Its uncle Rod again, you know , the weird looking tall one.Just showing off a recent find from Americas favorite Fence, Ebay.This watch is TICKING AWAY NICELY BUT GAINS TIME SO NEEDS A LITTLE ATTENTION. Very good condition, few very light marks to case, could e...A SERVICE IS RECOMMENDED ON ALL MECHANICAL WATCHES SOLD AS SERVICE HISTORY IS UNKNOWN. Top quality electronic tuning fork movement (Cal 2181F) keeps great time. Up for Grabs is this Gold Plated Bulova Drivers watch also known as a side view watch. DAY AND DATE , VERY GOOD CONDITION CASE , DIAL AND GLASS.Those were codified by Germany and was issued in Germany by Orfina, Actos, Tegler, Tutima.

It is a man’s dress watch, with an integral original mesh link band dating to about 1960. The woman selling the watch for an estate sale couldnt open it to even tell what movement it had in it. The case needed some help,it had some scratches and gouges. I removed the crystal with my "hot glue gun " method.It wasnt working, and no way to check really as it was missing its crown. And the Benrus has a very nice DR 2L5 17 jewel swiss mechanical movement . It was one of those 2 piecer stems , and the male part with the crown was missing.Anyway, not that it working mattered much, as i completely serviced the movement, breaking it all down, and cleaning it.

I also filed and sanded the case some, then buffed it out. I put together the stem and a crown i found that was waterproof with a decent seal that fit over the crown tube on the benrus. Its still showing some freckles on its dial that i couldnt clean off, but its minimal.The one thats there seals, but could look better i think.
