Watch Description

This is a 1973 Bulova Jet Star "E".  It is a massive hunk of stainless steel with a brushed bezel and polished side.  The dial is a brown gray gradient color that fades dark to light from the top down. It is also slightly textured.  The movement is an 11BSACB 17J with an N3 date code   The movement is set with a plastic ring in this massive steel case that is quite heavy.  (FYI..the 1972 has a steel one so they must have changed it to lower cost).  The case back is etched with the serial number and N3 date code on the bottom.    Has the original bracelet and luckily is just fit my wrist.  It is otherwise running and in good condition.

It's always nice to get an upper body workout whilst wearing a vintage watch, although you may need to alternate wrists to obtain a symmetrical physique :-)
