Bruce's Vintage Watches

This page is where you find all the watches I have sold since the beginning of this website in 2013. This page automatically updates whenever a watch is sold, so the watches are listed chronologically, from most recent watch sold to the earliest watches sold. If you can't find a certain watch in the store that I've just announced, it's probably because somebody beat you to it, and you'll find it here.

Unlike my competitors, I leave the prices on the watches so you can see what they bought and to see how I stack up against my competition on prices. You can even perform a little market research to see what your own watches are worth. I hope you find this latest function of my website useful!

Leather case, 2-1/4 inches closed, 3-1/8 inches open. This is a MANUAL wind watch and is wound from the crown only; does not wind when you open and close the case like some Movado hermetos and other. Case is a yellow base metal, and has a "foot" that springs out when you open the case so that the watch will stand like miniature clock. Movement…More details

Bulova "Conrad" pink gold filled
Bulova 1947 "Conrad" model, one of Bulova's smaller watches for men. Definitely a man's model watch in its day. It was featured in several ads, and was one of the featured men's models in the 1941-'42 Montgomery Ward catalog. At the same time, this watch would look great on a woman's wrist as well.  I wouldn't necessary call this model "rare,"…More details

Waltham 100-jewel self-winding

MECHANIC'S SPECIAL! Waltham 100 jewels. Electroplated case with stainless back. 43mm long lug to lug by 35mm wide. I was saving this one more for its historical value that anything else, because it's really a novelty watch when you come down to it. The ‘50s and ‘60s saw watch manufacturers competing in a “jewel war,” trying to convince the public…
