What do you guys think of this one? I think it's a "His Excellency" but I haven't found an ad saying that. I found an "Academy Award" with what looked like the same case but it had a four quadrant painted dial. I'm fairly sure this one is all original.

Hi all I would apriciate any members comments about this watch. I think it is "His Excellency " model but not sure after looking at the various adverts i cant make my mind up.

It is 10 K gold filled case  and bezel. The crown is marked Bulova and the inside of the case is marked Bulova fifth Ave. New York, and the outside is marked with the serial number 9628769 and 10K gold filled  

When it came the case and bezel were very tarnished and the dial was dirty. I spent an hour cleaning both and it has come up looking like a new watch. I timed it over 24hrs and it lost only 2/3 mins.

this one is going straight up for sale again.

Thanks to everyone out there

Hi all

I believe this is a 49 His Exellency NN it is in rose gold 14k gold filled, The strap is a Kreisler Quality USA. gold content 025. the movement is working and keeping time, but the dial good probably do with refinishing. I have tried to clean it up but its still very dark, a job for international dial I think. The watch came complete with the box as in pics

Additional Information: 

This watch was a gift from a friend. It belonged to her father, and she gave it to me to give to my partner, who likes old watches. From studying photos of watches on mybulova.com and a few other websites, we concluded that it's the model known as His Excellency E. The information on the outside of the case reads "Bulova, 10KT RGP, L8 Pat Pend." We understand that RGP refers to the gold-plating (10 karat), and we know that L8 refers to 1958. The watch has a Speidel band.

Neither of us is an expert on watches, so we're hesitant to open this one to get the information on the inside as queried here. We'll appreciate any advice on opening the watch safely.

Also, we think this is a self-winding  ("automatic") watch, but we'd appreciate confirmation of that if you can tell us.

The watch was stored in a jewelry box and has not been used for many years. It runs for short periods of time, then stops. We'd like to get it running again but are not sure what to do, so we'll appreciate any advice on that, too.

We hope you'll find our photos clear. However, if you decide to add the watch to the website, we ask you to include the photo of the front alone. The engraving on the back is personal, and we're not comfortable with having that posted on the site. Thanks for your consideration. And thanks for any advice you are able to provide!

Cheers from Denise
