Bulova 1967 Ambassador

Model ID rating explained.
Manufacture Year: 
1967
Movement Model: 
12EBACD
Movement Jewels: 
30
Case Serial No.: 
509
Case shape: 
Cushion
Gender: 
Mens
Additional Information: 

This M7 Ambassador has a 3-digit number [509] stamped inside the case back and a different, longer number (1-542325), stamped on the outside. This appears to be the case on all examples of this model. I have seen numbers such as 500 and 524 on the inside of other examples. Those other examples (so far as I could examine them via online photos) also had different numbers outside the case back.

I do not know the reference number of this or how it was described in catalogues of the time to differentiate it from other Ambassador 30j models.

Movement is 12EBACD, also marked  SX and D

Inside caseback is stamped CB within a tombstone-shaped cartouche. I do not know whether this indicates the case maker.

This watch was pulled from my grandfather's belongings.  I finally got around to doing some research on it and I believe it is a 1939 AmbassadorC.  It keeps perfect time if wound daily.  Grandfather retired as Chief Engineer at KPRC(NBC) Houston and had fixed watches and clocks all his life.
