Bulova 'Waterproof' Time-Only ref. 2345 circa 1963


Brand: Bulova

Model: Time-Only ref. 2345; Swiss Made circa 1963 (M3 date code)

Case: Solid stainless steel "waterproof" case with screw-down back is approximately 32mm excluding the original Bulova signed crown

Strap: Vintage new old stock (NOS) period-correct 11/16" tapered leather crocodile-grain strap with polished stainless steel tang buckle

Movement: Bulova cal. 11 ALC manual-winding movement (17 jewels) with center sweeping-seconds hand; 18,000 BPH; Swiss Made

Features: Stunning original eggshell (off-white) dial with applied Bulova logo and large Arabic numerals; unpolished stainless steel "waterproof" case with screw-down back

Condition: Mint original condition overall with only minor wear from age and light use; sharp stainless steel case is unpolished; near-perfect original Tritium dial with nice yellow patina; original handset

Other: Usually quality and affordable don't belong in the same sentence, but Bulova is one big exception to that general rule. They made some incredible watches, particularly in the late 1950s through the early 1970s and are still relatively affordable today. This gorgeous time-only Bulova comes in a solid stainless steel case and can be dressed up or down. It's surprising how great it looks with just a white t-shirt and jeans and it can just as easily be worn with a suit and tie.
