Here is one I bought about 12 years ago with intentions of selling it because it was so good looking and had a case that had been altered with fancy extended lugs. What I did know the movement is in need of help and we cannot find a movement like this for parts. Anyway my watchmaker has given up so Let me pass it along to someone who has the time and patients to tackle this task. I can get it to run a couple clicks but that is all. The second hand has fallen off a couple times so it needs to be tightened but movement has a good pinion. I am getting too old to keep these projects so I am selling them so when I go to the watch heaven my wife will not have to deal with them. Here is a attractive watch that I think will be worth the effort and time. The case measures 34.5 mm from side to side and 48 mm lug end to lug end so it is a good size. Selling this AS IS so your risk.

Ken Cooper is our best and only sales manager for the west coast and he finds time to research the actual, so he says, history of some of our listings but please remember when Ken was in the military he spent years in areas where loud exploding bombs may have left him a little shell shocked so here is what he says this is a true story.
LT Schuler (Sky) Seamless glanced at his great running Military Bulova watch and noticed the time was near 0200 hrs. If the enemy were going to attack his unit's well prepared defensive outpost it would be soon. The men were alert and ready but with a wind chill factor of 50 degrees below zero this winter evening LT Seamless knew weapons could freeze up, men would cry out in pain from the cutting wind even though they had good issue GI winter clothes on, but he knew his Bulova would keep on ticking regardless of the cold. Bugles suddenly started blaring, enemy artillery started probing their outpost, and "Sky" could hear the thousands of enemy troops moving towards him and his men. He called for illumination fire and soon saw the vast, never ending hordes of enemy soldiers heading toward the outpost. Yelling loudly, "Throw the book at them" the outpost responded with a large volume of fire. Glancing at his watch he knew it was now time to call DIVARTY to put a "ring of fire and steel" around his outpost. The artillery was causing huge breaks in the enemy lines and he heard his men cry out "were holding them." Another quick glance at his Bulova and he noted it would soon be dawn and he could bring even more "smoke" on the fleeing enemy soldiers. His counterpart asked him for the time and he replied, "Lt Putz in another half hour we will drive these troops back 40 miles." Dawn came suddenly and soon American tanks, more soldiers, aircraft, and more artillery pounded the retreating enemy. LT Seamless looked at his Bulova watch and smiled, "right on time and you didn't let me down." As the hostile troops fled American Generals down the line said this would be a turning point in the war as US soldiers had risen from their own bitter ashes and stopped the enemy in its tracks. As Retired Colonel Schuler Seamless looked back years later he smiled that wonderful smile of his and remembered the snow covering the vast amount of enemy soldiers that night and felt pride in his country, the military, his brave men and his noble Bulova watch. When the next large watch show visited his city he felt it was time to let a new owner have a great watch that would never let you down. After speaking with Mr. Girard Sensoli, an ex-GI, he sold the watch to Girard because of the fair price Girard would offer the watch on his website and the hopes the new owner of the Bulova would enjoy the watch as much as he had. Ask about Girard's lay away plan when purchasing this military vet.

Ken Cooper our best and outstanding west coast manager spends lots of time in the local pub and says he reads the internet to discover where some of my listings come from and here is one he says is not a spoof, I am not sure what do you think ? Girard
Russell Prize worked as a janitor in Cat City's largest and highest office building. Russell's wages were great and with them and his thrifty way of living he was able to purchase a gold Cyma timepiece which he wore everyday & saw to its service every 3 years. One late evening Russell had forgotten his Cyma watch at home and only remembered that while his working on the 55th floor of the tall office building. Russell was a good worker, but very curious when cleaning offices, and now while in the CEO's office of a large cat food company, Russell dropped a glass framed photo of the CEO smiling broadly and broke it in several places. Quickly thinking he got his tube of "super glue" from his janitors cart & soon had the glass frame fixed but he also had "super glue" all over both of his large hands. Heading for the rest room to clean his hands he noticed one of the large windows was still open. Shutting the window he was startled to notice he was stuck to the large glass pane. Trying to pull free he found that wouldn't work so he pushed hard against the window and to his amazement the window & himself "popped out" from the frame & began a plunge into open space. As he & the glass window plunged downward he thought the end was near but a gust of wind suddenly caused him to glide towards the large lake that boarded Cat City. Finding he could control the glass pane somewhat like a kite he relaxed & enjoyed the view as he soared high over the lake. Suddenly, the wind gusts stopped blowing & Russell plunged towards the lake at a rapid rate and struck the lake's surface with a big impact, however at the last moment Russell released a large blast of methane glass which slowed the impact into the lake. Russell was trapped under the glass & below the waterline. Struggling to turn over the glass pane Russell quickly exhausted his air and soon drowned. It was a baffled water patrol crew that discovered Russell's body & city officials quickly explained his death was due to an accidental drowning but did not address why he was stuck to a pane of glass. City officials did re-name the lake "Glass Lake." Again, somehow & in some way Girard obtained the Cyma watch & now offers it for sale at an attractive price.

