    This Bulova Type A-11 belonged to my wife's grandfather (Sam) during WWII. The watch was issued to him in December 1943, when he entered the Army as an infantry soldier. He saw is 2nd son (my father-in-law) born just days before he left for Europe. Sam fought mostly in Italy between 1944 and 1945. In September 1945 he was on a boat headed for Japan when they received word that Japan had surrendered. Sam returned to New York, NY on 1945 and finished the remainder of his service as an MP.

    I've had this one for several years, but haven't worn it. It has always run well, but the date wasn't operating. Plastic date ring. Common problem with the Omega 1250 (ESA 9162) tuning fork models. I had made a few attempts in the past to find a replacement ring, to have repeatedly met with the same result! Not available. Recently, I was surfing eBay, and lo and behold, a dealer in a Mannheim, Germany, was listing a NOS date ring for sale. I bought it, and this is the result. The watch is on a buffalo hide strap. So today I will wear this one, and my long term tester, my1989 Rolex Date-Just which I serviced in November, 2016. As of today, it is 19 seconds fast since November. It dropped back 3 seconds at the change to MDT in March.
