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.

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.

Additional Information: 

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.
