Dear Forum, 

    With some help I have been able to now upload photographs of my “Mimmie’s Watch”. Sadly in my family the mystery of the watch has been extremely difficult since both my beloved Mimmie has long passed away. I was given the Watch on my 21st birthday as a truly beautiful gesture and gift from my Papa (Grandfather). He has now also passed and the only other person is my Mother and sadly she knew nothing about the Watch. 

   A very kind person helped me with the photographs so they could be uploaded to my account. The case numbers and markings are hard to make out, so I am going to explain: 

   On the case top  it reads: “Bulova 10k Gold Filled” 

   On the case bottom it reads: “ H562694”

   The inscription reads: “M.A.A 12-25-1947” it was a Christmas gift to my Mimmie    

       The watch itself is silver or white gold. The hands of the Watch are a beautiful blue color and the best part is it still works. 

The mystery is mainly because I can’t find any Watch like this one. Some are very similar but they are not in “White Gold”. 

 

THANK YOU in advance for your time and help me find the truth behind my beloved Mimmie’s Watch, my special Family Heirloom.

This is my latest find in the Her Excellency line.  I believe it is the Her Excellency "S".  It is my first watch in solid 14K yellow gold.  It came with a stretch replacement band that didn't really match so I put the cord band on it.  I am going to try and find a NOS band like the original.  I purchased an ad to go with it.  Thanks.

Here is a 14K gold filled Her Excellency.  It is a pink variant like the yellow gold "C".  I haven't been able to find a variant for this one unfortunately.  I would assume it is "D" or "E" but no ads to confirm the variant.  It has a nice clean dial and it is running.  The high points on the case have a little wear but not too bad.  Thank you!

I have been waiting for a pristine one of these to come up for sale but it hasn't come along yet so I picked this one up.  I just love these dials and wanted one in each of the colors they came in.  I believe this is the Her Excellency "M".  Thanks.

Hello,  I really like the Her Excellency line and picked up this one to add to my collection.  It is 10K white gold filled.  It has a 21 jewel movement and a band that matches so well it looks like it was made for this model but I do not find an ad with it.  I believe this is the Her Excellency "L".  In looking at the ads it doesn't seem to matter what face or band it has to be an "L" which I find interesting when they change variants in other lines.  Thanks all!

Hi All!  I really love the Her Excellency models and wanted to add a white gold one to my collection.  I was happy to find this 10K white gold filled with grey dial.  I think it is the "H" variant.  The only ad I could find is pretty fussy but I found a yellow gold as "F" and pink gold as "G" so even though it is fussy the "H" seems to fit.  Let me know if you think that is it.  Thanks!!

I believe this is a Her Excellency but not sure on the model.  The case and band looks like an N but the face looks like the G or S.  The case is 14K rose gold filled.  The band looks like the original from the ads but is lighter than the case.  Thank you for looking and for any help.
