Additional Information: 

 Just a nice example of the Bulova Ambassador with the Buren Micro Rotor 1280 calibre. The bezel is 14K gold, and the compressor style case is accessed from the front, with a split stem. I need to replace the crown, and the hands look a bit moth eaten also. I might leave the dial as is, although it certainly won't win any awards either. It runs excellent since I serviced it, when I got it, it was badly magnetized, filthy, and swimming in oil. Also the crystal was the wrong size, and glued in place with gobs of epoxy. I like it, and I think it's a keeper.

Crystal Details: 
18.06mm wide x 24.15mm long
Additional Information: 

This case was discussed on the forum with a movement in it and is almost identical to that one with the exception of the lack of an engraved line around each lug near the end, otherwise it is identical.The back is signed on the inside and outside and is marked 10k gold filled and the back is all gold filled on the outside. The reciever for the movement on the inside of the back is round and the case is slightly curved. The distance between the lugs on each end is 9.50mm. The bracelet is probably original and is marked Krestenmade and is 1/20 10k gold filled as well.

This case is just too beautiful to not get the correct movement put in it and I'm not into creating a frankenbully.

Please contact me by PM if you need to.
