Other: Here at watchsteez.com, we are huge fans of vintage Bulova. Fortunately for collectors, the brand is still undervalued. This rare Surf King "FW" variant is a perfect example of why we love the brand - You can get a super cool model with a great dial in mint condition with a solid stainless steel case powered by a quality Swiss movement for under $500. As an added bonus, the movement has already been completely overhauled by our watchmaker! The Bulova Surf King is classic, minimal, and can double as a black-tie watch or casual weekend wearer. Just check out the art-deco "12" on the glossy mirror dial with perfect golden yellow lume. The entire watch just glistens out in the sun.
