I am selling my second Bulova 7605 "Autavia style".
You are getting a watch that is in fact an Heuer Autavia of the seventies but with the Bulova name.
Same movement, 1163V case, same bezel, same plexi, etc....
That watch is powered by a caliber 15 with Bulova name on the bridge.
Fully serviced, comes with a 12 month guarantee on the movement.
Add up the value of an 1163V case, 1163 bezel, caliber 15 movement, 1163 original plexi, case-back, 1163 pushers,...
Interesting to note is that you get the same hands as on a Skipper 15640 ( except for the regatta hand ).
So there is a lot of value in parts here. Not saying that I am looking for someone to brake up this magnificent watch of course.
The watch has that great military style look you will also find on the ref. 73663 and 73463 military Autavia's.
These also have those long beige lume markers. Heuer just never combined this military style with cal.15 movement.
But maybe they should have. :-)
Please ask for more pictures if genuinely interested. Just made this quick Iphone picture. The watch looks way better in real.
Price: 2800 euros ( insured shipping included and also the fostwatches strap from the picture )
Payment: Bank transfer or PP ( +4% )
