I got this at a garage sale along with 9 other watches all for a buck each....but I took this to a Jeweller and he said it's special....1974 Swiss Bulova (date stamped "N4) and it has an Omega movement worth maybe $800! Apparently Bulova bought a bunch of movt.'s from them and undersold the price to make it up in bulk sales. Nice find, except the back case on the gold edges is heavily worn but accurate as ever but I had to put a new crystal and polished the face;)

Nah he still does Rolexes (but did sell me a Swatch). Hes in the drivers seat of the Jeep at the moment and my brother is in the back. Heading home from Oklahoma.

Ralph, that's an awesome find. I would hang onto that as the Omega movement definitely increases its value, and its gorgeous!
