I am a newbie to the forum but have been around Bulovas awhile. I am more of a old school accutron collector but have a couple newer Bulovas also.    I figure one pic will cover my Accutron

I've gone from none to three in the last few months. 1970 vintage hummer bought from SBryantgb of this parish   Accutron Snorkel   Accutron Surveyor  

I recently acquired this 1961 14kt White Gold Accutron Alpha from a friend of mine. He had purchased a small lot of unsold accutrons from an older shop owner and in our conversations, this watch came

Amazingly, The shop that originally sold it is still trading!! I may take it back as it needs calibrating to work with modern cells!!:tongue:

It's a shame the photobucket fiasco has ruined this and many other threads on here...

I completely agree, they've effectively pulled the plug on a lot of the internet. I had an account for over ten years and did have a paid account at one point. It was nowhere near what they expect people to pay now. Account closed!

Here's a few more of my Bulovas.

Now that's better!  thanks Davey. :thumbsup:  I have my eyes on your fourth watch ( so long as it's 42 Ø or bigger)

The Precisionist is easily my biggest/ heaviest  watch but strangely disappears within minutes of strapping it on. Very wearable.

No problem mate, watch number 4 is the UHF Military, model number 96B230, which has proved to be pretty popular around here.  It's actually quite small, at just over 40mm excluding crown, but it wears beautifully on the wrist. Most of my watches are at least 5mm bigger, but this one is a 100% definite keeper and I wear it a lot, which tells you something about it.

Thanks for the info Davey, :thumbsup:  Yes that's a tad smaller than I prefer, will have to get into a B&M to try it on for size.

I'd be pulling the trigger on the Moonwatch in SC if I hadn't already committed my current funds to two other watches. Doh!!!!

It's one of the smallest in my collection, but you should definitely try one on rather than focus only on the size, because it looks great on the wrist.  My wrist is a fairly chunky 7.5", and it looks like this when worn:

I hope that helps anyway :thumbsup:

Thanks again Davey. :thumbsup:

Watching a few  youtube  vids I saw it stated at 42Ø, as it's mostly watch face it will do. That second hand sweep looks even smoother than the Precisionist

although I know it cant be. A proper B&M is at least a 60 mile jaunt for me so..

 

£99.99 on amazon, trigger pulled! :laugh:

Nice one mate, and it's an absolute bargain at that price, well done :thumbsup:

In the unlikely event you don't like it, I think Amazon are pretty good with their returns policy, so you could send it back if you don't like it.
