    Hi all!
    I have a weak spot for vintage "hummers", and have Longines, Certina, IWC, Omega and a few others in my collection.
    When talking about these you have to mention Bulova including the history behind these tuning fork movements. Its all fascinating to me :)
    I got my first Bulova a couple of months and have fallen in love with it since.
    This is a all original Railroad Approved from 1966 with the 214 movement.

    Are there anyone else who want to share their early Bulova`s? :)

    The "dress" railroad is definitely one of the best looking Accutrons. A lot of the later Swiss made Accutrons were the best designed models

    all black Swiss Astro, the Swiss Spaceviews, the dress railroad. Great watches.

    Nice Watch, Bulova have made some great watches, they had their own Moon Watch on Apollo 15 and better still Roger Moore the Saint wore a Rolled Gold Bulova Regatta 23 for most of the run of the Saint.:)

    Yep, I kinda like the reissue even if the quality isnt the same as in many of their vintage models.

    Nice watch!
    Ive been looking for a Space view on and off this last year myself. They seldom come up for sale in Scandinavia (Im from Norway) and buying one from ebay would a big gamble for me. I know just enough too get fooled by franken watches :)

    Thanks! :)
