What watch cant see any. Did you post a picture? L7 Is 1957 as shown in the chart

The following tables will help you date your vintage Bulova watch. Watches dated post 1949 have a 2 digit date code on the outside backcase (usually below the serial number), whilst watches dated pre 1950 usually contain a date code symbol on the inside movement (see below for examples).

Try to ad it as a unknown in the "My Watches" category under the home tab...much easier to upload pictures there.

How big is the image file and what is the format? You may need to resize the image to be accepted by the site. It bad to upload massive images straight from a camera, so see if you can resize it down to the required figures indicated on the upload screen.
