No Advertisement that matches exactly so the subject is "UNKNOWN" yet this is a "BEAU BRUMMELL" http://www.mybulova.com/watches/5175

Mark, the subject watch is 17j and the BB you linked to is 23j. Diamond dial and 23j would tend to lean toward BB more so than diamond dial and 17j. IMO

I think he means this follows known parameters for a "Diamond Excellency" model more than the linked watch follows parameters for a Beau Brummel model, Darren.

Nice to see that consistency is still inconsistent

I gotta say it looks like the "J".  Text in ad states round crystal, square case.  Has correct diamonds (even the triangular 12 o'clock diamond), faceted crystal, hatched-pattern bezel.

DE J from me.

Great detective work Bobbee - The "J" looks exactly like it.
