Hands and Crystal for 1953 President

Andersok's picture


I am looking for a pair of Gold Modern hands for a 1953 President with a 21J 10BM movement. I would like to know which Hand Code package is correct, and if anyone has a pair for sale. Perhaps it uses a 7AK GM#?

I am also looking for the crystal for this watch, if anyone has one for sale. Other posts related to this model have stated a: GS CMX 385-10;  or BB = CMX 2455 or AM Perfit HMC 245/2

I'm still trying to locate the correct hands for this model; Jim only had the dauphine type (thanks for checking), but it appears the correct ones would be modern; so perhaps the correct ones are 7AK GM16?

There's a set of 7AK #63-64 GM 20 hands on flea bay right now for a buy it now of $9.95 with free shipping. I don't know if 20 is the length you need or not. You'll have to determine that. Just do a search for Bulova part #63-64 and you should run across them if they don't sell before hand.
