For me it's definitely a Conqueror. Movement is 10A (LEs are either 10AN or 9AT), Serial number is pre 226xxx.

Nice to see a good dial with original lume.

Hi Richard - Great looking watch. I agree that this one is a Conqueror.

Closest I've come yet. My quest continues for my grail!! Now I have a '25,'26, 27, 28, 29, 30 and 31.....arghhh:) looks like it could have been it, if not for the movement. First 26 I have gotten. Had the open 9, had the inside case dates and serial.....Had a triangle on the early movement. Where can i find the list of serial numbers to help me out? I knew it had to start with 22.. But I don't remember were I read that. I'm going to have to start selling some to keep buying them:) my wife is going to kill me if I tell her how historically significant one more watch is!!

Just tell her your investing in the future and remind her of some of her spending habits, it might work!

Nice Conqueror BTW...

Hi Richard

Love that dial.....  Great watch.  You say you have a 1925 cut corner Conqueror too.  Is the '25 also housing an 10A (or 10P)?

Hey Will! Good to hear from ya brother, long time no speak. Sorry I misspoke. This one will be my second 26. The other one is a 10A. The 27 is a 10AN the 28 is a 9AT. But the 28 has the original strap! A brown beauty!! The others are LE2'S and 3'S all 10AN. Dying to pick up an original 5000. But I am very happy to have a 26 conquerer for sure! I might not know what to do anymore once I find one:)

Lots of stuff for sure. Not as much as we hoped for in wrist watches as far as catalogs from bulova headquarters but a ton of raw information. We have to get on the phone soon. I have had the same thing happen. Things have been crazy. No worries. Send me a om with your number again and I'll give you a call to discuss all the goodies at the NAWCC.
