Every serious collector of Bulovas has one - 1953 President "A". Only the slightest hint of wear on the highest points under magnification.

I'm posting this one from my collection to show off the great band I just acquired from an antique store. It is near perfect and was mounted on a running Beaumont branded "President A wannabe" as seen in the last photo next to the "A". I bought the Beaumont just for the band and it's a perfect aesthetic match. Bulova should have paired this band to The President. I think it puts this iconic watch right over the top. Band is a "Classique" 10K GF and the only one I've ever seen.

Additional Information: 

Purchased at an antique store for the marginal price. Tagged with "runs" on the ticket.

I looked thw watch up on this web site and it appears indentical to the 1943 President pic posted. I did not look at other decades, just 40s mainly.

Any help identifying the watch is greatly appreciated.

Watch runs very fast, in 5 hours it is about 50 mins ahead, so about 10 minutes per hour. 

I replaced the aftermarket gold metal band with an aftermarket brown leather.

I love this watch. Will be looking into getting it worked on soon. One watch repairman told me he thought the problem was with the "balancer" if that makes any sense?

Since the watch has beeb opened, the crystal pooped off (and I put it back on). Need get that looked at as well.

 

Thanks
