1955 [M5] BULOVA
30 JEWEL
SELF WINDING
MADE SAME TIME AS THE SUPER 23 JEWEL SELFWINDING
ADJ 6 POS AND TEMPERATURE STAR BURST

THE 30 JEWELS WERE A GREAT MARKETING PROGRAM
DURING WHAT WAS A  JEWEL WAR
YET IN THE BULOVA INSTANCE THE JEWELS WERE ACTUALLY
PLACED TO IMPROVE THE MOVEMENT
HAD THERE BEEN NOT A WAR. SHE WOULD HAVE HAD 23

RESTORING THIS 1955 BULOVA
AND
FITTING HER INTO A CASE MADE

15 YEARS AFTER HER 1955 PRODUCTION YEAR

WHILE I CAN RESTORE MOST ANY TIME PIECE IF I HAVE THE TIME
[PUN NOT INTENDED]
THE KEY HERE WILL BE THE MOVEMENT DAMAGE
I MAKE ZIP ON PARTS AND HIGHLY RECOMMEND THAT MY PATRONS
SUPPLY PARTS WHEN EVER POSSIBLE
BUT I MAY HAVE SOME INTERCHANGEABLE PARTS
I BELIEVE THAT THE HAIR AND MAINSPRING MUST BE INVESTED IN

SEVERE RUST DAMAGE
FROZEN CASE RING MOVEMENT AND CASE WALL

CASE MOVEMENT RING AND MOVEMENT WERE SEIZED

INTERNAL RUSTING AND CORROSION
THE FACT IT IS RUNNING IS AMAZING. NO DOUBT MAIN SPRING WILL REQUIRE REPLACEMENT
HAIR SPRING HAS RUST. ROTOR HAS SEVERE RUST. BUT MOVEMENT BRIDGES LOOK GOOD
THE ROTOR CAN BE CLEANED UP THOUGH IT WILL ALWAYS HAVE PITTING

SHORT BALANCE ROTATION CAUSING FAST OPERATION
THE VIDEO WILL SHOW HOW THE BALANCE ROTATION EFFECTS TIMING
IS IS NOT RUST OR DAMAGE TO WHEELS/PINIONS OR STAFFS OUT SIDE OF BALANCE
THE HAIR SPRING HAS RUST AND IT MAY HAVE PIVOT DAMAGE
THIS CAUSES THE BALANCE NOT TO ARC COMPLETELY
LEFT TO RIGHT THE SWINGS ARE SHORT
I HAVE SPENT TIME TO DEMONSTRATE A GOOD ARC IN A PERFECT TIMED WITTNAUER WWII BALANCE.
IN FACT IT ACTUALLY IS MOVING FASTER
DEMONSTRATING THAT IT IS NOT THE SPEED OF THE BACK AND FORTH ROTATIONS
BUT THE FULL SWING OF THE ROTATIONS
THIS IS THE "BEAT" OF THE WATCH

CONCLUSION

AS IT STANDS I RECOMMEND A 75.00 DIAL RESTORE
WITH ILLUMINATION OF HANDS
A NEW MAIN AND HAIR SPRING

AFTER COMPLETE DISASSEMBLY AND INSPECTION
I WILL KNOW IF IT IS A FEASIBLE RESTORATION

BEFORE 7.5 WEEK SOAK

 

IMG_4330.JPG (164277 bytes)
PAINTED BY BRUSH EDGES OF RING AND CASE
BUT THIS SHOULD NOT BE USED AS A DIP
WITH HAIR SPRING RUST OR DIAL MOUNTED

USE BEFORE WATCH MOVEMENT
IS CLEANED PAINTED BY BRUSH

IMG_2875.JPG (163441 bytes)

SOAKED 7.5 WEEKS IN INDUSTRIAL USE ONLY  KROIL
30%  RUST DISSOLVED BUT NOT ENOUGH 
BETWEEN CASE/RING/MOVEMENT

COULD NOT SUBMERGE DUE TO DIAL
AND HANDS. THIS STUFF COULD PULL PLATE OFF
AND CAUSE DIAL DAMAGE.

AFTER SOAKING BUT RUST SO BAD IT STILL IS LOCKED

IMG_4302.JPG (158407 bytes)

EVEN USING PRESS WOULD NOT FREE MOVEMENT & DIAL

IMG_4310.JPG (134853 bytes)

LUCKY THAT A NOS BULOVA CASE WAS SUPPLIED
I CUT THE DAMAGED CASE TO PULL THE MOVEMENT.
