Bulova Dress 1965

 

How nice is this?  In 1965 the features that where desirable in a watch where, sweep hand, date and automatic wind.  This watch has none of those features and that’s why it’s so sleek.  All of  those features add to the thickness of the movement.

Add to that a texured dial with sub second, raised hour markers, the superbly finished 11AL movement and you have a beautiful watch.

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.
