Hi Everyone,

 

I do not know much about the watches but I do know some about the crystals since that is what I sell. I was looking thru my WC catalog and I found the

ladies crystal 10.4mm fits these bulova watches

Black Beauty

Carla (6776)

Coral

Eva

Lady Berkshire

Lady Maxim

Nocturne

and the Mens 21.2mm

Air King

Berkshire

Midnight Star

so that leads me to believe that the man's watch is an Air King & a Berkshire and the ladies is a

Lady Berkshire.

Hope this helps

 

Maria

Maria,

It certainly does.

The Gents Watch is beleived to be the 'BERKSHIRE', the 'AIR KING' has a Black Dial.

What Year is the Catalogue?

To be honest  I am not sure.  I purchased them on a Ebay a few years ago. They are all hand typed loose sheets not like the other WC catalogs I have. It was a lucky find! There is more info in these loose sheets than in my other catalogs put together.

"An ad in the database names the Ladies model 'LADY RITE ANGLE' and, as Ticker correctly suggests,  possibly We should call this Watch 'LADY BERKSHIRE' for identities sake, for now."

Just to comment on the black/ gold different bezels. Has anyone got any knowledge of case material? I thought it could possibly be silver and in that case, the B&W pics of the Berkshire from the Bulova employee could be tarnish build up. If you look at Bob Bruno's model, his bezel shows up dark in two of his pics. I recently took some pics of a silver gilt watch after polishing, and some of the shots still showed a dark case, even though it had no plate loss and looked shiny gold to the naked eye.

Food for thought.
