It is a well-documented fact that in the mid 20th century, men’s watches were often re-cased. At some times, this was due to a problem with the original case. At other times, it had to do with changing styles and fashions. In the case of this case, it may have had to do with the growing popularity of “waterproof” or “water-protected” cases. We will never know exactly what prompted the owner of this watch to have it re-cased, but that is what he did.
The result is a curiosity for collectors. A Bulova watch in a TK case, all of which is more than fifty years old, and has probably been together since Eisenhower was in the White House.
This Bulova Watch boasts an Art Deco inspired design, 17 Jewels Swiss made movement, and a beaded link and scissor expansion vintage Topps watch band.
