IS THERE, OR WAS THERE EVER, A TRUE 24 HOUR US MILSPEC MILITARY WATCH. THE FIRST TWO ITEMS BELOW ARE SIMPLY FACT SHEETS SHOWING THAT THERE NEVER WAS OR WERE A 24 HOURS MILITARY WATCH. NOT JUST A 24 HOUR ON DIAL BUT 24 HOURS I PLACED THE ABOVE BELOW DIRECT FACTUAL US MIL SPEC MILITARY LIST OF WATCHES AND DATES. THERE ARE MIL-SPC PAGES AND NONE HAVE A 24 HOUR MOVEMENT. OF ANY BRAND LET ALONE BULOVA.
BEFORE READING BELOW VIEW THE ABOVE AND BELOW SHEET, THEN READ ON.WE HAVE ASKED ON OF THE INTERNETS MOST ACTIVE IN BULOVA 24 HOR WATCHES TO SEND US SONE FACTS BUT HE HADSNOT.
A NOTE, WHILE THERE IS NO MIL-SPEC FOR A TRUE 24 HOUR MIL WATCH, THERE ARE SOME PEOPLE WHO ARE REMOVING BULOVA CIVILLIAN 1960 24 HR MOVEMENTS AND PLACING THEM IN BOLOVA A-17-A HACKING CASES AND THEN OFFERING THEM FOR 5 TIMES THE PRICE OF A BULOVA MILITARY.
THE MIL-SPEC MILITARY LIST WITH DATES. IN ADDITION WATCH BELOW
VINTAGE 1961 STAINLESS BULOVA 3818A MILITARY HACK ORIGINAL
WRIST WATCH MIL-W-3818A SER
WHILE BULOVA CONTRACTED STAR WATCH CASE CO TO BUILD THEIR CASES,

TRUE 24 HOUR WATCHES
here is excerpt of bulova offers
Case: Star watch case, Excellent condition. All stainless steel, original, very crisp, 33mm wide, screw down back, military Ordinance information on case back. Some light scratches.
Beware of other sellers with cases that have no ordinance information and no Star watch case embossed logo, they are fake.
Crystal: Original domed acrylic is in good condition, nice and clear. Some very light scratches.
Beware of non-Star watch cases that have mineral crystals, which are not original.
Movement: Mechanical True 24 hour movement. 10BNCH hacks, winds, and sets. Keeping good time, within 7 seconds of quartz watch after 1 day on bench.
Beware of other Bulova movements altered to be 24 hour movements, the only original 24 hour mechanical movements are the 10BNCH and the 10CNCH, which both have the hack mechanism.
Unless some one can show me a contract or MILSPEC that DEMONSTRATES THE GOV INVESTING IN TRUE 24HR BULOVAS I MUST SAY THEY ARE FAKES
I RECENTLY NOTED A SERIES OF alleged SUPER RARE 24 HOUR MILITARY WATCHES BEING OFFERED. IT IS THE BULOVA A-17/3818A TYPES THATCONCERN ME THE MOST, ESPECIALLY WITH 900.00 PRICE TAGS. OFFERS LIKE THE ONE BELOW ARE RAMPANT IN THEIR DEMAND FOR 1000.00 A POP.
For your consideration is an Excellent Authentic Vintage Men’s Bulova True 24 Hour
Beware of other sellers with cases that have no ordinance
Movement: Mechanical True 24 hour movement.
***NOTE: THE 10BNCH AND 1OCNCH ARE HACKED/ALTERED
AND THAT IS THE PROBLEM
I SIMPLY CANNOT BELIEVE THE US MILITARY WHOM ARE SO TO THE POINT
I BELIEVE IT BETTER NOT TO RESTORE DIAL

AS 1187 Features manual wind sweep second signature; shock device
ABOVE IS A PARTS MOVEMENT WITH THE HOUR WHEEL + MINUTE WHEEL.
AN HOUR WHEEL FOR THE
SO, YOU CAN UNDERSTAND HOW A 24 HOUR
RESTORED BY ROCK NOT A 24HR WATCH
SO, IS THERE A True 24 Hr BULOVA MILITARY? THERE WAS A 24HR WATCH BUILT BY BULOVA FOR PUBLIC CONSUMPTION. BUT I CANNOT FIND ANYTHING WHAT SO EVER ON A MILITARY. THERE ARE NO PRE-CONTRACT SPEC SHEETS W/ANY DETAILS FOR A 24 HR WATCH
SO, WE KNOW BULOVA OFFERED A CIVY 24 HOUR WATCH IN COMPETITION WITH SEVERAL COMPANIES ONLY
THERE WERE ALSO TRUE 24 HOURS A DAY GMT WATCHES IN THE LATE 1950’S,
BUT, THERE WERE *NO 24HR ISSUE MILITARY WATCHES THAT WE CAN EVEN
*ELGIN PRODUCED A WWII 24 HOUR MILITARY WATCH AND TIMER
IS THIS BULOVA A-17 / A 17A A FAKE 24HR MILITARY OR NOT
HERE IS ARE 2 BULOVA 24HR 10CNCH NOTE THE 10CNCH MOVEMENT NUMBER BOTH DATE TO 1960-61
ONLY 1960 ERA 24 HOUR BULOVA WATCHES FOR THE GENERAL PUBLIC. APPEAR AND THEREARE NO FACT SHEETS, SPECIFICATIONS OR ITEM NUMBER FOR A BULOVA 24 HR MILITARY SO YES THERE WERE BULOVA 24HR CIVILIAN 1960 + BUT WE CANNOT DISCOVER CONTRACTS/ORDERS WE KNOW BULOVA LOST OUT ON FIRST VIETNAM CONTRACT WE HAVE YET TO DISCOVER A CONTRACT OR ANY GROUP BUY
NOTE THE INFO ON CASE BACK FOR HACKING BULOVA – IF IT ALSO WAS FULL 24HR IT WOULD NOT HAVE SAME DESIGNATION INFO
I PLACED THESE MILITARY SPECIFICATION SHEETS BELOW TO DEMONSTRATE THE FACT THAT EVERY WATCH/STYLE PURCHASED BY THE US MILITARY HAD TO HAVE A SPEC SHEET. I HAVE YET TO FIND ONE, NOR A CONTRACT, NOR AN ID NUMBER. THESE OFFERS FOR BULOVA 24 HR WATCH MIL WATCHES DO NOT HAVE A “NUMBER” OR “CODE”. INSTEAD, THE WATCHES I HAVE SEEN HAVE THE A-17 A-17A AND 3818 A. I SIMPLY AM CONFUSED. FOR THE MILITARY WOULD HAVE HAD A CODE AND A SPEC SHEET. YOU DO NOT CALL UP A GEBNERAL AND TELL HIM YOU HAVE MILITARY WATCHES FOR SALE
I HAVE THE US MILITARY MARINES AIRFORCE ARMY NAVY WATCH [,MILSPEC] SPECIFICATIONS BEFORE AND AFTER THIS RELEASE. BELOW ARE TWO OF THE TWENTY SHEETS JUST FOR ONE WATCH. every watch style has had a complete mil specification
