My silver dial (looks champagne-colour now with the patina) 1955 Bulova 23 is finally back from a full servicing!

Image

In real life the uneven darker patina on the right side of the dial isn't that obvious.

Will post a few more pictures in the Vintage Gallery soon.

I haven't, since the watch went straight for a service the day after I received it!

I've posted more details and pics in the Vintage Gallery.

Got this in the post this morning, very impressed for the money. Strap is a bit hard but not the end of the world, and has a SS deployment clasp which is a bonus.

Crazy-Cut Bezel? Never heard that description before. :D

http://bbwatches.info/bulovagoldsteel.php

I found this site that sold the same watch a few years ago, with photos of the movement. I've now ordered a similar bracelet from ebay to replace the old Timex one I modified to fit it. Mine still has the original Bulova logo'd gold crown. All the scratches really show up in the photo more than real life. 34mm doesn't look too small actually.

Looks like one of the Harry Potter exhibits at Warner Brothers Tour near Watford.
