Rare Vintage 1970's Bulova Sea King GL Manual Wind Date Gold Plated Swiss Watch Cal. 11AOCD
This is a stunning grey dialed with red indices Bulova Sea King GL is awesome looking. Honestly, I didn't want to stop taking photos and it looks so much nicer in person. This is a manual wind, very reliable 17 jewel movement. Most of the mechanical movements from the 70's, the height of the quartz crisis, were high quality well finished movements. They needed to compete with the time-keeping capabilities of quartz as closely as they could. But that's not the real reason this watch is a special one, it's the model and dial combo. Very rarely seen in grey and red, as well as the model overall. Please notice that this has been work and has some superficial scratches on the case and original crystal; neither are noticeable or stand out. The crown and strap & buckle are also original and both in excellent shape. This super clean Bulova in these dial and case colors are almost surreal; whomever thought of it was a great designer. You can tell by the many service marks that the owner took very good care of this watch and had it serviced as one should frequently. Just freshly serviced and keeping good time, this watch would make a perfect companion to a collection or to wear. Thank you for looking.
