This session presents five examples from my oddball Bulova collection. They originate from between the late 1950s and 1963, offer medium to high-grade mechanical movements and have cases that are either rolled gold or gold filled. The only exception is the criss-cross lug model (far left model) which is solid 14K. The most collectible of the four is probably the triangular case model (second position), but I have a personal soft spot for the basket weave case top and atomic spoke dial model (third from left).
Looking back, it would seem there was a competition between Hamilton, Bulova and Elgin as to who could pen the funkiest case design.
Above is one of my all-time favorites. Below is a photo of the movement from the same model, courtesy of the web.
