Movement: Bulova cal. 11 AERC manual-winding movement (17 jewels) with functioning mechanical alarm; Swiss Made

Features: Stunning original dial with attractive patina and all lume plots in tact; original luminous hands; original blued-steel center sweeping-seconds hand and red-arrow alarm indicator hand; dual original signed crowns (top crown winds and sets the watch and bottom crown sets and engages the alarm); solid stainless steel case with domed acrylic crystal

Condition: Fantastic original condition overall with minor honest wear consistent with age and light use; sharp solid stainless steel case appears to be completely unpolished; crisp caseback is defined and clearly legible; attractive original dial with nice patina and all lume plots in tact; original hands with all luminous material in tact; a few very minor superficial scratches on the domed acrylic crystal

Other: You're not a true "WIS" until you have a vintage mechanical alarm watch waking you up in the morning. While LeCoultre and Vulcain get all the praise, Bulova Wrist Alarm models fly quietly under the radar - Just look at the cool blued-steel red-arrow alarm hand on this rare early execution circa 1958! A simple turn of the bottom crown sets the alarm hand and pulling it out engages the alarm to sound at that time. The dial on this gorgeous original example has aged gracefully, making it a one-of-a-kind piece. The solid stainless steel case and retro mesh bracelet make it a versatile watch that can be worn in many different situations.
