Bulova 23 jewel selfwinding: c702016

Recommended Posts


I have a Bulova 23 Jewel self-winding C702016 watch.   

I am brand new to watch repairs/making.   I would like to clean the face of this watch.   I am curious if this bezel is removed using a Bezel removing tool.  I have attempted but if it does, it certainly does not come off easily.   

It looks like this one:


Advice would be appreciated.

Hi Michael, I too am new to watch repair / restoration, but I have a Bulova '23', not the exact same model but close enough, and it looks to me that it is a case of removing the crown and winding stem to drop everything out the back so to speak.

It sounds daunting but it is not too difficult a job and there are plenty of tutorials on youtube. Maybe practice with a dead watch first though.

Please do not take my words as gospel as , like I mentioned I am a beginner too, and I am sure that there are wiser heads out there who could give you better advice.

Good luck …. Steve
