Period Black leather strap in great condition, the type Bulova used, could be original. Stunning piece, I think it is a President variant, given the case and lug shape, and of course the date. Put in my 1960 President to compare. Has now been changed to Beau Brummell thanks to NOVA's sterling work.

Thanks Terry. I agree these watches aren't too old (since I was born in 1959 i like this line of thougt).  They are stunning.  Thanks for posting them bobbee

Same birth year, William! I've been looking for a suitable birth year watch, but nearest I've got is these two. I have several tanks from Benrus and Langendorf, and deco's from Gruen, Benrus and Elgin. I prefer the 1960's Bulova's, the unusual case designs of a lot of watches  from this decade do it for me.While I do love a lot of earlier Bulova's, especially the 1920's and '30's, round dials are my fave's. Berkshire is my Most Wanted, and I have a good copy by Elco, but have to sell a few watches to get a good model!

Lovely dial and great watch bobbee. I will keep an eye out for a nice Berkshire for you and give you a heads up when I come across one.
