For sale is a CARAVELLE World Time GMT, which you can tell by its name & appearance, has been designed to tell the approximate time in different corners of the world.

CARAVELLE is a division of BULOVA, much like TISSOT is of OMEGA & TUDOR is of ROLEX. The purpose of a separate division is branding. Under a different name, the company avoids confusing the established market under the parent name & is then free to introduce new designs to a fresh market!

Seeing as the band & clasp are BULOVA, it is safe to assume that this watch is one of CARAVELLE's early or introductory models. This is a marketing strategy that discourages "market fear". It assures the market that although it is a new label, it is a product of or has ties to a well-established watchmaker.

case back embossed with CARAVELLE name logo, "WATER RESISTANT", "STAINLESS STEEL", "AUTOMATIC". These details are difficult to make out because they are lightly etched. They're visible at close inspection under a bright light.

We cannot guarantee the effectiveness of its waterproof closure because this watch is vintage.
