Re: American Watch Companies

I think Shinola watches from Detroit could be included.

Re: ID help women's bulova

It appears that the watch is a 1948 Bulova Loma. The '48' can be barely seen near the ratchet and crown wheels.

Re: What model is this?

Re: What model is this?

It has a case similar to the 1927 Bulova Spartan, but has "waterproof" on the dial. To the best if my knowledge, the Watertite didn't appear until 1929-30, and has a completely different case design.

Re: Quartz Conversion for a '58 Alice

Well, it appears US Time made both the 21 and 22 through 1959, but only the Petite and character watches had the 21. In 1960, the cases were revised (the case backs were made 0.5 mm smaller) and fitted with the 22. The date codes on both watches I worked on were from '58 and '59, both made in Little...

Quartz Conversion for a '58 Alice

After failed attempts to obtain decent amplitude on the original Model 21, I decided to do a quartz conversion. Though it meant the watches were not going to be 100% original, I wanted this and a similar '59 to be reliable and accurate for our 'grand' nieces. The movement choice was a Miyota 2026 so...

Re: Timex Super Thin - AKA Wafer Thin

The back of the case is in AMAZING condition. These are almost always pitted, corroded or very worn, but this appears like new. It is one of simple elegance, taking syltyling cues from Longines. Very nice!
