BULOVA GOLD FILLED CURVED TONNEAU CASE AND SERVICED 1942Dear Darryl and team at Darlor Watches,
After the inevitable Christmas and New Year postal delays, the lovely Bulova Watch I ordered from you back on 12th December arrived here in Australia today, 3rd January 2017.
Its come to a good home, I can assure you. Iíve photographed it, saved the photos, written up my records for my watch files, wound it up (it started perfectly) and have it on right now. Iíd love to wear it out tonight, but its wet here in Brisbane, so best avoid that with a vintage watch from the early 40ís!! Itís so elegant, so light to wear and so snug on my 17.5cm wrist.
Iím very happy with this watch and Iíll be back soon to buy from you again. By the way, the box it came with/in is an extra thoughtful touch. It also helped to protect this delicate, fine timepiece from the violence that the long distance o/seas posting can unleash.
Until next time, and wishing you and your team at Darlor all the very best in 2017,

WRIST GOLF SCORE KEEPER 1952
STOCK NUMBER # GOLF1000------No gimmies no mulligan's no kick it when I'm not looking "Look Darryl wow what a shot I took" and Mark D your caught red handed next time you give the ball that small kick out of the brush or you hit a tree and end up on the highway. I have you cornered with this perfect Gold score keeper. Your 89 will no be an honest 165!!!!!! The small buttons on the side keep track of the hole and the windows at the top keep the score of the number of shots per player per hole. For you Mark there needs to be three windows per hole!!!!. This score keeper is 45mm long and 33mm wide. The long button on the right side is to turn the number of strokes on the right window and as Mark knows when it hits 9 it turns the other window over to double digits. What a great way and its fool proof. As Mark knows mini put is a tough game"
P.S. I will never forget that shot you took up north and it went over the trees and we herd WOOOOOOMMMMPPPP right on a hood of a Mercedes car and zooooooom we left my ball where it was and ran to the second hole lol!!
Or I spliced it one time in the south shore with another friend and SPLOOOOSH right in pool and a child was screaming as thank GXd it missed her but scared her to death. Needless to say Russian Roulette is safer for me lol
Or up North With Mark D, I hit a ball God knows where and we herd a TWONNNGGGGGG. I hit the rim of a barrel garbage can the ball popped into the air and KERPLUNK into the garage barrel it went. The law of physics gives me 1/100 of a degree to make this shot but lol in it was! We pee'd in our pants it was so funny.
