This movement SN is incorrect.

It should be 900301 or 307.

It has been read upside down, as all numbers should ALWAYS be read from the nearest edge of bridge/cock, as below in this expanded and inverted pic of the movement's SN.

Some numbers have meaning upside down and rightside up, however I doubt this SN starts w/ and "L".

You may be right Bobbee.   Let me have a good look at it under magnification and I will get back with my findings.

George, if you check the date of the first comment block, we started discussing this watch ID back in 2012.  Maybe Janet just sold it, but I'm betting it was another similar watch to which your referring.

Hi George - no I did not just buy it - Its part of my Bulova Ladies Collection and I have had it for several years.    It is a really lovelly watch and I still have it.

Hi William - your memory does you proud - it is the one you discussed back in 2012

Cheers

Janet
