A gamble on a bulova accutron

on Sat Dec 10 2016, 09:48
Message reputation : 100% (1 vote)
So a watch was described as a bulova without a hum it was put into a draw working and taken out not working , also the guy that owned it could not be bother to investigate what was wrong

So after a quick message I purchased the non hummer and it arrived yesterday , I took of the back to expose the bulova 2180 movement and it was a clean as a whistle no battery leaks or any sign as previous tampering ,

So next stage a new battery I put one in and the hum starting it's humming away like a little dream , what can I say apart from I am lucky

Glad it worked out well.

An occasional good buy with some added luck is always a bit of a boost with watches. Very Happy
