Hi all

I think this may be a H.E. J  but I would appreciate members comments to help verify its identity

the movement is a 21 jewej 6BA. it marked 47 and stamped Bulova watch co.

The case is stamped 10k Gold Filled Bulova and has the serial number 792533

The watch is in nice condition and is running but needs servicing as it gains about an hour per day. It also has an engaving on the back which looks as though it was given as a gift to some ladiy.

I am not sure about the band. It does seem to match quite well but I can't find a match for it. 

The crown is stamped Bulova

If you are able to measure the crystal we might be able to narrow it down as I found the crystal packet I referred to above showing a small corner cut shape listed as a CQ264 measuring 12.1mm x 12.0mm. Does that match your watch crystal?

Oh and its labled as the Lady Bulova 'O'

Still could be from the Bulova Her Excellency series if the 21 jeweled movemet is original.
