What is this L0 stepped 2 tone?

 

Sorry for the sloppy presentation but I'm getting used to this site. Here are some more pictures. The crown is signed and later I'll add it if deemed necessary. The inside case picture is upside down. It says. 'Bulova 10kt Rolled Gold Plate Bezel Stainless Back NEW YORK'. 

Hi. Does anyone know what this watch is called? I haven't seen it in the ads.  Its a 15J 10BC movement.   Thank you.

More info. Its definitely a man's. The dial is actually silver with a frosted white patina. Doesn't show well in the first picture. The back is curved. The back is stainless and the bezel 10kt rgp.

Very nice looking watch. We will need to see a picture of the case back and you will need to pop it open and take pictures of the movement showing the calibre and symbol. There should be other info on the case back besides the 10K RGP. A date code like L1 or M1 and you will need to take pictures of the inside of the case back showing the Bulova signature.

I took the pictures you suggested but alas, they won't upload. Too big it seems. The crown and case are signed and I'll see what I can do about getting the pictures uploaded again. I'm new and wonder if there is a limitation on uploads? I could email them if someone would want to take a look beforehand.

The lugs look similar to a "Bruce" model but I have not seen it in an engraved or two tone.

Overall looks very sharp and I always love the way the two tone models stand out!!

I saw another site referenced in a forum here and it too had this one under 'Bruce' but had a disclaimer that the available ad only showed the 'Bruce' without the silver filigree. They mentioned that someone cross referenced the crystals available and besides the 'Bruce', the crystal would fit a 'Kenmore'. Solved?

rpongon,

It is good manners to quote the source, if you're going to use someone else's research.

The watch could be the Kenmore, or it could be an engraved version of the Bruce, or it could be some other model for which the crystal is listed in a catalog that I didn't review.  The case and crystal are identical to the Bruce, other than the bezel engraving.

Glad I could be of assistance.
