Hello i just bought this original 63 Senator, Its missing the second hand and the pivoit(which the seller forgot to mention)anyway i have spare parts and had to clean the movement anyway..although it keeps great time as is....The watch came with what i know as the factroy matching band...which is nice to have...i plan on  cleaning this watch.the dial is in great shape and the movement is pretty clean..not as nice as the white gold Nos one that was just posted but...in great shape for its it age...I haven't been to much into watches of this era but i am finding out that i i do like them ...i figure i post it just to let people see whats out there....i think this watch will clean up nicely...i have so many projects right  now..including a sea clipper automatic, a commander and a few others...any comments are extremly are extremely welcomed, thanks

Does the inside of the back case cover have 2505 marked or stamped in it? I have the same case stamped Case 2505 which indicates it is for an 11AF movement. It is dated 1965 (M5) on the outside of the case. Must be the same model watch.  Is this confirmed as a Senator model? Thanks! Rob

Dave  We have more info on this watch.  See here: http://www.mybulova.com/watches/1963-unknown-4818

It's our first confirmed unknown :)  but we're working on a tentative model name.  Was it just the eBay seller who claimed this was an "original Senator"?
