    I have a watch, not in good shape as I prefer to buy the underdogs and see if I can make them work again. I have been collecting since I lucked upon a 1957 solid gold Omega watch in a jar of watches I bought at a thrift/flea market in elberta Alabama 2 years ago, yes it worked and I have been searching for and have found some treasures ever since. Has anyone heard of this brand, Bolivia before? Again, it's in disrepair but it did still wind up and work until the hands detached in the case? I'm wondering if it's related to the Bulova brand? Thanks in advance. Tracy

    Welcome, Ms Smith, sounds like a Chinese knockoff that tries to sound like Bulova, kind of like old pocket watches signed Waldron instead of Waltham. If you can upload photos that would help immensely.

    Probably not needing to be a Chinese knockoff. The Swiss made millions of pin pallet watches with all sorts of names from Buler to Bulovia Not to mention Cimier and Citron and a whole lot of similar sounding names.
