Bulova 1942 one button chrono.

I have this 1942 model to trade.
It needs a sweep hand, and the seconds transfer wheel has a broken off pivot. This can be fixed by a skilled watchmaker by making a new pivot, as parts are rare for this.
The push button has issues, and the watch needs a service. The push button crowns can be bought from Frei for $10.

Watch runs fast (probably because the transfer wheel has been taken off). Comes with a 10AH spare movement minus chrono parts, and a spare dial.

I want to swap for a Seiko chrono, must be mechanical. Or W.H.Y.
If you are in UK I would swap for a decent air rifle.

P.S. One of these sold today for over £420 on ebay, it had a badly refinished dial too. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/311808226384? ... EBIDX%3AIT

I forgot to say it is the smallest own-manufacture chronograph in the world, movement is 10''', 23mm and the case is only 28.5mm.
Scarce too.
