Watch Analog watch Clock Watch accessory Font

Found this 1972 Bellmatic this weekend at the estate of a former NASA executive. Came on its original Seiko bracelet which doesn’t fit my wrist. Running a bit slow. Alarm works properly. I think it’s in nice condition. What do you think? I like it. I put a vintage JB Champion Band on it which fits my wrist and is comfortable. I’ll keep the original bracelet with the watch.

Very nice! I found a pretty rare Bell-Matic at a flea market a few years ago. It also runs slow....I'd love to get it back on my wrist.

Not to show off ....but here's my 1968, 4006-7029, 21 jewels. I got it at a flea market a few years ago.

Show off!!;)

That is a fantastic looking charcoal dial 21J 7029, original Stelux coffin link bracelet and all!, would love a 21J (either a 7019 or 7029 or both! ;) In my collection. I was very tempted by two examples that came up earlier in the year on eBay [Link]


and [Link]



Also have been looking at this nearly every day since it came up in March!



Price just isn't right and it doesn't have the correct two tone gold bracelet that I really think sets off the watch 🙂

That’s a beautiful white dial. My Bell is one of my most accurate watches, and I don’t know if it has ever been serviced. Mine was also an estate sale find for under $100.
