1928 in the Box

#1 Post by Paleotime » Sun Feb 04, 2018 2:51 pm

Hi Everyone,

Here is my latest Bulova for my collection. I couldn't resist the box and the original strap with the matching buckle...

Running a very clean 17j 9AN with date stamps indicating 1927 (case number is 1928)...the clearest dust cover I have ever seen. Not running - but it seems to be an obstruction in the train or set-up oils...

Here is a detail of the buckle which matches the case. I have seldom seen these and I don't think I have ever seen one with the watch...

I am very excited. This was a great addition for my collection since the Bulova President is a model that I focus on.

That is a nice one. The matching buckle is way cool too.

Thanks Everyone,

Has anyone had experience with a strap of this age? It is still pretty soft - but is there a good treatment or preservative that someone has experience with? Thanks.

WOW, great find and a beauty too!👍 I can gladly recommend Fiebing's Saddle Soap paste. I use it on all my leather including fine leather. It cleans, preserves and lubricates to keep the leather soft to prevent brittleness.
