Additional Information

Hello,  This is a Ben Hur I believe.  It is in pretty good condition with a couple of scratches on the crystal and a little wear on what I think is the original band and it started right up.  The back of the case reads B-10K gold filled, this is the first watch I have gotten with just a B for Bulova.  The inside reads Bulova New York.  It has a 21 jewel 10AE movement.  It has a slightly curved case and is yellow gold. Thanks.

The BULOVA " BEN HUR," Circa 1936. Sports the superior 21 Jewel 10AE poweplant. Long 10 karat gold filled tonneau shaped case. Uncleaned original AGN, butler finished dial. Original price: $42.50.

Similar to the "American Clipper," etc... but with a Tonneau (vs. hexagonal) shaped bezel opening, and the better 21J movement! This watch will soon be sent to Philip for restoration and resale, perhaps by late March, or so...

 

Best :-)  Scott

 

P.S. And I do have (3) more glass, for this model...
