• Upcoming updates
    Over the next couple of weeks we will be performing software updates on the forum. These will be completed in small steps as we upgrade individual software addons. You might occasionally see a maintenance message that will last a few minutes at most.

    If we anticipate an update will take more than a few minutes, we'll put up a notice with estimated time.

    Thank you!

Hello, My first post here.
I became interested in manual and automatic watches on a trip to China about 2 years ago. The availability of cheap knock-off watches (and expensive, impressive knockoff watches) was incredible. But I was drawn instead to the vintage Sea Gulls since they made a statement to me about how a quality business is affected by changing social leadership. I have been drawn deeper and deeper into watches ever since. My first purchase was a '72 Bulova SeaKing original, in both boxes, still tied down and the band looked like it had never been un-tied from the velvet bed. It was original Naugahyde "Leather" and since Nauga are a protected species now, I knew the watch had to be valuable. :) It has a black dial with red and gold minute markers and looks incredibly sharp. I found a local watch repair shop and the owner cleaned and oiled the movement. What a find. I have all the paperwork from where it was purchased in '72 at a local jewelry store. I wear it at least once a week since it matches the logo of my business's polo so well. I've since bought a Steinhart Ocean 39 gmt and recently bought a 1944 Gruen 420ss in a TK Corp linen case. I guess I'm officially hooked.
New '72 Bulova
