    Sorry, board rules don't let us provide values. I'll check and see if I have any info on the Westbury brand. Incabloc is a shockproofing system that was introduced about 1935 or 1940, so it was produced sometime after that.

    Regards,
    Mike

    Cindy,

    If I recall correctly, the Westbury brand was marketed by Bulova for a number of years as a second, economy line.

    It was "Westfield" that was the second line Bulova.

    Cindy,

    Julian is correct. It WAS Westfield that I was thinking of. Open mouth, insert foot!

    Cindy sent several pictures of her Westbury. Here's one:

    I was not able to find a listing for Westbury in Pritchard's "Swiss Timepiece Makers 1775-1975", but I've seen other Swiss names that weren't in there either. My guess is this watch was made in the 60's or early 70's. Other opinions?

    Regards,
    Mike
