    Does this Bulova A-11 look authentic?

    As far as I know, the Bulova A-11 was used by the US Navy, USAAF and the British RAF. Some researchers believe that the lumed version was issued only to the US Navy. The domed crown on this one appears to be incorrect and the strap is certainly not like the original. Bulova movements hold up...

    Tiffany PW case housing a Hamilton 916 - how likely is that?

    How likely is it that a Tiffany 18K PW case and Tiffany dial are a good original match with a Hamilton 916 movement, c1926? I have such a combination, with engraving dated 1927 and the movement c1926. I've searched around the Internet for evidence of a Tiffany case housing a Hamilton movement...

    newbie needing help

    Certainly it's "worth fixing" but you are the only one who can really judge if it's worth it. Some would get it fixed just for the pleasure of getting it going; others would spend money on repairs if they think the resulting value of the watch is worth it in market terms.

    newbie needing help

    Looks like a nice generic Swiss watch to me, Buzz. I doubt you will get more accurate information about the maker unless you post macro pics of the movement ... and then it may be impossible to identify. Did your watchmaker define "hosed"? There are many things that can happen to a balance...

    Odd 1942 Bulova w/ pushbutton crown

    Without discussing specific value, you got an excellent bargain. It should not be too hard to find another sweep second hand. Fixing the missing stem might be a more difficult task. Glyn You can discuss values on Global Horology
