Additional Information: 

I inherited this watch many years ago, it hasn't been worn mutch and is in excellent condition.  I have a few questions:

1) On the back it says "10k Gold Filled", but in the original box, one of the advertising tabs says 14k.  Is this watch 14k White Gold?  (Photos included)

2) Are these real diamonds on the face?

3) Is this the original band ... it is a 3rd party band?  Did Bulova make their own bands, or rely on 3rd party co's?

Any additional insight about this watch would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

I believe this watch is a 1968 beau brumell,with a 14k white gold case,and 20 diamond face. It is marked 30 jewels and self winding on the face. On the back it is marked waterproof,14k gold case,shock resistant,and anti magnetic.Other than a few scuffs on the crystal, the watch looks and performs as new. The entire watch is original and was sitting in a gold and silver buyers case with other watches he had bought from customers over the years.(He thought it was stainless steel and thus had no melt value or he would have scrapped it for the gold content!)

I think this is a 66 Beau Brummel - Hand wind not automatic.    I am not a watdhmaker or Jeweler so cannott figure out how to open the case.  I know that the movement comes out from the front, but cannot figure out how and do not want to mark it.   The face has Diamonds at 12,3,6,9   raised Bulova, and painted Waterproof  - face appears to be silver or white gold with a colouring added ?? 

The case is 33mm overall10kt white gold filled.  M6, antimagnetic, shock resistant, waterproof.    I think the crocodile strap is possibly original - watch appears to have very little wear.   Small crown also 4mm

Identifiction would be great  thank you

Cheers   Janet

Additional Information: 

10K white gold filled, 4 real diamonds set in silver/grey dial. White metal raised Bulova on dial, white lettering, white metal hands, baton hour markers and minute dots. M0 on case and mvmnt. Period Black leather strap in great condition, the type Bulova used, could be original. Stunning piece, I think it is a President variant, given the case and lug shape, and of course the date. Put in my 1960 President to compare. Has now been changed to Beau Brummell thanks to NOVA's sterling work.
