Hi, I have just purchased from ebay USA a near mint 1950`s Bulova Senator for really silly money.
From the pics it looks like there might be a small amount of patina on the hands or simply it is shadowing.. I assume that hands are just gold plated. I might be lucky and my local jeweller might be able to clean them or I need to get replacements. The jeweller would be too lazy to buy a pair so its down to me.
The watch is on its way to the UK so I shall not see it for a couple of months as I am in spain. I assume I order by model number. Would I find this on the inside of the back plate, the outside of the plate or on the movement.
I have 4 pics but for some reason I am unable to attach them to this post.
Generally is there anywhere in particulat that you guys buy watch parts or from ebay, Esslingers or the little old watchmaker in his corner shop. I hope the pics help. TIA. jack

So far there are no pictures. It would help a great deal in finding out the grade of the watch from the pictures. I think that Bulova had a grade stamped on the movement.

In the recent past myself when looking for parts I sometimes would go to Ebay and find a donor watch for the parts I needed.

If the size of the pictures you are trying to post are too big in size, they may not post. I always reduce the size of the pics.

Hi, Yes am having trouble with the pics but now reduced the size so should be ok.
On the ebay sale particulars it quotes ww-244. no idea what that is or whether it helps. Pics not that brilliant but would appreciate you taking a look please. thanks jack

So, on the movement in that small rectangular box is a number and it could also have a letter. That is the number for your watch telling you what the movement is. Everything pertaining to the movement is based on that number.
I cannot make it out because it is too blurry. That number ww 244 must be some kind of reference number for the person selling the watch because it does not relate to the watch.

Nice looking watch from what I can see.
