Ask general questions about Bulova watches. Please do not ask for model identification. Add your watch to the website for that.

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.

Original dial 1954 Reed

Recently I bought a 1954 Reed for restoration. I’m doubting the originality of the dial (and the crown). The “B” in Bulova is small and “Selfwinding” is missing. Everything else is exactly as it should be. Any comments? Can it be original? Should I leave it as it is, or have it restored?

Accutron Astronaut Lume

Greetings all first post here.  I am in the process of selling my 1968 Accurtron Astronaut Black Swiss and I am being asked if the markers have been relumed.  They appear to have a slight green tinge under macro and do not appear as aged as the hand/symbol lume.  Any input would be appreciated as I do not want to provide incorrect information to the buyers I am currently talking with.  Thanks!


Bulova 11AERC (Alarm watch)

I started working on a Bulova 11AERC movement, took lots of pictures while disassembling.
But I was wondering if there is any documentation about this movement?
Maybe some exploded views or details on how the compilation works?

I've searched in the archives but nothing came up, anyone had more luck then me?

Regards and take care
