1940 BULOVA USA 'Captain' Gents Dress Vintage Watch
empressissi™ is pleased to offer this elegant and all original dress watch for men from the early 40s by the fine maker BULOVA, known as the 'Captain' model. It is ready to wear, gift or add to your collection.
The watch houses a strong early 7AP Bulova caliber, running on 17 jewels with sub seconds and it is an early example of the barrel shaped movement that led Bulova dress watches for the next 10+ years ahead.

The dial is a factory original, lightly aged pearl tone with raised gold plated numerals and an original set of hands.
This collectible BULOVA watch measures 21mm side to side (excluding crown) and 39mm from top lug to bottom lug and is modest in size even for a vintage watch.
Attached to this watch is its original JB USA 10K gold filled bracelet with an adjustable clasp in overall very good condition for its age. Will fit a wrist of 180-190mm comfortably.
