Bulova Automatic 1969

Bulova 1969 boxed,  

One of the great watchmakers, Bulova, produced this  excellent example of the transitional style from the 60’s to the 70’s in 1969. Bulky case but still stylish, square hands but not blockish and, revolutionary, blue dial.  The 11ANACD movement (typical Bulova  complicated caliber number) is very aesthetic with highly polished screws and a B carved out of the rotor. 11AN is the base caliber, the next A is for automatic, the C is for centre second and D is for date. This is a nice practical watch, water resistant, robust, automatic with sweep hand and date. And, in 1969, fashionable in style.

About robswatches

I’m a horoligical “petrol head”! I love classical mechanical watches, not because they tell me the time, I can get the time from cheap quartz watches, my computer, phone, microwave or just about anywhere. I’m interested in the movements of watches, the aesthetics of case design and their construction, the history and the simple thrill of watching tiny, beautifully finished wheels, pinions and other parts turning and oscillating and marvelling at the craftsmanship that created it.
