1966 Bulova Diamond Excellency 'G'

10K White RGP case and back, dated M5, matching Kreisler band. 7BPP 17-jewel movement dated M6. Ivory or white dial with three diamonds. Case #2686.

Not sure if the year of this one places it in the Beau Brummell model group?

Variant 'G' discussed here, could be for white or yellow.

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.
