Bulova Aerojet Automatic (Stainless Steel) circa 1966


Brand: Bulova

Model: Aerojet Automatic (Rare 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

Bracelet/Strap: Vintage new old stock 11/16" (~18mm) Caravelle smooth black leather strap with stainless steel tang buckle; also includes what we believe to be the original Kreisler stainless steel expansion bracelet (RARE)

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

Features: Stunning original 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 original domed acrylic crystal; original Kreisler bracelet

Condition: Mint original condition overall with only minor honest wear consistent with age and very light use; solid stainless steel case is razor sharp and completely unpolished with the original finishes in tact; crisp two-piece screw-down caseback remains clearly legible; incredible original silver sunburst dial has aged to a cream color with all Tritium lume plots in tact and aged to a very attractive yellow hue; original Tritium hands with matching yellow patina; clean original domed acrylic crystal

Other: Bulova produced several iterations of the Aerojet with the 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. It is very difficult to find any Aerojet in nice condition, let alone a 35mm stainless steel Aerojet without a date in collector-grade condition as seen here. This is truly one of the best examples that we've ever come across... With an unpolished case that slides nicely under a cuff and two band options, it can be dressed up or down.
