The ad does it no justice at all, it is a good looking watch!

Diamond Excellency G for me as well.

Wow what a cool looking piece. I bet this looks great on the wrist. I like how the band has the same pattern as the case.

It's a very fair comment about the Beau Brummell / Diamond Excellecy period.

Doing a few searches shows that there are no Beau Brummells in 1967 and no Diamond Excellency's in 1966.....but then again this could justdown to the searches I've done. Someone may have a 1966 Bulova Diamond Excellency or 1967 Bulova Beau Brummell advert.

There's a good chance that this might actually be a 1965/66 Beau Brummell that was re-badged in 1967 as the Diamond Excellency 'G'

I'm on the fence until I do some more research or someone can present an advert showing it to be one or another in the correct time frame.

This is a gorgeous watch Ken, very very nice. I'm good with the Diamond Excellency G designation.
