1950 Bulova Ruxton, L0 date code (movement and case back), 10k RG case, Stainless Back, 17 Jewel 10BM Movement.

Watch includes original Display Case, Outer Box, Guarantee Book, and a removed portion of the original bracelet.

Original bracelet was replaced by a JB Champion scissor-expansion bracelet (1/15 12K gold-filled top and stainless steel back) . Watch includes a 3-link section of the original bracelet that was removed; this removed portion matches the bracelet that is seen in the Ruxton advertisements during the early 1950s; and is packaged in the original manilla envelope written on and used by the jeweler that re-sized the bracelet.

Display case is in great condition. Outer box shows some wear. Guarantee Book in good condition; binding is coming apart. Watch crystal has some scratches. Watch case is in great condition, and has a wonderful gold shine. Movement is in working condition. Dial shows some wear, but is fairly clean.
