1950 Bulova 37145 Academy Award W - New Old Stock. This fabulous watch comes complete with original clam shell display case, outer cardboard storage box, completely unmolested original hang tag, stand up price tag and watch guarantee bond paper. The original Kreisler Bamboo band is in near perfect, unworn condition. I just don't know how it's gets any better. There is hardly a mark on this wonderful example of one of the most sought after Bulova watches. With the ribbed dial and pyramid hour markers beneath the original thick crystal and the ribbed case this is one of the most recognizable Academy Award watches.

I'll stop now, so you can start gazing at what is probably the centerpiece of my New Old Stock Bulova collection.

Hi all

I believe this little beauty is a 1950 Academy Award B ladies watch.

The case is marked, Bulova 10k Gold filled  LO  and the serial number 255180. on the outside. On the inside Bulova . Fifth Avenue. New York.The movement is a 6BC 21 jewel unadjusted. and is marked A9.

the bracelet is marked . Speidel 56 expanding gold plated.

The crown is marked Bulova

Looking through the adverts in the db. the watch has the same dial and case as the A.A B in the 1950 advert. although the strap is different.

There seems to be very little ware to either the case or strap, but it does require a new crystal. the watch runs but will need a service.

Hi All

just received this one this morning " A.A.  X.

seems to be in reasonable condition, apart from requiring a new bracelet , but I think a good black leather one would suit it better.

Case is marked Bulova 10k goid filled. LO . and the serial number 2893678. The movement is a 21J 7AK. and is stamped 49
