Look at that hand go!

The invisible hands of the market!

Marvel at the textures, while conversely marveling at the smoothness of the second hand!

As a kid I remember my father always liking Bulova - in fact when they bought me my first watch it was a Bulova (I still have that somewhere - I shall dig it out and add to this list soon). His love of watches developed to many years of collecting a range of watches which I am now cataloguing and providing to this Forum under the various brands. So here are his Bulova's

72398d5d-92fc-4653-8918-9ce75030b451_zps

One for the ladies

The classic

One I really do like the look of 

aa694e01-df82-4aed-b8f4-ae17701f8147_zps

Love this one - often worn out for an evening

And finally (for now) my more recent personal acquisition (well, a year or 2 back)

b497db8f-4f3b-48dc-94fd-7c49f7daef2d_zps

2 more to come - my original as a kid, and one more where I just discovered the photo was corrupted (other than just poor like the others!)

Hope you enjoyed

Nick

I've got 6 in my collection, and I'll try to list them in order of preference (not an easy thing to do...);

Number one is still this wonderful Precisionist, with it's exquisite carbon fibre detailing, an absolutely stunning watch in the flesh:

DSCF2143_zpsdbjhv1n8.jpg

Closely followed at number 2 by the latest acquisition, which needs no introduction (except to say, everyone is calling it the Davey P Precisionist, of course :laughing2dw:):

20161128_090027_zpslwvcsyer.jpg

Number 3 is the mighty Sea King UHF, which is an absolute beast of a diver:

20161118_183801_zps89p18wqj.jpg

Number 4 is the small but perfectly formed Military UHF:

20160718_083738_zpsgr2ajgat.jpg

Number 5 is this extraordinary curved Precisionist:

2014-07-31115250_zps5a93b2b5.jpg

And bringing up the rear at number 6 is this lovely diver, which is the only one that hasn't got a Precisionist or UHF movement inside (hence the last place :biggrin:):

20160620_143340_zpsrkgwvfkx.jpg

Regardless of their position in the list, it's safe to say these are all keepers :thumbsup:

Ok, as promised here are my final 2 Bulova's

This was the one where the photo didn't come out properly - lovely looking Accutron

eac4f545-afba-4e24-8c04-9945bb46e4c1_zps

And my very first proper watch - probably when I was about 13? (so it is about 50 years old and started ticking as soon as I picked it up! Doesn't quite fit as well now :biggrin:)

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:

The second is this fancy lugged one, I think from memory it was made in my birthyear (1958) I bought it off a watch forum, Think it was TZ, It was only £20 posted if memory serves (T'was a few years ago though and my cabbage aint what it used to be!!) :whistle:

Bought a couple of these beauties (one new, one used). Definite favourites !

Then I bought this one but I just didn't bond with it, so back it went. @Davey P, if you think this is small, you're madder than I thought you were !:laugh:

I didn't notice this part of the forum so I'm now joining the Bulova owners club. I have a 3 year old Precisionist on rubber, would like a Champlain and a SeaKing too.

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.
