This is my great-uncle's watch. I was given it by my aunt, and it wasn't working.
In my haste, I took it to a very well respected (and expensive) master watch maker. He told me it was from 1966 Bulova Ambassador, but it had a 1959 movement which was cool. Nothing crazy or rare, but it was a nice vintage watch. He then took 3-months to repair it and it's now back in working order.
Recently, however, I was staring at the dial and noticed something. Ambassdor was missing an 'a'.
Not that I mind, as it's an heirloom, but it did bother me that the watch maker did not saying anything to me when he repaired it? Perhaps he didn't want to hurt my feelings? Or perhaps I should have asked?
But I feel it would be strange that my great-uncle would have bought a fake Bulova? Especially a manual wind (Bulova did release exciting Electric watches in the 1960).
What do you think? Is it fake or could it be a misprint?
