Bulova Sea King Incoming!

Just finished this purchase on the swamp and this should be a great little fixer upper! Everything looked to be in excellent condition but the listing had the watch in status: non functional. As I was preparing my post, I was perusing the seller's photos and noticed that one of the movement holders was not in place (see photo 3). Then one of the other photos made me stop and look closer. Wedged between the barrel and the movement ring is a screw (picture 4 and inset)- which is most likely what is preventing the movement from running. Anyhow, we'll see in a couple weeks when it arrives from California. Looks to be a good sized watch at about 40mm!
