I realized I hadn't worn an Accutron in a while, so I put a battery in a 214 with gold crosshair dial:

I don't wear this one often because I'm trying not to wear out the original band and buckle:

Beautiful Gruen, and that original strap on the Accutron really dresses that one up! Nice.
Today, a Bulova that I have yet to identify.

I just identified this as a 1951 Bulova Westover. It has its original Kreisler bracelet.

That is one wild case, particularly from the side, with the fan of segments!

This watch is very cool! I love seeing what everyone wears. Do you have to have someone pop your neck back into place after wearing it?
