Bulova Chronograph 'D' c.1971

0.00

In Bulova history, 1969 through 1973 was arguably when the company produced some of their most well-known designs — and it’s also when they marketed their most popular chronographs. This Chronograph ‘D’ is a unique model right in the middle of this stretch of production.

While all of the chronographs were wonderful quality pieces, this model is one of several that a quick glance makes rather unmistakable to “those in the know”. The slate gray and white contrast is flared up by the bright orange accents of the chrono second hand, minute counter subdial, and indicies. A 1970’s piece through-and-through with a robust Valjoux 7734-based motor gives you a great timepiece that has withstood the test of time quite fashionably!

[Note: This particular piece is tastefully inscribed “M. Nelson” on the caseback without obscuring any of the Bulova markings. As a collector who has always enjoyed aesthetically-pleasing original owner personalizations, I’ve found there are many others who appreciate the history that a watch brings along with it.]

[All vintage watches are expected to function as described. However, due to age and generally unknown service history (unless otherwise stated), these watches may not keep time as accurately as new or quartz (battery) watches. This is completely normal and does not indicate that there is a major problem. Like your automobile, all mechanical watches will likely need to be serviced at some point in time. Please keep this in mind, as there is no guarantee regarding when these vintage watches may need standard maintenance. Every watch sold by Buying On Time is done so with the expectation that it is not currently in need of service or repair, unless noted. We guarantee that all watches sold are accurately described and in the stated condition when they leave our hands.]
