My Favorite Bulovas

Hi everyone,

Thank you for making this site possible for those of us who love to collect old watches.

I have 2 older Bulovas from my collection that I haven't been able to find on this site.

The first one is a M6 11AL 17J unadjusted Swiss that is housed in a M6 10K RGP case #I399547.

It has a Stainless looking Raised dial with a diamond at the 3 and 9 positions,  sub-seconds at 6


The second one is a L9 10BP 21J with 5 adj housed in a L9 10K RGP case #D533418. It has a 2-Tone dial with Raised Gold Markers. It is in need of a new Glass Crystal so if anyone knows who might have one that would be much apprreciated. The band fits the watch, but I am not sure if it is Orignal, it is marked Admiral USA.

I also have a L1 surgeon with a black dial that looks a lot like the one pictured on this site, but the hands are the Skelton type like pictured in the Engle, Gilbert, Shugart 2007 Guide.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Greg, seperate the 2 and add them to 'Your watches' then post as unknown models. William, Owner/Operator of Watch Crystals, will help with identification and provide the glass You are seeking.

Yes Stephen, the dial is similar, this one is more of a 2-tone silver-Pear color. The ad scan is a bit fuzzy, but it also looks 2-tone.
