Case is 10K RGP with stainless back, dated L3, inside roman numerals of VII VII III to match the last three of s/n; butler finish dial with gilt markers looks to be original, has the 3, 9, and 12 numerals; 21-jewel 10BM movement is dated L1, so not sure if original or replaced at some point; crown is signed; also has the original Bulova band and President display case

1953 Ad showing a match to the current hands; period ads are not consistent with hand style, some showing the alpha style and some the dauphine style

Pretty easy to ID a Bulova President. This is another of the most recognizable Bulovas of the 50's. Nice to see the whole package.
