Bulova Wrist Alarm cal. 11 AERC circa 1968


Brand: Bulova

Model: Wrist Alarm cal. 11 AERC; Swiss Made; M8 date code = 1968

Case: Solid stainless steel case with two-piece screw-down back is approximately 34mm excluding the dual matching original Bulova signed crowns

Strap: Vintage new old stock (NOS) 11/16" Bulova black genuine saddle leather strap with original unsigned stainless steel tang buckle

Movement: Bulova cal. 11 AERC manual-winding movement with functioning alarm (17 jewels); Swiss Made; M8 date code = 1968

Features: Stunning original dial with all Tritium lume plots in tact; matching original Tritium handset with nice yellow patina; functioning alarm with blued-steel "serpent" alarm indicator hand; dual original crowns (top crown winds and sets the watch and bottom crown sets and engages the alarm); rare vintage Bulova strap; solid stainless steel case

Condition: Nearly new old stock (NOS) original condition overall with only the lightest signs of wear from handling and storage; solid stainless steel case is razor sharp and appears to be completely unpolished with all original edges and bevels; caseback is super sharp and legible (rare to see on these); near-perfect original Tritium dial and handset with matching yellow patina; movement appears to be completely untouched (we may have been the first to open the back)

Other: You're not a true "WIS" until you have a vintage mechanical alarm watch waking you up. While LeCoultre and Vulcain get all the praise, Bulova Wrist Alarm models fly quietly under the radar. In fact, we actually prefer a good Bulova Wrist Alarm over a Vulcain Cricket - Just look at the squiggly blued-steel alarm hand! Fortunately for you, this is one of the best examples of a Bulova Wrist Alarm that we've ever seen or had the privilege of offering. Short of literally being new old stock, it doesn't get any better than this...
