This one is in SS, but others come in gold plated version....Found as NOS in the distributor warehouse, a pawnshop is selling it for under $125usd...how can I resist?haha....will add to my NOS 60s RICOH homage....

It has a generic ETA 2834-1 caliber...38mm to crown. 28,800bph....(mistakenly typed in 2836:( )

Ranfft pegs this movement made 1979-1982..

I think I will wait for yours to come to see actual pics! The size is on the smaller side and just about identical to my Zodiac GMT with the exception the Bulova takes a 20mm band and appears perhaps a bit larger due to the shape of the bezel! I think the smaller bezel makes the dial appear larger!?

In the pic you posted it appears to be GOLD but in doing a Google search all other pics are of that of a WHITE/SILVER dial!
