This sweetheart has been in my collection for a couple years. In original clamshell and 23 marked gold cardboard box with original tissue paper. Back and movement marked "L7". I opened case when I received it to make sure it was correct, and it is. Jeweler sticker was stuck on box partially obscuring Bulova sticker. This was represented to me as new old stock from a closed store and it sure looks that way. Only thing missing from this package is the string tag. Band is a scissor center mesh JB Champion, and like the watch it is literally pristine.

Hi I know it's the 23 jewel calander model but I believe there were different case types and names. This is a L5 movement & L5 Rolled gold front and back case. Just hoping to find if it had a model name. Thanks Ray. Dial looks great but don't know if it's orginal or refinished? Thanks Ray

Fabulous 1955 Bulova "23 Calendar", self winding movement. Arrow head tipped red pointer hand indicates date and can be advanced manually by a small pusher above the winding crown.  Two letter day indicator above center point on dial. Dial is near flawless, case is in gorgeous condition with only a couple dings in one of the lugs. Winding crown is marked Bulova. Been looking for a nice one for a good long time, this beauty was well worth the wait!

I added new photos as I have removed the strap in favor of an expansion band. Normally I would stay with the strap but I found this NOS band that is almost a perfect match for the band Bulova advertised this watch on.
