No, it's a NOS vintage Caravelle by Bulova with a very rare 3D dial. It measures 38.2 mm by 41.5 mm and is 11.7 mm high. The brushed case is finished in a black that does not appear to be PVD and actually looks like some sort of anodizing. The dial has vertical brushing and a 3D effect that ranges from blue, to grey, to almost black in some lighting.

My understanding is that this watch was manufactured by Bulova in the 1970s and it features an automatic movement. It comes on a thin, glove soft, 19 mm strap.

I have been able to only find one other example that was for sale on WUS some time ago. I doubt I'll ever encounter another person wearing one of these. 8)

As a fellow owner of a vintage NOS Caravelle (transistorized though), I have to say ......... you rock :thumbup1:. I've seen one of these recently somewhere. Perhaps on Ebay, or Etsy? Nice catch, that is one unusual dial.

I'd wear that in a hot second. Nice......Caravelles are a bit the black-sheep poor second-cousins. There are some really nice looking ones around. I have one but I'm fairly sure it's a ladies watch!!! I don't wear it anymore. It looked great on ebay though at the time! Of course, it has sort of died :001_rolleyes: well, the crown pulls out but it still works. i'm trying to work out if I get it fixed (what $150 -$200 for a $60 watch.....) for the GF or just put it sort of at the back of the cupboard and contemplate it once in a while...
