Why We Love it

We admit it, we do tend to get carried away pontificating about vintage watches.  Whether it is the history of a particular piece or some oft-forgotten sidenote in the development of a particular case design or movement, there are numerous elements to vintage timepieces that make them so desirable.  On the other hand, much like women, sometimes all it takes to get us excited about a particular timepiece are some killer looks.

Case in point: This unusual and colorful Bulova Chronograph "C".

Dating from the early 1970s, this steel wristwatch is sized at an impressive 43mm, a substantial beast far larger than many of its contemporaries and brilliantly sized for the modern wrist. It features an uncommon and extremely colorful exotic dial with red, white, and blue elements which has earned it the nickname "Stars and Stripes" by collectors.  With warmly patinated oversized luminescent hour plots and red-tipped hands, there is a lot to look at.

Powered by a Valjoux 7736 manual-winding chronograph unit (as found in Heuer Autavias from the same era), this Bulova has the braun to back up the looks.  Paired up with a multi-colored nylon strap, it is the watch to wear when grilling up some burgers and brats on the 4th Of July - or whenever you want to wear a watch that will put a smile on your face from its sheer fun factor!
