Additional Information: 

NOS (New Old Stock) 1949 Bulova His Excellency "JJ" with promotional "Coca-Cola" Dial. This is the whole package, rose gold watch, original Kreisler link rose gold bracelet, hang tag, guarantee booklet, signed clam shell display AND signed outer cardboard storage box. The only thing missing here is an icy bottle of "The Real Thing". Every aspect of this watch is wonderful.

As you might know, Mr Bob Bruno gave an arm and a leg for this beauty several years ago. He recently sold it me for a king's ransom. Well worth it, I didn't hesitate to pay the price.

Bob had this sucker locked up with the supposedly $500 bid in error & probably snipe insurance in the thousands! LOL Good luck with it Bob!