Again Ken Cooper has spent many hours in the wine country searching the history of this watch so here is what he has to say about this Movado, Thank You Ken, great job.
Peter "The Piper" Pepper was restless upon completing his lengthy education and his very wealthy father, Graham Gus Pepper, presented him with this Movado "Series 800 Sub Sea" wristwatch and an open plane ticket to anywhere in the world. Days later Peter traveled to a very tiny country, that is almost unknown, located close to Tibet & Nepal. It didn't take him very long to fall deeply in love with the simple style of living and the rugged beauty of this obscure country. Quickly he learned to speak like a native, after all "The Piper" had an IQ of 160, and he established a small school for all the children in the village. As the earth turned many times Mr. Pepper gave his parents his jewelry and swell Movado watch when they made their only visit to try and talk "The Piper" into coming home. He told his father he wanted nothing from the famous Pepper estate (The family was big in Turnips) and upon their passing to please give their wealth to the common people where they resided. Years later his father attended a huge jewelry & watch show in Cat City and sold "The Piper's" items. This wonderful, hardly worn Movado was sold to a Mr. Girard Sensoli of Pinckney, MI. Before leaving the show Graham Pepper drank a couple of cups of a very relaxing herbal tea brewed by Girard. They discussed life, children, good diets, and watches. Girard has listed this Movado timepiece at a very attractive price. This is an investment for your future and a great timekeeper. Ask about placing this masterpiece of time keeping on Girard's very unique layaway plan and own a watch for the ages. Also ask Girard about his unique & very special herbal diet plan as he will be happy to share it with you and check the lay-away-plan at Girard's.

Mr. Ken Cooper out best and only west coast sales manager knows all when it comes from military items. He was a top of the line army Sergeant Major and fought many battles for our country so when he says it is true than who am I to doubt him.
Looking for a military watch with rich history........to include combat? This Bulova fills the bill ! It is suspected but no one is able to prove 100% that it was first issued to one of the original Daniel Boone Scouts ( an elite US Army unit/behind the lines fighters) and saw much action against a fierce and determined enemy. We then move forward and find that somehow, someway it found its way into the naval service and was present & worn by a US Navy Admiral as he launched attack after attack against the rival navy & sending their navy to bottom of the briny deep. In 1965 the watch was worn by a member of the US Marines as they landed in South Vietnam. Not too many years later it was worn by a member of the US Army's 23rd Infantry Regiment, 2d Infantry Division as they patrolled the "Hot" Korean DMZ & engaging in fierce hand to hand combat in the late 1960s/early 1970s. Many years later it was proudly worn by a Sergeant Major of the 18th Medical Command in Seoul, Korea as he "pushed paper" all day long. Leaving Korea in the middle part of the 1980s the Sergeant Major was told the watch was his to keep as the grand Bulova had done its duty & done it proudly. The Sergeant Major moved to Ft Lewis, WA where he served out his remaining time, until retirement with the famous 9th Infantry Division. He wore his military Bulova timepiece after retirement with jobs as a gun store supervisor, a clerk at Ft Lewis issuing ID cards, work with the postal service as a night supervisor, and finally into a comfortable retirement. In the middle of 2015 he sold this well maintained Bulova wrist watch to Girard's watches and set out on a world cruise on a sturdy but comfortable tramp steamer to see things and places that he never had gotten to see. Girard offers this Bulova at a great price and hopes you take advantage of his unique lay away plan.
