My grandfather bought this watch for my father on the occasion of my birth in 1960. My dad was supposed to give it to me when I turned 18, but he got attached to it so I told him to hang on to it. I was a long haired, rough and tumble type, so it really didn't fit my lifestyle. When my dad passed (2014) I finally took ownership. While trying to find out about the watch I came across this site and thought I'd throw it on the pile. I thought it was a 1959 Beau Brummell, but it has the diamonds in the 1,3,5,7,9,11, and I've read here that there are no ads for this type of watch, so I don't know what it is. 

I can't seem to successfully upload any pictures of the watch, though the one with the model number seemed to work. Here are some links, though. Perhaps someone with more tech savvy than I possess can do it.

1951 Beau Brummel in remarkably good original condition. Case back marked L1, movement is L0. This one just came to me from a non-watch savy source as you see it on the nice Bulova marked band that is usually seen on same period AAward watches. Judging from the unmolested crud on the band pins, it's been on the watch a long time. Literally no plating wear on case or band; crystal is almost perfect.

This one has been in my collection for a few years and has always mystified me. Is it a beau Brummell or a 23? It came to me in the 23 box as seen and is literally spotless. Kreisler gold filled band appears to be original to the watch. 6 diamonds on a sunburst dial.. Case and movement dated L6. By all appearances, it's a "23" with a diamond dial, and I have no reservations that this is an unmolested original. I can'r say whether box is factory original or if it was dropped in by a jeweler at time of sale. Runs and keeps perfect time.
