Bulova collectors and nobody has knowledge of this being done before.  Any info or leads you may have would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you,


Counterfeit Bulova?

Hello everyone! Received a recent eBay purchase and it seems to be a mish-mash of watch parts. The dial says Bulova, however it does not say Swiss and seems to be in a paint color/style I have not seen before. Looking to see if Bulova dials always say Swiss on them. Also looking to see if they used this metallic copper paint on the dials. Close up pics of numerals look like thick paint.
