\"\"1960 President,10K RGP. Vintage Kreisler Da Vinci strap. Both in pristine condition. I love the way this sits on the wrist, the offset lugs present the watch at an angle to bring the face readily to view . The most iconic of the 4 1960 Presidents IMO. Now  designated "OW". Thanks Lisa, Bruce and william.

my cut and paste methods comment was deleted.  It should have been in a forum post.

I've been looking everywhere for that watch band! That's the band from the 1960 "Four Years in the Making" Ad (I belive). I'd love to know more about it i.e. brand and other markings on it. Congrats...looks fabulous!

Can you show the ad which has the "OW" variant.

President 3 stars.

Here's a low res version 1962 President OW ad (bottom watch below) from the forum post titled "A few more new models" located here:  http://www.mybulova.com/node/4572

I think the President "B" in the middle has been a case of "Unknown" status previously. I thought I had one but can't find it now. It's an interesting variant.

Why only 2 ticks? Not really bothered, I know what the watch is anyway, just curious.

The master has done it again. WOW Bobbee it just keeps getting better and better. I may have to come over there to England and take lessons on finding these gold mines you consistently come up with. Another nice one.

I prefer the old-fashioned copy, cut, and past method. 

Here are three straps.  From left to right, President, Regatta 23, Beau Brummell.

Definitely not the Regatta 23.  I think Bobbee is correct that the Beau is the best match for the strap on the subject watch.

Thanks, JP, and thanks for the cut and paste, I am so useless at doing, Lisa!
