1959 Bulova 23

Case is 10K RGP dated L9 with the stainless back, recessed crown; nice dial with gilt markers and black print, I think the shorter hands are correct for the smaller diameter seconds track; 10BPAC 23-jewel movement dated L9 also.

Not sure about a variant, could not find a match in the Bulova 23 series but it is similar to other 23's of this time. Different model perhaps, this is pre-Regatta.

Looks like the pepsi cola case. Bulova 23 from me.

Wow, this is a great looking watch Ken, nice job bring this one to the point of looking brand new. I really like the coin edge bezel and the way the lugs open where they join the case. 

I'm OK with a Bulova 23 ID.

Nice coin edge on that one.  They are usually torn up a bit, but yours is still pretty sharp.  Nice 23 grab man.
