Hi Kelly, Bulova lost two lorry loads of records when moving to new premises in the 1970 's, and much of their earlier model information was gone.

We try to find adverts and old info, but there are still gaps, and missing models to ID.

Why not post your watch on site?

We may be able to help.

I believe this to be 1953 Kirkwood based on the 1955-1957 Line book BAWD0127 Page 22 of 40

I'm comfortable with the year, until such time that we find a model name to the contrary.
