John had this one for sale and I had a half dead donor watch with the same movement.
It wasn't unwanted, he just has too many projects :)
After some cleaning, replacing the steppermotor with the missing gear for the good one from the donor the watch works again :) I also used the nicer looking backplate from the donor.

The number of the beast ;)


The partly disassembled Bulova and the donor Bulova below. You might be able to see the broken stepper motor still in the watch.

And the working movement :)


It's all about spares ;)

WOW! Nice! For some reason, I've been seeing a bunch of Oceanographers lately. What year is that one from? I've seen them marked Accutron, but I can't recall seeing any marked quartz like that. That is really SWEET!

Cheers!
Mike
