Bulova Aerojet Manual-Wind No-Date circa 1966 (Steel)


Brand: Bulova

Model: Aerojet (manual-winding/no-date model); Swiss Made; M6 date code = 1966

Case: Solid stainless steel "waterproof" case with two-piece screw-down back is approximately 35mm excluding the original unsigned winding crown

Strap: Vintage 11/16" (~18mm) black Caravelle strap with stainless steel tang buckle

Movement: Bulova cal. 11 ALC manual-winding movement (17 jewels) with center sweeping-seconds and no date; 18,000 BPH; Swiss Made

Features: Stunning original creamy silver sunburst dial with applied "BULOVA" logo and beveled/polished hour markers; original Tritium hands with beautiful yellow patina; original center sweeping-seconds hand; unpolished 35mm stainless steel "waterproof" case with factory Bulova domed acrylic crystal and vintage Caravelle band; clean manual-winding/no-date Aerojet model

Condition: Fantastic original condition overall with minor honest wear consistent with age and use; solid stainless steel case is razor sharp and appears to be completely unpolished with the original finishes in tact; crisp two-piece screw-down caseback remains clearly legible; beautiful original silver sunburst dial has aged to a light cream color with all Tritium lume plots present and aged to an attractive yellow hue; original Tritium hands with matching yellow patina; new old stock factory Bulova domed acrylic crystal

Other: Bulova produced several iterations of the Aerojet throughout the 1960s with this clean and simple no-date model being our favorite (and the most desirable). This particular example features a gorgeous creamy silver sunburst dial with amazing yellow lume plots and matching Tritium hands. The slim 35mm unpolished case with manual-winding movement slides nicely under a cuff and it can be dressed up or down. It is fairly difficult to find any Aerojet in nice original condition, let alone a 35mm stainless steel Aerojet without a date in the condition we are offering for sale here. It's just such a great watch for the money!
