Additional Information: 

Runs about 4 minutes fast per day, needs cleaning and a new crystal.  Unable to find "Excellency" model name or "6BC" movement in data base, but not confident enough in my knowledge to make changes.  "LO" on case indicates 1950, but "A9" on movement indicates 1949.

Great work, everybody!  Another point in Bob's favour is that the movement is 21 Jewels, which matches as well.  While we're on that subject, should this 6BC movement be added to the database?

And when do we decide to move the Her Excellency 'BB' ID to "Confirmed" or some other status?

I'm new to the site, so just learning the ropes. I appreciatre all the help.

Nice job moving the ad image to beside the photo, OldTicker!  I'd like to know how to do that.

We are working on the details on the correct conformation procedure and hope to have something ironed out in the next few days. You are welcome to read and comment on the ID catagories thread as we as a group work on this together. You may also want to read some of the other threads and posts to give you an idea of the fun you can have here! ;-)

As far as putting the picts side by side, I save the ad to a file in "my pictures" crop the target watch to the right size rename/date it and upload it next to a copy of your picture. Just make sure they are close to the same size or it will post below it instead of beside it.

Welcome aboard and hope to see more of you Bulova collection in the future!

Three star ID on the 1950 Her Excellency.  Sure looks like the "BB" too.
