Additional Information: 

This was purchased at an estate sale.  I have no information regarding the watch.  Thought it was dainty and very feminine.  Purchased for my daughter but would like information regarding the watch before giving it to her.  Thank you.  I'm not even sure if the above information I entered is correct.  The movement? Or the serial number.

Hi
Can you let us know everything stamped on the inside case back and outside case back?  Also there may be a date code on the movement, as per Jabs link above.
I can't see if the lugs on the watch match those of the Diamond Pearl "G" ad.  Looks like diamonds are bigger on watch, and lugs smoother on watch?

I've seen an advert for this recently.......it's not from 1952 thought the L2 is part of the case serial number and nio the date code. I think the watch it from the 60s/70s.

Can you confirm the date code on the back of the case.

I think Will is correct. Here is another advert for the Bulova Diamond Pearl.

Hi Mleecash, welcome to myBulova, it's a pretty little watch you've bought for your daughter. I agree with Will and Stephen that it might be the Diamond Pearl model. Can you tell us what is printed on the back, at the top of the case.  L27255 is the case serial number but the info at the top will help us date it correctly.
