The Astronaut is in generally good condition. It will be sent to Bob Piker next week for service and minor restoration.
Interesting... my '67 Astronaut came with a completely different box. Wonder how many different boxsets there were.
Great looking watches, and while I prefer the bullet band, the coffin is nice too! I'm going to keep an eye out for one!
Yeah I take the original box thing with a grain of salt. They usually aren't. But if it's a nice box.....I would definitely not have expected Bulova to put that watch in those boxes. I don't know the history of the watches but I do know sellers will sometimes place watches in boxes they have around and claim them to be in original boxes.
