Additional Information: 

This watch appears to be a 1947 Her Excellency "N". The 21 jewel 6BA movement has a 47 date code. Both case front and back have corresponding numbers. When acquired, it came with a broken/set mainspring, a broken third wheel upper pivot, worn upper balance wheel cap jewel, worn crown, and excessive oil and dirt on/in the mainspring barrel and adjacent components/parts. The crystal wasn't chipped, but was scratched. Also, the black cord band was non original and in poor condition. The movement was very thoroughly cleaned, had the balance, balance upper cap jewel, and third wheel replaced. It received a new mainspring, crown, and crystal. The case was cleaned, polished and re-burnished. A like-original rose gold expansion bracelet could not be found, so a vintage Forstner square snake chain bracelet was added. Placed into a ladies Bulova Excellency box, the watch was given to my wife as one of her anniversary gifts.

Purchased at a garage sale - 1951 Her Excellency "CC" Excellent running condition and quite accurate. Movement and case back both marked L1. The unattached band came with it. Woman said watch belonged to her Mother, and loose band was the original "that bothered her wrist", so she replaced it and kept it as a spare, just in case. We all know how family memories blur and change over time, but ad seems to say it could be so.

My great Uncle gave me this watch as a keepsake to remember him by.  It belonged to his wife.  As far as I know that is the original band on the watch.  The clasp was broken and I replaced it. (Not with the original type clasp.)  I did not see any ads that had a watch with this type band but the watch itself looks very familiar to the Her Excellency "C".  But I will leave that to the experts. I am just curious of the model.  Thanks for any help in identifying my watch.

Hi all

I think this may be a H.E. J  but I would appreciate members comments to help verify its identity

the movement is a 21 jewej 6BA. it marked 47 and stamped Bulova watch co.

The case is stamped 10k Gold Filled Bulova and has the serial number 792533

The watch is in nice condition and is running but needs servicing as it gains about an hour per day. It also has an engaving on the back which looks as though it was given as a gift to some ladiy.

I am not sure about the band. It does seem to match quite well but I can't find a match for it. 

The crown is stamped Bulova

The strap looks original and neither the case or strap are showing any signs of wear. I have looked through the adverts on the db but so far not come up with model.

Unfortunately the watch is not running and is missing the crystal. It is a very pretty little watch and i intend to get it going again. i would appreciate it if any member could please help me out with acquiring a crystal for for this watch.

A little long in the tooth for an Her Excellency but I believe this was one of the last I'm thinking.

I believe this to be a "Her Excellency CC" as per the ad.
