Certainly looks like a Bulova President. Would look fantastic all polished up with a nice brown leather band.

Hey Den. Since there's only 6 digits in the serial number the dash means the first number wasn't struck good.

If the fisrt number wasn't struck well do we date it by the movement date?

Dang if I know Den. Probably by the movement.

Admin,I think it needs more than a polish as there's quite a bit of brassing top and bottom.Maybe a replate job.
