Watch Description

Here is one I have been after a while and is a first for the DB.   Based on the 1973 Linebook this is a 1971 Bulova Jet Clipper A.  The case is a thick solid stainless steel block with a 12 sided bezel.  The case back is stainless with an N1 date code.    The dial is a beautiful teal blue with raised silver hour markers.  The movement is 23J 11AOACB with an N2 date code.    I got this from my buddy Dave and he was able to find a new replacement bracelet like the original with almost matching blue center links.

These colored dials are becoming more and more popular with new watches, so it's nice to see that Bulova were ahead of the times...again. It's the splash of color on the wrist that attract attention.

Nice example Jim and congrats for finding one.

Glad to see that repo bracelets are on Ebay for sale now.  It really completes the watch.

Would you be able to send me the bracelet mm size and possibly the link to find a replacement?
