Bulova self winding 1950's - noise when winding?

#1 Post by Winder » Thu Jul 06, 2017 10:08 am

I've just acquired a 1956 Bulova 23 jewel self-winding mens watch. I am NOT the least bit familiar with old self-winding watches. When this one is wound either by turning the crown or by light shaking in the hand it seems to wind fine - however, it is not at all quiet. It makes a tight metal-to-metal sound. Is that normal?
Any ideas would be very welcome.

Cold are the hands of time that creep along relentlessly, destroying slowly but without pity that which yesterday was young.
Alone our memories resist this disintegration and grow more lovely with the passing year
The Weinie King, 1942
