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,

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.
