Good find while on vacation...

June 21, 2013 02:05AM
We went on vacation to the Seattle/Tacoma area last week, and I took every opportunity I could to visit antique shops and pawn shops in the area.

Near the end of my trip I found a pawn shop that had a bowl of watches advertised at $2 apiece.

I had to resist the urge to buy the eight or so mechanical watches in there, instead opting for the 'best' three.


Proof that watch collectors in the states have it much easier than we do here in Alaska, here's a 1957 Bulova I found in aforementioned bowl.

I haven't done a whole lot of research into it since Bulova put out a ton of watches at the time so I feel it will be a lot of work tracking down this particular design.

She works. Definitely worth the $2!


I've got a few other watches recently, and about two gallon bags that I need to go through, but I thought I should share this with everyone.
