This has got to be one of my "best buys" of 2010 so I thought I'd share it with everyone!!!!

I bought this watch from the Grandson of the original owner who left it to him. The Grandfathers brother bought it new in South Australia in the 70's as a present for his brother and sent it over to the Uk. I have the original addressed packaging the watch was sent over in from the seventies!

For some reason Grandad didn't wear it, maybe he didn't like it or maybe for sentimental reasons friends.gif he thought he would only wear it on special occasions and there were not any/many!

I already own a few Bullheads but this is by far the best one I've found!

Definitley a thing of beauty.

Love the chocolate dial, oh so '70's but all that has come full circle so it looks very "now" now!

Thanks for sharing it with us

You are welcome! I think 70's fashion could be making a comeback, now where did I put those flared trousers!!!!!!!!!!!!

Interesting watches and this certainly looks in fantastic condition but I always imagine that the case depth might be too much for my wrists.

They are a "lump" for sure and do sit high but I do enjoy wearing my other Bullheads and I don't have big wrists. Gives me that 70's feel wink.gif

Thanks for all the great comments about the watch guys! When I get a little more time and some good light I'll have a go at taking a couple more shots and put them on. I must admit that photography is a mystery to me and I take my hat off to those who have mastered the arthi.gif

Mechanical Alarm........As for the language displayed on the day wheel of the watch I think I'm right in saying it's "Kanji", japanesesmartass.gif , the other language on the wheel is english.

This is the Kanji symbol for Sunday in the day window, funny how it looks like an 8 and there being only 7 days in the weekblink.gif
