I picked up this piece the other day. I've worn it a few days and keeps excellent time.  I've looked through the ads,  the "L3" stamp on the case, the engraved inscription which kind of made me sad as obviously this was someone's Christmas preset as it was engraved with " B.T. to C.T. 12-25-1954. I'm leaning towards a 1954 Winchester or maybe 53 Winchester? As annotated in the ad, this dial is a quad dial with the dark triangles at the 9-12 and 3-6 position. 

I really like this watch and I am considering to send it off for a redial.  My only hesitation is I don't know if IDC will be able to replicate the quad shading which I think makes this model very unique.  If anyone has any experience with a quad redial, I'd love to know.  Also, aparently the watchmaker that serviced this removed the weight from the movement which also would include the bulova stamp and movement number etc.  So I can only assume this is a "10CSC".  I don't know if the missing movement weight will move this from being identified as a Winchester to "unknown". The funny thing, I bought it thinking it was an automatic but I always manually wind these guys up to get it going.  Imagine my face when I opened it up and I'm looking at the movement thinking something ain't right here.. At first I though the watchmaker replaced some of the bridges with generic parts as they were not shiney or stamped.  Then my next thought was... wait a minute where is the oscillating weight LOL...  Anway I'll give it a go here for the experts.  As always, thank you for your time!

Cheers,

Rick

L3 for 1953, and a nice 10CSC movement in this heavily brassed out specimen. The dial is shaded, I hope it shows up as such, and I have its sister watch also, a WaterTite with the same specs and same dial which I will post separately.

I'm thinking Winchester here? 

10CSC is from an AS 1320 ebauche.

Hello all my third post on the site!

My second site was a request for a name and number of a watchmaker that can help me with my watch, possible overhaul and dial cleanning

Here is another Bulova watch I own.  Based on what I have researched on this site and a couple others, I believe it to be a Winchester.  The design of the lugs is cool!

Tell me what your thoughts are on the watch.

Thank you and enjoy,

James
