Additional Information: 

1966 Bulova unknown model, 17J 10CL movement with a M6 date code, 10K RGP bezel & back with a M6 date stamp, neat White "shadow" dial with directional ribs that catches the light at different angles to make it look 2-tone with applied Gold markers.

The matching Speidel band looks original to the watch, and in the last couple of weeks I must have seen 3 or 4 of these identical to this one on everyone's favorite auction site with the same band, so it must have come with it.

It is a nice looking and running watch, but it does have some small wear-through spots on the case back.

Mr. Baker just reminded me to look a little harder in the database, He has a NOS example in there already...Thanks Geoff!

Hello one and all,

I'm new to vintage watch collecting but have been checking it out for a while.

This is my first vintage watch,a Bulova unknown? I bought it on ebay usa recently

but I don't know what it is exactly I hope someone can help me out.

It's is quite small even though I checked out the dimensions I thought it would be bigger

in reality,it's 27mm by 18mm lug,to small and feminine for me to wear,it was listed as a mans

watch,were mens watches sometimes this small? As ladies watches are tiny in comparrison.

The inside movement states seventeen jewels,Bulova watch 10CL and adjustable Swiss M6.

The stainless steel back states Bulova M6 10k R.G.P Bezel and J195777 ( is that year 1957?)

The case it self has no markings at all,I do believe it's gold plated though.

Is it possible that the case does not belong to the movement?

I would be gratefull if anyone could help shine a little light.

Many thanks.
